In this type of show, even beginners can enjoy and learn from showing and selling their art in a beautiful gallery space. The styles and mediums range from realistic to abstract, and subject matter was left open to the artist’s imagination.

The theme, “Style of No Style” comes from line in a Bruce Lee movie, where he was asked what style he fought with. His response was that he had the style of no style. The idea is to adapt, rise above limitations, and experience creative ‘flow’. There is sure to be something to please every artistic taste, and the works are affordably priced. You could end up with a piece created by the next rising star in the art world! Opening receptions at TPS are fun for anyone who loves art, and are a great place for art lovers, emerging artists and veterans alike to find inspiration, network and build friendships. Don’t miss out! 


The Style of No Style show will continue through July 20, 2019 at the TPS Gallery, located at 78 N. Trade Street in downtown Tryon. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. While at the gallery, you can visit the Gift Shop, which features the work of over 50 local and regional artists.
