“Painting Inside and Out” will be held Friday, Oct. 19 from 9:30 a.m. – 4 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 20 from 9:30 a.m. – 4 p.m and Sunday, Oct. 21 from 1- 4 p.m. at Tryon Painters and Sculptors.
Davis is the granddaughter of J.S. Brown, who was a well-known painter in Tryon. She has studied under Ken Auster, Scott Christianson, Kevin Macpherson, Camille Pradizuw and George Strickland from the Oil Painters of America.
Oil Painters of America (OPA) was founded in 1991 by Shirl Smithson primarily to focus attention on the lasting value of fine drawing, color, composition and the appreciation of light. OPA is the first national organization to be established for the sole purpose of representing traditional, representational oil painters, with a membership of 3,400 artists.
Davis has been a successful painter for many years and currently has two paintings in the Williamsburg, Va. folk museum. She has taught beginning oil painting for Tryon Painters and Sculptors and is also a weaver.
