Appalachian Spirit Gallery showcases the work of member and guest artists; provides an environment for sharing ideas, techniques, and information; and works with other groups to promote the cultural heritage of the Blue Ridge Highlands of Appalachia.
Located in Marion, Virginia, Appalachian Spirit Gallery was founded in 2005 by the Appalachian Spirit Artists Association, a 501(c)3 non-profit cooperative of artists, artisans, and craftspeople. In partnership with the town of Marion, Appalachian Spirit Gallery is located in an historic building on Main Street beside the Town Hall. This relationship supports the goal of being central to the development and promotion of the arts in the community.
Each year the gallery publishes an ArtWalk and Downtown Business Guide. The gallery also serves as a clearinghouse for visitor and tourist information. Cooperative members staff the gallery and are available to lead walking tours of historic downtown Marion.
From April through December, the gallery is open Wednesdays and Thursdays, from noon to 5:00 p.m., by appointment, and other times when artists are available. Appalachian Spirit Gallery is closed during the months of January, February, and March.
