The Tryon Fine Arts Center will feature two exhibits during the Tryon Gallery Trot Saturday, Aug. 11, 5-8 p.m.
Local artist Ellen Delehanty will show 12 original scenes of Lake Lanier in the Mahler Family Room.
“In the spring of 2010, I started a series of watercolor and oil paintings of Lake Lanier,” Delehanty said. “I am excited to have this opportunity to share this series of pictures for the Aug. 11 Trot.”
Delehanty took watercolor painting classes from Lou Ingerson in 1978 when she returned to North Carolina, which she calls “God’s country.” After a few interruptions, she resumed painting under Bill Ryan and later took courses at ICC from Dale McEntire, whom she credits will nudging her back into painting.
The exhibit will continue through August.
In Gallery One, the exhibit “All Morris All the Time” continues. The exhibit features images of Tryon’s iconic Morris the Horse.
Wine, cheese and refreshments will be served.
