Hands Gallery

Hands Gallery

Hands Gallery, the oldest not-for-profit craft cooperative in the region, was founded in 1975 by a group of dedicated artists. Today, with 17 juried members providing pieces ranging from pottery and basketry, jewelry and clothing, photography, leatherwork, and serigraphy, it stands as a role model for Crafts Co-ops throughout the nation. Hands Gallery is located in the heart of downtown Boone at 543 W. King St. They are open every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.


What began as the dream of a small group of craftspeople in 1975 continues 30 years later in a very personal and continually-changing environment. The history of Hands Gallery Crafts Co-op is as varied and interesting as the artists who have come and gone over the years. Dozens of artisans have explored the business opportunities Hands has given their work, donating time and ideas to the growth and success of the gallery. Today, the co-op serves as a role model for crafts co-ops throughout the Southeast US.

Hands Gallery has provided a place for support and sharing between artists, creating not only a partnership in developing a business, but the basis for many long-term friendships. The variety of work and personalities have always made Hands Gallery an interesting and rich experience for members as well as customers.

Each of the 16 members has a full display of work in the gallery. It's the best place to see a full range of their work as well as the work of the consignment artists. Each day a member is working in the gallery. Frequently, you will enter the gallery to see someone weaving a basket, binding a book or designing a new vase as they sit at the counter.
