Tryon Fine Arts Center will sponsor an exhibit of work in oil by the students of Margaret Curtis June 4 –8 in Gallery I.  A closing reception for the public to see the work and meet the teacher and students will be held during the Tryon Gallery Trot on Saturday, June 8 from 5-7 pm.

Ms. Curtis taught a foundational College Level Art class in painting to motivated HS students in Studio B at TFAC. Focus was on individual development of student skills, initially using primary colors and learning mixing techniques.   Projects included still life, self-portraits, and figure painting. The course was offered in three trimesters throughout the past school year.
