A free outing on a beautiful day is the annual Sculpture for the Garden Exhibition at the Grovewood Gallery, located behind Grove Park Inn resort hotel, just a few miles from downtown Asheville. This exhibit features large-scale, contemporary outdoor sculptures from nationally recognized artists from around the country.
This event is open to the public, and you can even stroll through the garden when the gallery is closed. Enjoy the natural 11-acre setting that surrounds Grovewood. Stroll the meandering ivy-bordered pathway and enjoy the mountain views across the valley.
