ATT is an annual Open Studios Event. It begins with a gallery show, at the Upstairs Artspace, that showcases artworks from the participating artists. Between 30 and 40 of the areas most prominent artists open their studios for this weekend to the public. Beginning with a Preview Party on May 4th from 5-8 PM at the gallery, which will be attended by many of the artists, the studios will be open Saturday and Sunday, May 5-6. There is a map and brochure available at the gallery, as well as many area businesses, that will allow you to visit the studios you would like to see. So, please enjoy exploring this area's hospitality, and experience a rare glimpse into the lives of some wonderful working artists. The studios are in and around Tryon, NC, Saluda, NC, Columbus, NC and Landrum ,SC. Because you will be visiting residential areas, please be thoughtful of the artist's property, and their neighbors property and driveway access, when parking. There are many restaurants and places to stay, that cater to this event as well, so plan to come to beautiful Western North Carolina for a great weekend!
Trek base is the gallery. Come at 10 Saturday morning for coffee and doughnuts (thanks to Tryon Painters and Sculptors!) pick up your map, and ask any questions you might have!
