Tryon Artists: 1892 - 1942

by Michael J. McCue.

Published in a numbered, limited edition of 500, in conjunction with
the 2001 exhibition at The Upstairs Gallery in Tryon, North Carolina.
Hardbound 8.5 x 11, 192 pages, 79 color and 90 black and white
illustrations. Includes exhibition checklist of 130 works exhibited, by
34 artists with portraits who worked in the artists' colony. Individual
biographies of these painters, sculptors, illustrators and fine art
photographers, plus six others who lived or sojourned in Tryon before
World War II, 37 portraits of artists.


Appendix briefly describing 30 other visual artists known to have spent time in Tryon during the period. Essay by Michael McCue, presenting an overview of Tryon's place in the cultural life of North Carolina and the nation, and suggesting why its artists' colony previously has not been recognized in the scholarly literature. He shows that it was the state's most important artists' colony for fifty years, and one of the most cosmopolitan and eclectic art communities in the South. This edition is out of print. Information about many of these artists, and illustrations of their work, is contained in Paris and Tryon available now.
