Entries have been judged for the first juried craft show held in the Heritage Crafts Gallery at Tryon Arts and Crafts School.  When the show opens on Friday evening from 6 – 8 p.m., the public will view a diverse and innovative collection of fine craft including metal, clay, glass, fiber, wood and mixed media.
Craftspeople from the whole of Western North Carolina and the upstate of South Carolina have entered their best pieces. The pieces have been juried by David Voorhees and Molly Sharp, who operated the Hand in Hand Gallery in Flat Rock for many years.
The Craft Tryon reception promises to be an exciting evening with the announcement of cash prize winners at 7 p.m. Visitors can enjoy catered snacks and beer and wine as well as meeting the artists who have been accepted into the show.
The Craft Tryon show will be open to the public from April 25 – May 30 and visitors may visit the gallery daily from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.  The hours are the same for the Tryon Arts and Crafts gift shop offering a wide array of local artists’ work at affordable prices.
