The Carolina Foothills Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for Tryon Painters and Sculptors recently to welcome the gallery to the chamber and to its new location at 26 Maple St. in Tryon. The new larger location not only has studio and storage space, but a gallery where the members can display and sell their art. Classes and workshops in painting, drawing and sculpture are offered. Pictured are members of the board of TPS, including Aviva Kahn, president (with scissors); Christine Mariotti; Karen Johnston; Alice Bentivegna; Angela Ross; Marie King; Jeanette Comer; Susie Welch; Sofia Dow; Tryon Mayor Alan Peoples and additional members. Also pictured are chamber director Janet Sciacca and board members Robin Julian (Julian’s Just Taxes) and Laura Weicker (Tryon Riding & Hunt Club).
