Join downtown Tryon on May 11 from 5-8 p.m. for the second monthly Gallery Trot of 2013. Galleries and business will open their doors on the second Saturday of every month through October for extended hours welcoming “Trotters” with a variety of items to peruse and purchase.

Some highlights will be:
• Live music near the clock tower, paid for with funds from Polk County Community Foundation.
• Sculpture 2013: a juried sculpture show at Tryon Fine Arts Center featuring work of sculptors throughout the Southeast. Pieces will be on display in Gallery I and the lobby as well as outdoors in the newly remodeled campus.
• New View Realty: at 285 North Trade Street in Tryon will have a sampling of home brewed beers made especially for the Gallery Trots. Sip and enjoy new artwork from Jim Shackelford and Linda Hudgins.
•Bill the Blacksmith will offer hands-on experience at the Saluda Forge on Ola Mae Drive above Trade Street. Bill said, “I always try to offer the opportunity to have someone experience the joy of striking hot metal for themselves.” Besides the demonstrations at the forge, the Gallery next door will have work of local artists and refreshments.
