Tryon Painters & Sculptors Peoples Art Celebration

Published 12:28 am Saturday, April 25, 2015


Dig out that smock, hunt up your beret, grab that young budding artist and come create art for all to see. Tryon Painters and Sculptors will hold a Peoples Art Celebration at their new gallery and studio space at 78 N. Trade Street in downtown Tryon on Saturday, April 25 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

You are invited to come by and create a personal piece of art on paper. Tryon Painters and Sculptors will provide all materials including paper, colored chalk, water based colored markers, and crayons.  Each piece of art will be hung on the “Guest Artist Wall” to be viewed by the public throughout the duration of the exhibition until June 6. At that point, you may then pick up your masterpiece to be hung at home or sent along to Grandma.
