Tryon Fine Arts Center (TFAC) announces Sculpture 2013, a juried regional sculpture exhibition and sale, open from May 3-30. Exhibiting sculptors and the public are invited to the opening reception on Saturday, May 4 from 4-6 p.m. Artists receiving the cash awards totaling $1800 will be announced during the reception. Awards will be selected following the installation of the exhibition.
A call to artists in the southeast was made in January 2013 resulting in 53 submissions of artwork measuring from 10 inches to 10 feet from artists in western and central North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia. Accepted pieces will be installed in the lobby, the Mahler Room and Gallery I inside TFAC, and in selected locations on the newly renovated outdoor campus.
Sculpture entries are juried by Sherry Masters, former manager of Grovewood Gallery in Asheville, N.C. Masters has experience mentoring new artists and establishing special events, as well as judging craft shows across the eastern U.S. including ACC shows, TACA, Greenville Art in the Park, Kentucky Crafted, Heritage Arts & Crafts Festival and Niche Artist Awards.
