Exhibits Committee
Upstairs Artspace

Tryon, NC 28782

Your work will be reviewed in a timely manner and returned to you if you include a SASE.

Tues. - Sat., 11 to 5 p.m.  

The Upstairs Artspace is a nonprofit contemporary art gallery in downtown Tryon, North Carolina. We exhibit two and three-dimensional art and craft by leading artists of the Southeast, and particularly, the Carolinas. We have a long standing reputation for art that is sometimes experimental, often avant-garde and always collectible. Our artists are usually established in their careers, but we also welcome the emerging artist whose work is impressive for being fresh, innovative and challenging.

The "Upstairs" was founded in 1978 in the upstairs bedroom of a local artist. Today we occupy a handsomely renovated building with over 3000 square feet of exhibition space in three separate galleries. The exhibitions change every two months and are typically developed around a theme. The exhibits are curated by experienced Board members and we have a strong schedule of programs designed to educate children and adults through tours, lectures, workshops, demonstrations, films and classes in local schools.

The Upstairs is supported by memberships, public and private donations, sales of art, grants and fund-raising events. The UA is supported by the Polk County Community Foundation.

As a Non-profit Organization we always appreciate your participation and contributions!
