Upstairs Gallery in Tryon, NC, Offers Two Exhibits in March

The Upstairs Gallery in Tryon, NC, presents an exhibition featuring works on paper by three new artists to the gallery, which will be on view through Mar. 16. Then on Mar. 22, an exhibit opens entitled, The Line: Drawings and More, featuring works by Jim Creal and Kenn Kotara. This exhibition will continue through May 4, 2002.

The exhibition Works on Paper presents three exceptional artists in their first show at the Upstairs Gallery. Trinity Behrends, Guntram Gersch and Harrison Haynes will exhibit a variety of fascinating abstract and representational art in acrylic, watercolor and mixed media.

Behrends' abstract subject matter combines beautiful drawing with a style described as "wild abandonment." Gersch's paintings are distinctly modern and have been compared to the great abstract painter Hans Hofmann. Haynes' paints landscapes and portraits that convey a nostalgic but moody atmosphere.

The Line: Drawings and More is a comprehensive exhibit featuring such distinguished artists as Jim Creal and Kenn Kotara whose work will use line as the sole basis for the creative outcome. The drawings, sketches and paintings will be rendered in a variety of media.
