The September Art, Wine and Cheese event of Tryon Painters and Sculptors (TPS) will feature a demonstration by papermaker and painter Stephanie Kompathoum.
This is a first for the artist’s group. TPS has never featured a handmade papermaker at its event before and members said they are curious about how one goes about making paper and then assembling it into a painting.
Kompathoum has a papermaking business entitled Oakmother Handmade Paper. She offers classes and workshops for people of all ages and abilities. She is experienced in pulp painting and paper casting, often using local plants and other fiber materials.
The Art, Wine, and Cheese event will take place on Tuesday, Sept. 27 at 4 p.m. in the TPS studios at 26 Maple Street in Tryon. After the demonstration, attendees will enjoy refreshments and view the current exhibit of paintings and sculpture at the gallery.
