Tryon Painters and Sculptors has so much to offer. In addition to having large art exhibitions in Polk County that change 7 times a year, TPS has a marvelous gift shop with many diverse items made by its member artists.


The jewel that is the lower level of TPS is a space awaiting the community to explore. Tours are available during open hours, Wednesday through Sunday. This lower level is usually alive with artistic activity, such as art and clay classes.
