Tryon Arts and Crafts wraps up 10-day guitar workshop Experience enriches students, leads to new career by Samantha Hurst

Guitars inside the Tryon Arts and Crafts workshop glistened from a freshly dried shellacking Friday, Sept. 30 as students in Gerald Anderson’s 10-day guitarbuilding workshop made finishing touches on their instruments. “It’s all been very exciting for me because I’ve never done anything like this,” said student Norma Henson, as she selected cosmetic details and prepared to place strings. Norma, or “New Hampshire” as one classmate jokingly called her after she inlayed her initials “N. H” to personalize her guitar, said she felt a real sense of pride in the accomplishment.

“It was a lot of work but when you see the final product you almost fall in love again,” said Henson. Norma’s true love, husband Dan, took part in the class two years ago. He currently owns eight guitars and has been playing off and on since he was 12. Dan convinced Norma to travel with him from Pickens, S.C., to take part in the workshop. Just down the road from TAC’s workshop is the shop of Tryon’s own luthier, Jay Lichty. Lichty participated in the workshop two years ago with Dan Henson. For Lichty, though, the workshop served as a catalyst for a new career. “The workshop really resonated with me,” Lichty said. “I had made a handful of ukuleles just as a hobby before, but I realized at the workshop that I could really do this.” While Lichty didn’t decided

then and there never to build another house, as his prior profession in home building was taking a beating from the economy, he did discover his entrepreneurial spirit quickly drawing him in that direction. Anderson said he, too, has been impressed by the fashion in which Lichty’s luthier business has taken off and is glad that a former student of the workshops really made use of the skills they learned. Anderson himself began building mandolins and guitars about 30 years ago under renowned guitar maker Wayne Henderson, who taught the class Lichty participated in. Anderson started after college, begging his way into an apprenticeship with Henderson. “I swept the floor – did whatever I had to do to stay in there,” Anderson said. Since, Anderson has mentored his own apprentice and taught nu(Continued on page 4)

merous classes on guitar making. He said making a good guitar takes a real craft – a love for working with wood to create beautiful notes and tones. The guitars on which this year’s workshop focused mimicked the Martin D-18 acoustic guitar style. The back and sides were cut from African mahogany, the top was made out of Carpathian spruce and the fingerboard and bridge of Indian rosewood. Students used a variety of new tools to form their instruments. They worked with a side bender

to wet and dry thin slats of wood into the curved form of a guitar. A rosette cutter allowed them to hollow out sound holes in the face of the instruments. Each student then signed each other’s leftover wood from the sound holes, as a momentum of their time spent working together. They also worked to sand the wood to a correct thickness, used drills to create slots for the string pins and thin slivers of bone for the strings to resonate over. “There is a lot of carving, a lot of detailed handwork involved (Continued on page 6)

with guitar-making,” said participant Peter Robson. “Every step has a lot of detail all along the way from cutting the pieces, to gluing them to sanding and reaming on the right side – every step takes concentration and focus.” Keeping such focus after sometimes 14-15 hour days of work could be difficult, but it built a true sense of camaraderie. By the fifth day, students had completed the boxes of their guitars. It actually took them 11 days to complete their products, but they all – including instructor Anderson – were impressed with their accomplishment of creating four entirely one-of-a-kind instruments. “It is hard to believe where we started from – that strip stock,” Robson said. Most all the students in the class were musicians or music lovers in their own right. The Hensons play harmony guitar, Ben Seymour is a luthier of

dulcimers and Robson, too, plays around on up to seven or eight varieties of guitars. Anderson, meanwhile, has made more than 25 recordings and has more than 200 ribbons from musical competitions; the most presti-

gious being best guitar player at the 2003 Galax Fiddlers Convention. The student musicians and luthiers also experienced the opportunity to perform onstage with their mentor and other performing musicians such as Wayne Hender-

son and his band and the band New 5 Cents. For more information about other craftsmanship classes at Tryon Arts & Crafts School, call 828-859-8323 or email

being paid through a transfer of the fire department’s Ford Escape. The town decided to transfer the Escape to its public works department. The new Tahoe will be equipped to pull the department’s trailer, which formerly had to be pulled by volunteers’ personal vehicles. The Tahoe has been purchased, and Davis said he expects it to be in service by the first of November. “The fire department will have a minimal amount invested in this vehicle due to the transfer of the Escape,”

