Winners of TFAC Juried Sculpture Show announcedPublished 9:19am Friday, May 10, 2013
Tryon Fine Arts Center hosted an opening reception for Sculpture 2013, a juried show and sale, on Saturday, May 4.
Work from more than 40 sculptors is exhibited in the Mahler Room, the lobby and throughout the new gardens and amphitheater.
Juror Sherry Masters chose winners of TFAC’s first competitive exhibit, basing her choice on design, execution, detail, originality, installation and the wow factor. Masters said, “The entries were so strong, I realized I’d have a very hard decision ahead of me.”
Placing first in the show is the outdoor sculpture “Seed in Flight” by Adam Adcock from Banner Elk, N.C.
Dustin Farnsworth, currently living and working in Penland School of Craft, won second place with “The Understood Weight.”
Mark Gardner of Saluda won third place with his entry, “Boat Form.”
Laurel Hurst/Laurel Woods, Main Street Financial Group and an anonymous donor sponsored the cash prizes, which totaled $1,800.
Sculpture 2013 is on display through May 30 during regular business hours at Tryon Fine Arts Center.
