Skyuka Fine Art opens ‘Historic Tryon Artists’ show March 24

Published 2:28pm Tuesday, March 13, 2012

One example of an artist who successfully did this was Augustus Vincent Tack, who moved here after living in New York and Paris. He and his wife sought out an equestrian-friendly area and found it in Tryon. The area quickly became quite fashionable as more and more creative types heard of their peers’ discovery of the area and soon followed.
This exhibit honors approximately 20 of these artists, all outstanding representatives of this group. They include Elizabeth Paxton Oliver, Will Henry Stevens, Robert P. Lawrence, Amelia Watson, Homer Ellertson, John Sylvan Brown, Augustus Vincent Tack and Lawrence Mazzanovich. These are all listed artists with a proven track record in sales and auctions. Many of them are in major collections and museums. Most of the work in this exhibit will be for sale.
Skyuka Fine Art is located in downtown Tryon at 133 N. Trade St. Visit, call 828-817-3783 or email for more information.
