‘Flights of Spring’ show now open at Tryon Arts and Crafts Gallery

All things flying, soaring, fluttering and buzzing around during the spring, either real or imaginary, are included in “Flights of Spring,” the member show now opening at Tryon Arts and Crafts.
A broad interpretation of this theme has resulted in a huge carved feathered dragon by James Greene; an old fashioned bi-plane entitled “the flight of the Tucson” by Bob Neely and a large painting entitled “Dream/Soar” by Diana Gurri. These are just a few of the subjects that member artists have entered to carry out the theme.
The media represented in the show ranges from delicate painted silk to fine silver to earthenware and fine woven cloth, as seen in Suzanne Monroe’s delicate weaving inspired by peacock feathers. As usual, a members’ show showcases the talents of numerous Tryon Arts and Crafts members who have executed unique interpretations of subjects in all of the media that are studied at the school in its numerous workshops and classes.
