Published 6:08 pm Wednesday, September 28, 2011

Two new establishments will join in the final “Tryon Gallery Trot” for this year on Saturday, Oct. 8 from 5 – 8 p.m.
Bravo MarketPlace joins the Trot this month with a group of local artists on display: Diana Gurri, Bob Neely, Linda Hudgins, Mara and Ford Smith and Jim Shackelford. Bravo MarketPlace and Thompson Landscaping is located at 83 Palmer Street (behind Stott’s Ford).
The Ferullo Fine Art Studio will hold its grand opening reception during the Trot. Pat Cole-Ferullo and Dom Ferullo welcome everyone to stop in and enjoy a snack, beverage and peruse the new gallery space located at 140 Pacolet St. The Ferullos are now showing watercolors and acrylics by Pat and mixed media and wood sculpture by Dom.
The Upstairs Artspace hosts an opening reception for its first-ever portrait exhibit, entitled “Lines and Lives of the Face.” An added attraction is a small exhibit, “This is not a portrait,” consisting of 25 drawings of the infamous Osama bin Laden made by local artists from a template by James Esber. The Upstairs reception, which is from 5 to 8 p.m., is preceded by the “Walk and Talk” tour of the art at 4 p.m.
Green River Gallery will feature the work of Charles Harpt during their late hours. Kiveo displays its continuously changing selection of artwork from local talented artists.
Tryon Painters and Sculptors will have a new member’s show that features not only members’ pictures and sculptures but the Claydie’s sculptures as well. Refreshments will be served.
Vines and Stuff is featuring new work by local wood turner Jim Mellberg, and a collection of local pottery from Tiffany Gipson and Little Mountain Pottery, including their new redware pieces.
Richard Baker will display four new paintings of the Tryon Toymaker Toys. Treats and apple cider will be served during the Trot in Baker’s studio.
Kathleen’s Gallery will highlight new work by gallery artists and introduce Douglas Chamberlain’s assemblages, combined architectural salvage with odds and ends of other recycled materials to create wall hangings full of texture and color. Textile artists Bobbie Thomas and Kathie Seatters, jewelry artists Monica Jones and Leah Weitzel and recycled plastic artist David Edgar all will display new work for the Trot.
Skyuka Fine Art presents “European Treasures,” a selection of artwork representing years of remarkable finds from local art dealer (via England) John Selleck. Selleck’s surprisingly affordable pieces generally date from the late 19th century to approximately 1930. The opening reception will be during the Trot, and Sellick will be on hand to discuss the work.
