Woolworth Walk


In addition to the Downtown Asheville Art District Walks that occur on the First Fridays, Woolworth Walk also has our own art events regularly.

On the First Friday of every month, there is an Opening Reception for the Featured Artist in the F.W. Gallery. Woolworth Walk also has extended hours during the summer, fall and holiday seasons, a Seconds Sale in February and occasionally hosts a private party.

Woolworth Walk is pleased to announce the following Featured Artist Shows:

January 16–30, 2023Photography of Kathy Kmonicek

For the month of January, local artist Kathy Kmonicek will be featured in the FW Gallery at Woolworth Walk.


After working and living in New York as a photojournalist for over 30 years, Kathy 

Kmonicek has relocated to Morganton in the beautiful state of North Carolina. In her

short time here, she has found an array of new subjects to photograph: the 

magnificent and countless trails, mountain ranges, lakes, waterfalls, and scenic vistas of

her new home state.

Kmonicek’s background in photography includes being a staff photographer for two

major New York newspapers followed by a full time freelance career where she

photographed for The New York Times, the Associated Press, the New York Daily

News, and several universities in New York. Among her many awards achieved, as a

staff photographer for a New York newspaper, she has had the honor of being a

finalist twice for a Pulitzer Prize. She is most proud to be recognized as a Trailblazer of

Light, one of the Pioneering Women of Photojournalism; a generation of courageous

and fearless women who made their mark in photojournalism before the advent of

digital cameras. Her photographs have been published and recognized worldwide.

Kmonicek holds a Bacehlor of Arts in Studio Art and a Master of Fine Arts degree in

Photography. She has taught photojournalism and photography at various universities

in the New York Metro area.

Kmonicek is a member of the Burke Art’s Council in Morganton, N.C. where her

photography has been selected for the People’s Choice Award for two consecutive

years and has also placed first and second in photography. She is also a member of

the National Press Photographer’s Association. Her landscape and nature

photography is on display in three locations throughout North Carolina: Woolworth

Walk in Asheville, Craft’d and G & G Framing in Morganton.

February 1–26, 202310th Annual February Studio Clearing Sale


During the month of February, you'll find the Tenth Annual Studio Clearing/Seconds Sale occupying the FW Gallery - and spilling out to fill the center aisle, too, as many of our 170 local artists participate in the sale. Last year more than 60 offered discounted artwork!

In the last several years, more and more of our local artists have participated in the Sale and it's become a busy month as customers plan to be here to browse the sale. 

This is a "Studio Clearing" sale. Many artists bring items that they are clearing out of their studios or discontinuing - there's NO imperfection at all! 

Some artists are offering "Seconds", pieces of art which don't quite live up to the artist's standards, often only the artist is aware of the imperfection. Some seconds are true seconds that have a scuffed frame, skips in glazing or other possibly noticeable defect. It could be argued that seeing the evidence of hand-making brings more character and originality to the piece!

There are always prints, paintings, photographs, pottery, glass, jewelry, mixed media and fiber works to browse. 

Come find a steal of a deal on handmade local art at Woolworth Walk's February Sale, officially February 1st - 26th.

Word to the Wise! This event has a soft open on January 30th, which is the day that artists will start bringing in their sale items. That's why we've sent this email to you early! 

Artists will continue to bring items throughout the month.
