From trains to hillbillies
Art enthusiasts can experience the unique art of Tryon Estates’ resident Lew Phillips Jan. 28 – 29.
Phillips spends a great deal of time collecting, sorting and meticulously creating his unique art – with an even more unique medium – matchbook covers.
From trains to hillbillies, and NASCAR to butterflies, the content of his creations is ever changing if not beautiful.
His one-of-a-kind collection, along with a number of his artistic works, will be on display this weekend at Tryon Estates. The event is open to the public.
It will include a presentation Friday, Jan. 27 at 7:30 p.m. and exhibition of the work
Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 28 and 29.
