Twigs and Leaves Gallery is located in the heart of historic downtown Waynesville, a charming, small town situated in the mountains of Western North Carolina a few miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and Asheville. Our gallery features nature-related art and fine crafts primarily from Southern Appalachia but includes a select number of American handcrafting artists from other regions, with the works of more than 130 emerging and established artists. The gallery offers pottery and clay art, rustic and finished furniture, locally made jewelry, landscape photographs and paintings as well as quilted wall hangings, stained glass and metal fabrications. Local artists include pottery by Kaaren Stoner and Michael Lalone; Oil painters Jim Shackelford, Jenny Buckner and Jack Stern; Fabric art by Wendy Bowen; Jewelry by Bob and Lucy Gibson / Lucid Designs and Kim Thompson; and furniture by Mark Minus, Josef Fischl and Bob Grytten. All of this is beautifully displayed in a comfortable setting that encourages leisurely shopping. We hope you will visit us and take home a memory reflecting the breathtaking Smoky Mountains ~ a piece of art that echoes the wonder of nature.
