Smelt Art Gallery


Smelt Art Gallery is a non-conventional art gallery located within the hallway of an old smelting plant. The Smelt Art Gallery building was previously used for aluminum smelting for Inco Alloys, a manufacturer of parts for fighter jets, and housed the reactor building for Piedmont Biofuels. They’re committed to connecting the community to local artists and artisans.

The unique gallery is part of The Plant’s campus and shares space with bmc brewing, an on-site brewery and taproom. Many artists offer online shopping, commissions, art classes, and private studio visits by appointment. Learn more about their members, watch their studio videos, and browse the galleries of artwork.
