Visit artists working amongst the beautiful light and charm of this National Historic Landmark
Marshall High Studios, which opened in late 2007, is located on Blanahassett Island in downtown Marshall, NC, 25 minutes north of Asheville. Built in 1925, the old Marshall High School consists of 28 studios, most of them original classrooms, plus an auditorium and stage that are also used for art events and workshops. The building has been completely renovated, but not to the point where the spirit of an old school building is compromised.
The studios are located in Madison County and sit on an island in one of the oldest rivers in the world, the French Broad River. Marshall, the county seat of Madison County, is quickly becoming a magnet for artists and craftspeople. It combines the ambiance of a small, historic river town with the convenience and affordability of being just outside the better-known Buncombe County.
