Artistic Weavings Opening Reception

March 9, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Barbara Francois’ bold and colorful paintings are inspired by Australian Aboriginal Dot Art and are akin to tactile woven fibers while Montagne Handwoven and Lyn Sterling Montagne’s linen fiber tapestries reflect an artisanal kinship to a painted work of art.
On Exhibit: March 9 – May 6, 2023

Opening Reception  March 9, 6 – 7:30 PM

Artist Talk – April 8 @ 11 AM – sign up coming soon!

Join artist Barbara Francois for an interactive art experience and discussion at the Tryon Fine Arts Center Pavilion. Barbara will take you on her personal journey of how a simple dot can be used to create art. Then, you’ll tap into your own creativity and explore Barbara’s methods to create your own art utilizing a variety of wooden dowels, paint and mediums to create intricate shapes and textures. No experience is needed, all materials are provided and you’ll go home with your own painting!

Hands on limited to the first 20 signees and the talk is open to all.♦
