Momentum Gallery in downtown Asheville has quickly become a must-stop for lovers of contemporary art. Find them at 24 North Lexington with a second location coming to 52 Broadway. With a mix of regional and national artists, find many influences of our mountain scenery in the amazing creations. While you'll find museum-quality art seen in the big cities, you won't find the snooty attitude. Casual browsers are welcome!

He is also sought out by the top emerging and mid-career artists for representation. Find works from many Penland School of Crafts artists here.
Curated exhibitions featuring exceptional paintings, original prints, and innovative sculpture change on a regular basis. Also look for special events including openings and hands-on activities. Since the gallery as been such a big hit, it will gradually move to the bigger space at 52 Broadway that will be four times the current size!
