Tryon Fine Arts Center to offer Great Courses

Beginning on Tuesday, Jan. 12 at 10:30 a.m., Tryon Fine Arts Center will host a series of educational DVDs from The Great Courses. These programs will be held on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month, January through May. While each of these DVDs has a discussion led by a professor, we have local experts to further guide us in our exploration.

 

On the second Tuesdays, the programs will focus on Solo Piano Works with a discussion led by Beth Child; on the fourth Tuesdays, the programs will focus on The World’s Greatest Paintings with a discussion led by Tara Brannon. Each session will last approximately one and one half hours.

 

Dr. Elizabeth Child is an active performer who maintains a private studio in Tryon.  She holds a doctorate in performance from the Julliard School, a master’s degree from the University of Michigan, and a bachelor’s degree from Converse College.

 

Tara Brannon holds a BA in art history from Wellesley College and a MEd and a BFA in interior design. She has worked for a variety of arts and non-profit organizations and as an interior designer for large and small firms. Tara currently owns and operates her own design firm.

 

There is no cost of the series, however seats are limited to 25 people. To reserve your place, call the TFAC box office today at 828-859-8322. Sign up now and plan to come join your friends and neighbors at TFAC for this exciting opportunity to learn more about these great piano solos and the world’s beautiful art through both watching the DVDs and with guided discussion. After the series concludes, the DVDs will be available at The Lanier Library.
