The Tryon Arts and Crafts School in Tryon, NC, is excited to announce that seven local arts organizations will be joining us on site for the big “Celebrate the Arts” event on Saturday, Oct., 25, 2014. Each organization will be talking about who they are and what they do in the Tryon community, and most of the organizations will be providing a small performance or an opportunity to meet local artists or authors.

We are looking forward to a full day of artists selling their work, local authors signing books, poets reading from their work, musicians performing, and great BBQ and chili provided by Foothills BBQ.

We look forward to seeing you! The festival will run from 10am to 5pm on Oct. 25, 2014, at Tryon Arts & Crafts School, located at 373 Harmon Field Road in Tryon, NC.

Tryon Arts and Crafts School teaches hands-on classes and workshops in pottery, jewelry, weaving and fiber arts, blacksmithing, glass, lapidary, woodworking, and more. To promote the extraordinary artisans and craftspersons in the Appalachian foothills, we host special exhibitions in the Exhibition Gallery, maintain a permanent Heritage Collection, and sponsor festivals on our park-like grounds at Harmon Field on the banks of the North Pacolet River in Tryon, North Carolina. Tryon Arts and Crafts School was established in 1960 as a key part of the grassroots movement that led to the development of Tryon as an artists’ colony. Our 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization is supported by membership dues and donations. Members enjoy access to open studios and discounted classes. We invite you to join our friendly, stimulating, and enriching community by taking classes and workshops, browsing our galleries, spending time in our studios, shopping in our gift shop, and getting to know more about arts and crafts in the Tryon region.
