ABOUT TAUPE gallery
Our gallery began in 2010 from the joy and excitement that we felt after visiting several artists and showings here in the Appalachian region of western North Carolina. When we decided to embark on this adventure, we wanted to open a contemporary art gallery with edgy products, just a tad away from
traditional pottery and paintings.
Another goal of ours was to visit as many artists as possible, find out how they work and hand pick them for our shop. Our selection guideline is simply stated, “If we like it, we can sell it!”
Visitors to our gallery often comment that they have never seen a collection of artists and their works this unique in any other gallery and that we have a great eye for finding pieces that are unconventional and special. One of our guidelines is to offer only handcrafted, one-of-a-kind works.
While we showcase artists from all over the country, easily 65% of them are located in the Western North Carolina mountains and foothills.
