A pillar of Tryon’s storied history with the arts celebrated a major milestone Monday evening. Upstairs Artspace hosted a gala to celebrate the modern art gallery’s 40th anniversary at its location in downtown Tryon. Artists, art lovers, public officials and others in the community gathered to check out the gallery’s silent art auction, view a timeline of the institution’s history and enjoy some hors d’oeuvres. Upstairs Artspace’s celebration of its founding will continue through December, with bidding for the silent auction open until Friday. (Photos by Ted Yoakum/Tryon Daily Bulletin)
