I recently drove halfway across the state to find the pottery capital of the world (or at least of the US) Seagrove, North Carolina. This is a tiny town where artisans create handcrafted pottery inspired by the traditions that began in the community over 200 years ago. Nearly 100 shops & artist studios are located in & around this quaint little town.
The goal of the trip was to bring back work from Blue Hen Pottery studio & Kate Johnston’s studio. 4 big boxes later, I was driving back across the state towards the mountains, eager to open them up & see what’s inside.
Join us at Woodlands Gallery any day of the week from 11-5. We would love to talk about all things pottery with you & share with you the beautiful pieces we’ve acquired.

A lot has changed at 317 North Main Street since opening our doors just two years ago. The ladies of Woodlands have exchanged catalogs for car rides in search of the best art around. We love finding and supporting talented artists, and there seems to be a lot of them in Western North Carolina. We feature over 50 local artists and are eager to add more nature inspired goodness to our collection and yours.
Since opening in September, 2015 our furry friend Dozer has passed away. We have fond memories of Dozer running around the shop like a maniac and being the only man allowed on the teal velvet couch. Margo, founder and owner of Woodlands Gallery, has since adopted a four-legged friend named Jasper. This peppy little pup celebrated his first birthday in August of 2017 and has been a local celebrity since his arrival at the gallery.
Woodlands has participated in multiple gallery walks, events, and fundraisers in downtown Hendersonville. Being a part of the small business community has been exciting and rewarding. We look forward to growing with this small town we call home.
