Giannini exhibits in pop up gallery

Published 9:13am Monday, September 16, 2013

Oil painter Stephan Giannini will exhibit work in the window of the currently vacant storefront of 120 Trade St. His work was displayed on Saturday, Sept. 14.

Giannini is on an extended visit to Tryon and has been painting local scenes recently.

“The town is wonderful! I’ve quickly made friends here and people have shown some real support by buying a few paintings from me as I was set up painting. I think it’s because people love this town so much,” Giannini said.

John Gargulio invited Giannini to exhibit his work in the window, a kind of ‘Pop Up’ gallery, where artists use vacant commercial spaces to exhibit work.

There will be a couple larger paintings and some small paintings of local scenes.
