Gary Page Watercolors on View at Tryon Fine Arts Center in Tryon, NC

Tryon Painters and Sculptors in Tryon, NC, will host a Gary Page watercolor exhibit at the Tryon Fine Arts Center, Gallery One, from Mar. 4 through Mar. 27, 2001.

Page began his interest in art at an early age. In the 1960s he studied art with the artist Karl Lohse. In the 1970s he considered a career in commercial art and enrolled in The Famous Artist School in Westport, CT.

During his early years as an artist, Page worked in oils. Later he became interested in watercolor, and now works exclusively in this medium. Since he pursued watercolors, his work has advanced over the years and has developed into a very unique talent to capture scenes from everyday life. His work has a photo-like quality that is unusual in watercolors. His meticulously rendered paintings are reminiscent of Andrew Wyeth.

"My art reflects Southern life," Page says. 'Some people have been very influential in my life. Painting people and places around me realistically gives me great satisfaction."

Over the years Page has won many awards for his paintings, and his work appears in many corporate and private collections across the country.
