The community is invited to visit the Tryon Fine Arts Center Facebook page at and vote for their favorite young artist by “liking” the image of the artwork. The piece with the most likes will be announced at the reception and live art auction on Sunday, April 23 at 4 p.m. at TFAC.

“The incredible submissions have been professionally juried and awarded,” said Michelle Fleming, marketing manager of TFAC. “But we wanted to make the exhibit more interactive and with a little more fun by inviting the community to vote on our Facebook page. These students should be very proud of their work, and this is another opportunity for them to be appreciated.”
