Tryon Gallery Trot ‘Family Fun Night’ June 8

Published 6:20 pm Wednesday, June 5, 2013

Some other highlights of the June 8 Trot will include:

Skyuka Fine Art is pleased to announce their next exhibit “Objective Beauty,” featuring the recent works of nationally known Greensboro artist Cecelia Cox. Cox is an accomplished artist who creates works of painterly realism. Originally having extensive experience in portraiture and figurative art, she is now most known for her evocative still lives. Cox will be present to answer any questions and to discuss her work.

TFAC will host a display of oil paintings produced by high school students in the class taught this year by artist Margaret Curtis. This will be the final night of the exhibit from the class in oil painting. Students and their parents interested in working with Curtis are encouraged to come ask questions of the teacher during the Trot and enjoy light refreshments.
