2023 marks our 55th year as the leading artist membership non-profit organization in the Western North Carolina foothills area.  Our mission has not changed as Tryon Painters and Sculptors continues to grow, not only in membership, but in innovative art related classes and workshops. Follow our web site for many new offerings. 

TPS passed a milestone during 2022.  Our location at 78 N. Trade Street in Tryon is now mortgage free.  And with this we continue our goal of staying financially solid through our cautious budgeting and ongoing fundraising.  We are so appreciative of the Polk County Community Foundation and their commitment grant as well as many dedicated sponsors, donors and members.

Our growth has involved a lot of changes, but the passion remains the same and our mission of providing members with opportunities and resources for artistic growth has not waned. Tryon Painters and Sculptors continually seeks to engage the greater Foothills Community in promoting visual art.

New exhibits are held regularly with opening receptions for the public to socialize, browse and experience our gallery.  Our artist members have an ideal opportunity to network with each other and with local patrons of the arts.

But TPS will not stop or even slow down here.  We continue to accept new members, exhibit the work of our member artists, allow our members to sell their work, plan new and exciting classes and workshops for members and the community at large and to be creative in our future prospects.


Again, let me thank Polk County Community Foundation and our members, sponsors and donors.  We could not continue to grow as we have without them.  Our sincere gratitude to those who express their financial support.
