A few of the scheduled events are:
Richard Baker
Richard Baker invites art lovers to see his latest works, including “Lake Logan,” “Full Moon on Lake Lanier” and “Sunset Rock,” with moving skies and dancing water. Described by many as a prolific artist, Baker said he never fails to be inspired by the Western North Carolina Mountains.
“The beauty that surrounds us is perfect for my landscapes,” he said.

Green River Gallery
Green River Gallery will feature the original works of Charles Harpt. Limited edition giclees of Michael Bedoian’s celebrated bears will also be available.
Tryon Painters and Sculptors
Tryon Painters and Sculptors will host an opening reception for Joan Murphy. Murphy began her career in the field of fashion art but turned to painting full time in the early ‘70s. Her work has enjoyed ever-increasing popularity and critical acceptance since that time. After many years of painting the indoor-outdoor life of California and the Mediterranean, she switched her focus to the coastal marshes and beaches of the Southeast. Now the mountain landscape and changing seasons of North Carolina bring new inspiration.
