Art Trek Tryon 2011 Wrap Up – Thank you Upstairs Artspace!
Lichty Guitars had the good fortune of being a part of the open studio tour called Art Trek Tryon this year. We are so grateful to the Upstairs Artspace and to all those who support this wonderful non-profit through volunteer hours and through donations. Art Trek has become a very popular event in our community. It celebrates area artists by featuring their work in a gallery show and then by providing an opportunity to open their studios for a community wide tour. The Friday night opening was a huge success with a packed house. (I happened to get in early to shoot some images before the crowds.)
Saturday and Sunday folks grabbed their maps and followed the trek from studio to studio. At Lichty Guitars we enjoyed a steady stream of super nice art-loving / music-loving people. The shop was open for folks to see what goes into making a handmade acoustic guitar / ukulele and the studio was stocked with currently available instruments for people to pick up and play. It was a great weekend all around!
Many thanks to the Upstairs Artspace and to the 29 other participating artists and craftspeople. We felt honored to be in such great company.
