The Bell Gallery and Garden
Quite possibly the nicest little shop

Bill and Joanne Bell, Owners
Darcie Luster, Manager

Welcome. We opened our gallery in May 2006 after 25 years of exhibiting our work at art and craft shows all over the eastern United States. Our Gallery features the hand-made work of more than 100 local and regional artists and craftspeople. We have unique pottery, baskets, original artwork, jewelry, creations in wood and leather, blown glass, and our own work; Joanne's pressed flower suncatchers and beveled glass panels, and Bill's award winning large-format landscape photography. Our historic building is a rare stacked board, solid hardwood structure with lots of character and charm. In our back yard we have created the prettiest little hidden garden in the Blue Ridge, with unique and unusual garden art and décor.

Located in the center of town, we're just steps from the Floyd stoplight.

Joanne's Glass


Beveled Glass Suncatchers
With a Little View of Nature

   I do a lot of gardening before I can begin to make my pressed flower sun catchers. I grow and gather flowers, ferns, leaves and weeds and press them in flower presses. When they are dry I enhance my flowers and foliage with paints, inks, and dyes to prevent fading. After another drying process, I arrange them between sheets of beveled glass and solder them together using lead free solder and traditional stained glass soldering techniques. I embellish my work with a unique soldering style and also with various types of etched and stained glass. I gather inspiration for my crafts from all the natural beauty surrounding me in these wonderful Blue Ridge Mountains that I am so fortunate to call home. I travel throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, as well as forays into the Midwest to sell my work at juried art and craft shows. There's always a large selection of suncatchers at the gallery.
