Greene, Hopps exhibit at Tryon Painters and Sculptors

Published 1:32 pm Tuesday, March 22, 2011

Tryon Painters and Sculptors will feature two artists in the month of April.

In Gallery One, Jim Greene will be exhibiting his eclectic sculptures, which consist of wood, metal, feathers and other materials he finds to enhance his creations. He will also be exhibiting paintings and wall hangings, which range from realistic to abstract.

The Mahler Gallery will feature the watercolor, oil, and mixed media paintings of Susan Hopps. Hopps has inspired small students as a second grade teacher for years. She cites Mathew Fox’s words as encouraging her to create: “The most prayerful, most spiritually powerful act a person can undertake is to create at his or her own level, with a consciousness of the place from which that gift arises.”