Davis said. The air packs will be purchased through the 2010 FEMA Assistance to Firefighters Grant program. The town will purchase 16 air packs and place a cascade system on the department’s service/rescue truck. The cascade system will allow air packs to be filled in the field, according to Davis. The department previously had to take the packs back to the department to refill or use resources from neighboring departments, such as Columbus. The FEMA grant totals $92,000, with Tryon’s match

being $5,000. The fire department will also receive approximately $16,000 this fiscal year from the FEMA SAFER (Staffing for Adequate Emergency Response). The grant is used to fund the quarterly stipend Tryon volunteers are eligible for based on their participation in emergency calls and training activities. The grant also pays for “recruitment” materials, such as uniform parts, T-shirts, hats, etc. This is Tryon’s third year in a five-year grant from the FEMA SAFER. No local match is required.

The state reimburses the vehicle purchase 50 percent, according to Tryon Fire Chief Joey Davis, with part of the reimbursement

Bravo MarketPlace announces collection of fine artists Dan Lawter Ferebee announces his selection of fine artists for Bravo MarketPlace at 83 Palmer Street in Tryon. Diana Gurri and Bob Neely display various mixed media pieces. Linda Hudgins and Jim Shackelford exhibit paintings. Mara Smith and Ford Smith present photographs of the Southeast. Diana Gurri moved to Tryon from Melbourne, Fla., where she owned an art gallery. She holds a bachelor’s degree in art education from the University of Miami. Gurri’s focus at Bravo is on smaller works that are offsprings of larger wooden “quilts.” She says, “I take things I find, add them to what I have, mix them with past experiences, welcome unexpected outcomes and repeat the process until art evolves.” Bob Neely is a former mayor of Tryon who experiments with all kinds of media. Dan Ferebee has selected several “pointillism” paintings and sculptures to show at

Bravo MarketPlace. The sculptures are outdoor cement figures that incorporate stained glass and indoor wooden pieces that use flat panels and dowels to form the shapes. Self-taught, Neely states, “I seek to produce works that are unlike anything I’ve ever seen.” Linda Hudgins trained at Rhode Island School of Design and Converse College. Hudgins’ art has been described as energizing and renewing. An award-winning artist who has an extensive exhibition history, she says, “My travels and art studies in places like China and Africa have influenced my work tremendously.” Jim Shackelford is a well-known acrylic artist whose work ranges from landscapes to an impressionist exploration of creation. Painting full-time for more than 20 years, Shackelford is self-trained and has participated in numerous workshops. He comments, “Many of my works recreate an image in the traditional style of realism, while others generate an impression.”

Realtor van den Berg earns national ABR designation Joelle van den Berg of Beverly-Hanks and Associates’ Lake Lure Arcade office has been awarded the Accredited Buyer’s Representation (ABR) designation by the Real Estate Buyer’s Agent Council of the National Association of Realtors. The nationally recognized ABR designation is designed for real estate buyer agents who focus on working directly with buyer-clients. The program offers ongoing specialized information, programs and updates designed to help realtors stay on top of the issues and trends in successfully representing home

buyers. To earn the ABR designation, van den Berg was required to successfully complete courses in buyer representation and an elective course focusing on a buyer representation specialty as well as to certify professional experience. Joelle van den Berg and her family live in Mill Spring, and she provides real estate services in both the Lake Lure, N.C., and Polk County markets. For more information, contact van den Berg at 828-8994536 or


Photographs by Mara and Ford Smith and concrete abstracts by Bob Neely are among the art works at Bravo MarketPlace. (photo submitted)

Photographers Ford Smith and Mara Smith have been selling their imagery for more than 20 years. Represented by several stock image banks, they said they are excited to have been selected for the Bravo Collection of Fine Artists.

