Spring Group Exhibition 
Illuminate Your Spirit - With Fine Art

May  28 - July 15

Carlton Gallery is planning its Spring Group Exhibition with an Opening Reception on May 28, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.  2022 is the 40th Anniversary of Carlton Gallery, so the seasonal exhibitions will reflect this milestone. A heartfelt thank you to the Mountain Times for the lovely article about me and my Gallery. Toni Carlton celebrates 40 years in art business as Carlton Gallery enters summer season | Mountain Times | I also thank the Watauga Democrat for the Best of the Best Art Gallery Award for 2022.

Current events and activities can also be viewed on social media;,
New paintings in various media are arriving at the gallery for its Spring Group Exhibition. Contemporary paintings, along with impressionistic and abstract landscapes fill the gallery with color, charming compositions, and compelling artistic endeavors.
The gallery is pleased to add two new artists, Lisa Bartell and Nicholas Stewart.  Bartell’s figurative paintings are imaginative and display a bold palette, while Stewart renders mixed media with structured impasto brush marks, emulsion pouring, glazes and drawing.  
Abstract figurative clay sculptures by Mary-Ann Prack range in size from 1 to 8 feet. They are crafted in primary colors with geometric purity of form using a specially formulated clay that has stone like hardness, strength, and consistency suitable for large scale construction.

New sculptural clay vessels with unique glazes by Eric Reichard
just arrived for Spring.
Oil paintings by the late Warren Dennis are continually rotated, as the gallery has an eclectic collection of his engaging figurative work. Dennis was the longest standing artist at Carlton Gallery whose figurative paintings are full of vitality, humor, and creativity. He was known for his “ordinary people doing ordinary things” rendered with an expression of a moment in time or the suggestion of an unspoken feeling or emotion.
Visit Carlton Gallery during the beautiful Spring Season in the High Country and enjoy a peaceful atmosphere while viewing creative artworks and handmade fine crafts by local and regional artisans.
The gallery is located 10 miles south of Boone, 7 miles north of Linville or Banner Elk and 8 miles from Blowing Rock at 10360 Hwy 105 South in the Grandfather Mountain community. Current Seasonal Hours are 10 to 5 Tuesday through Saturday, 11:30 - 5:30 on Sunday.
