Falling Rivers Gallery is one of several fun things to do during your weekend in Albemarle. We are open Fridays from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM and Saturdays from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Our co-operative gallery features over 25 local artists who also staff the gallery. Come in and talk art with the folks who make it. Learn of the challenges of throwing a perfect bowl, making metal jewelry, fusing glass, or finding the perfect photo.
While here, check out the carved wood kitchen implements, the handmade soaps, functional sculptures made from rocks and roots, dreamcatchers, handmade flutes, pottery, jewelry, and of course traditional and abstract pictures and photos. Check out CRAFTAPALOOZA, where we feature local crafters and their work.
Two blocks down the street is the Albemarle Farmer’s Market from 8:00 AM until noon. Around the corner is Off the Square – a great restaurant for Saturday Brunch, with tasty versions of eggs benedict. Across the street is Glory Beans Coffee House, with espresso, treats, and craft beer.
We have four great wineries in Stanly county – three of which are within 8 miles of the gallery. Uwharrie Vineyards, Dennis Vineyards, and Stony Mountain Vineyards are all open on Saturdays from 10:00 AM until 6:00 PM. Rocky River Vineyards is about 25 miles away between Albemarle and Charlotte.
There is lots to do here – we hope to see you this weekend!
