Tryon Painters and Sculptors (TPS) opens a new show, Razzle-Dazzle, with a reception on Saturday, February 29th at 5:00 p.m. Razzle-Dazzle is a Guests / Members show that highlights the works of local and regional artists.

The guest artists include Molly Morning-Glory, an Asheville sculptor who began working with clay at the age of 4 in her parents’ pottery shop. She soon transitioned to sculptor and has won many awards and scholarships. Her work is in the permanent collection of North Carolina Pottery at the Mint Museum of Arts and Crafts in Charlotte.

Lance Brandenburg studied literature and art before becoming a chef. He did not leave art behind though and shows his Dutch Master style oil paintings at his restaurant Brandy’s On Main in Hendersonville.
