• It’s hard to believe that a serious nonprofit space could survive in a small town for 30 years, but the Upstairs [Artspace] in Tryon has done just that! Their board is already making plans to celebrate the gallery’s 30th anniversary in 2008.

• Quote of the Week: Concerning her lack of interest in participating in open studio tours, Black Mountain printmaker Porge Buck remarked, “My studio is my work space. I treasure its privacy. I have no wish to deal with strangers, sales tax, or liability insurance. If someone wants to see my prints, they can make an appointment.”
