Artist Sophia Dow volunteers her talent to create a miniature theater with a curtain that rises as the Tryon Fine Arts Center Annual Fund Drive total gets higher. (photo submitted)

The Tryon Fine Arts Center has raised the curtain during the past year on performances, educational programs and social events while keeping rental fees for local arts organizations and ticket prices at a minimum.

Grants, donations and volunteers have made this possible. One such volunteer is helping us encourage continuing donations to the center by using her artistic talents.

Artist Sophia Dow has constructed a small theater to reflect how far the curtain needs to rise to meet TFAC’s Annual Fund goal. All you need to do is insert an annual fund envelope, a check, some bills or even change. Stop by the Tryon Fine Arts Center lobby to make the curtain rise – how long will it take? Any amount is appreciated.
