Wearable Art Show Opens at Tryon Arts and Crafts

Tryon Arts and Crafts School announces its new exhibit, a wearable art show, which opens today (Oct. 18). According to a press release, “The entries include handcrafted jewelry pieces, some of which were made by students in the jewelry classes at the school and some are instructor’s work. Many fiber artists have also entered their current pieces including Julie McIntyre, Diana Jackson and Christine Mariotti who are on staff. Julie is a dually talented artist with works of metal fabricating and felted pieces on display. The weaving group has contributed many colorful woven scarves and shawls. Pieces on display are one of a kind and affordably priced, perfect for gift giving.”

The show runs through Saturday, Nov. 16.
