March Madness Starts Here in Asheville [2023]

Southern Conference Basketball Tourney

Welcome SoCon

March Madness Begins in Asheville!

Spring is just around the corner and after this winter we are all ready for nice weather and some BASKETBALL!

If you are going to the Ingles Southern Conference Basketball Championships (SoCon), we all know eventually you will have a break in the games of your favorite team.

There’s no better time to visit Mountain Made, a downtown art gallery (just a 4 min walk from Harrah’s, inside the Grove Arcade) and browse one of the best selections of local artwork in Western North Carolina.

What makes the Mountain Made art gallery so different?

Mountain Made is home to over 150 local artists, craftspeople and writers.  We specialize in supporting only those writers, artists and master craftspeople who live and work in the towns and communities in the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains.

While other area galleries may brag on the size of their square footage or how famous their out-of-town artwork may be, we here at Mountain Made we showcase only what we consider to be the best of what Western North Carolina has to offer.

Mountain Made has new artwork arriving almost every week:

  • Handcrafted artisan jewelry, & beadwork
  • Fine ceramic art and hand-thrown pottery,
  • Hand-sewn quilted wall hangings,
  • Hand-turned bowls & wooden decor pieces,
  • Original wall art and paintings,
  • Whimsical metal garden art,
  • Blown glass goblets and pitchers, plus fused & stained glass art

Any of our local pieces would make a great gift for that special someone who couldn’t come to SoCon or as a wonderful inspiration for anyone who is participating in the Championships.

We invite you to check out our local arts and crafts for yourself…

We Invite You to Visit Us Inside the Historic Grove Arcade…

And Take a Piece of the Mountains Home with You!
