As part of Tryon Arts & Crafts School’s Crafts and Conversation lecture series, the school welcomes Harry Goodheart, who will speak on “Adventures in Abstract Photography” on Thursday, Oct. 12 from 12 – 1 p.m. at the school, 373 Harmon Field Road. TACS developed the free series to provide an inside look into the art of craft for all within the community, and the talk promises to be fascinating!     

Harry has done a number of presentations on contemplative photography, writing haiku from nature, and various presentations of his abstract and other photographs. This interactive program incorporates a wide variety of his abstract digital work and is designed to stimulate insight, inspiration, and creativity for artists of all kinds.

Harry was born in Denver, grew up in the West Indies and has lived in Tryon for the past 20 years. An attorney and mediator by profession, he is a writer of haiku, bookseller (Goodheart Book LLC at 431 N. Trade St. in Tryon) and photographer by passion, and has been playing with cameras and light for over 50 years.
