Galleries and Studios
The artists and artisans in residence at Blacksburg’s galleries and studios don’t just sell their work—they create it while you watch: sculpture, glass, pottery, jewelry, violins, and more. Besides creating and exhibiting their work, they also offer classes to visitors who wish to participate.
Whatever your creative interests or aesthetic, you’ll find something pleasing in Blacksburg’s numerous galleries and studios.
