Who We AreDesert Moon Designs Studios & Gallery is a progressive contemporary gallery that includes working studios. The focus of the gallery is to showcase both emerging/established local and visiting regional artists. Several times a year special exhibitions are scheduled to introduce new talent or to bring focus to a certain art medium.
Through our commitment to community and social entrepreneurship, we have supported non-profits for over 25 years. We aim to make a difference by connecting art and community in new ways. 5% of gallery sales is donated to non-profits; a business plan we have practiced for many years and which has been adapted by many other artists, studios and galleries. This allows us to celebrate handmade craft, and to bring together artists who share the same philosophy.
Desert Moon Designs Studios & Gallery is a vibrant and collaborative business partner with the greater “community” as the Arts are essential to the development of all people.
The Gallery will provide a handmade soulful art experience for clients-customers while providing sustainable income for the artists. We will build partnerships in Asheville, Western North Carolina and nationally to preserve handmade in America. Our success will be measured by creating a diverse local, regional and national level of support for the “Arts” and artists. With an emphasis on showcasing the talent and skill levels of all artists, the space will honor and encourage diversity of thought, ethnicity and provide a venue for non-profits and/or charitable organizations to be supported through the business plan of the gallery.
