Plan Your Visit
Any visit to Asheville, NC, should include a day in the River Arts District (RAD). And a trip to the RAD would be incomplete without a stop at Riverview Station!
Whether you’re a collector, a shopper, a maker, or just enjoying the sights of Asheville, we welcome you to experience the special creative community at Riverview Station.
Riverview Station is a quick 5-minute drive from Downtown Asheville, Asheville Chamber of Commerce, Biltmore Estate, Biltmore Village, or West Asheville.
Riverview Station acts as the southern gateway to the River Arts District; we are the first building in the RAD as you approach from Biltmore Village.
We are also within a 2-minute drive from all other River Arts District destinations, including Curve Studios, Phil Mechanic Studios, The Wedge Studios, Cotton Mill Studios, Pink Dog Creative, and more.

Riverview Station is open to visitors year-round. Each tenant maintains their own open studio hours; some are by appointment or drop-in only, and others have regular posted hours.
If you would like to ensure that a specific studio will be open at the time of your visit, just give them a call in advance.
Several of our artists offer classes for those who want to try their hand at a new medium, or want to expand on their skills. Please contact individual artists for details.
There is so much good food nearby that it’s impossible to list all of the options here! But here are a few places to start.
If you’d like to stay in the RAD for lunch or dinner, there are plenty of great River Arts District restaurants. These are all within a 2-minute drive from our building.
Exploring Biltmore Estate before or after your visit to Riverview Station? Don’t miss the great restaurants in Biltmore Village (which is only 5 minutes away).
Of course, there are a lot of incredible Downtown Asheville restaurants, all within a 5 to 7 minute drive from Riverview Station.
Each tenant has their own personal favorites, so don’t hesitate to ask for recommendations during your studio visits!
