Published 9:17am Monday, May 20, 2013

In the month of May the staff and volunteers of Tryon Fine Arts Center are presenting a variety of visual and performing arts programs and events. Besides Sculpture 2013, a campus wide juried sculpture show, there are Kindermusik classes in the center and in the schools, a painting class for motivated high school students, and a grand-opening of the new amphitheater and grounds featuring free professional entertainment.

The center is also offering funding opportunities for local educators, creating a directory of creative artists in the area, and providing an arts immersion day for elementary students.  Patrons can enjoy exciting professional entertainment from family entertainer Billy Jonas as well as the award-winning blue grass band Steep Canyon Rangers.

Programming involves partnerships with other organizations such as Children’s Theater Festival, Tryon Arts and Crafts, Tryon Little Theater, Polk County and Spartanburg County Schools, Tryon Riding & Hunt Club and local galleries.
