Upstairs Artspace in Tryon, NC, Highlights Glass and Landscapes

The Upstairs Artspace in Tryon, NC, presents an exciting group of exhibits including: Mountain Glass, Line in Landscape, and Constance Humphries: New Work, on view from Oct. 1 through Nov. 13, 2010.

Mountain Glass, the gallery's first glass exhibit in a decade, introduces 13 established and emerging artists, all but one living in Western North Carolina. They are Phil and Veda Bickley, Jeri Burdick, Susan Cannon, Victor Chiarizia, David Goldhagen, Jason Hoyes, Graham Lawing, Logan MacSporran, Jason Probstein, Irene Redmond, Shane Smith, Matt Tyner, and James Yaun. The show offers an impressive balance of structural and functional glass on a small to large scale - as well as a variety of glassmaking methods (soft, flame, fused, mixed media).

The exhibit, Line in Landscape, features landscape paintings with powerful horizontal and vertical line elements in styles ranging from representational to abstract. The artists are Dave Goldman, Pisgah Forest, NC; Janet Jacobson and Lori Raines, Hendersonville, NC; Genie Maples and Tom Pazderka, Asheville, NC; and Benjamin McKamey, Spartanburg, SC.  
Asheville, NC, artist Constance Humphries explores the psychology of childhood in abstract figurative painting.