They offer limited-edition, giclée prints in various sizes. On Oct. 8, many of the artists will be on-hand at the Saturday evening Tryon Gallery Trot, which runs from 5 -8 p.m. – article submitted by Mara Smith

Animal communicator Curtis to give workshop in Tryon Anita Curtis will present a two-level workshop on how to telepathically communicate with your animals. This workshop, sponsored by Dr. Joy Baker, is based on techniques used by Penelope Smith, a pioneer in animal communications. Smith has authorized Anita Curtis to teach her techniques. Curtis’ students have included veterinarians, farriers, trainers, animal massage therapists and other animal professionals - as well as hundreds of pet owners. Curtis said what she enjoys most about her work with animals and humans is giving peace of mind to both. “We can understand how the animals think and learn their values. They all want to have jobs. There is a hierarchy within the pack, so respect is importantboth to give and receive it. Praise is needed, too, as it is with us humans. Keeping the animals informed about what is happening is also important to them. They are not afraid of death, but sometimes living can be scary,” said Curtis. Curtis’ workshop includes two levels. Level I is Saturday, Oct. 29 from 9:30 a.m. – 4 :30 p.m., with registration from 9 - 9:30 a.m. In this level students will learn techniques they can use to increase their ability to communicate with animals. Students will gain a better understanding of their animal’s needs, feelings, behavior and problems. The workshop will help recognize times one has already experienced telepathic communication with animals.

Students will participate in exercises and meditations, which increase receptivity to telepathic communication; learn how to quiet and focus the mind and practice sending and receiving telepathic communications - first with a human partner, then with animals. Level II is Sunday, Oct. 30 from 9:30 a.m. – 4 :30 p.m., with registration from 9 - 9:30 a.m. Level II is designed to enhance and broaden the skills learned in Level I. Completion of Level I is a requirement for taking Level II. Students will explore the viewpoints and feelings from within a specific animal, learn the technique of contacting departed animals, be introduced to some Native American customs and learn about rocks and crystals and their connections to us and to the universe. Animal friends will not be needed in person at these workshops. Students should bring up to three photographs of living animals for Level I and up to three each of living and departed animals for Level II. The photos do not have to be recent or clear but they must be of the student’s own animals or animals the student knows very well. Space is limited for this workshop. A deposit for the class is due by Oct. 10, with the balance is due at the workshop. For further information, contact Anita Curtis at 610-327-3820. Classes will be held at 239 Baker Drive in Tryon. Directions will be provided on request. – article submitted by Barbara Childs

Ben Seymour will explore Appalachian dulcimer traditions at the Tryon Fine Arts Center Thursday, Oct. 6. (photo submitted)

Ben Seymour, luthier, and The Ginger Thistles at TFAC What would you do if someone gave you a plucked psaltery as a birthday present? Or serenaded you on a Greek bouzouki? What if the song was about a flop-eared mule when you were expecting the sweet tones of an Appalachian love tune on a dulcimer? Luthier and old-time musician Ben Seymour will answer these questions and many more on Thursday, Oct. 6 at Tryon Fine Arts Center, when he will explore Appalachian dulcimer traditions in the second of the 2011-2012 “Explore the Arts” series. Seymour, a North Carolinian by birth, lived all over the Southeast while growing up. His exposure to Appalachian, Celtic

and Southern folk music, including nationally known dulcimer player Wayne Seymour, led him to a career as a luthier. He has been building his own Kudzu Patch designs and other stringed instruments since 1994. While at the University of Tennessee he met his wife, Becky Cleland, a singer, and with her formed the duo “The Ginger Thistles,” which has been performing since 1980. The program will be held Oct. 6 at 7 p.m. at the Tryon Fine Arts Center in the Mahler Family Board Room. Tickets will be sold at the door, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served. – article submitted by Karen Dow

Nelson offers autumn landscape painting workshop, Oct. 24 – 28 Tryon artist Richard Christian Nelson will teach his third annual “Autumn Landscape Painting Workshop” Oct. 24 - 28. The class will spend five days from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. at many different locations painting the changing colors at their peak. Each artist will need a field kit and a number of small canvases or panels to do two to three paintings per day. Beginners are welcome, and those who want to work in different media are welcome too, although the focus will be on oils. The Nelsons moved to Tryon in 2004. They opened a gallery in Tryon, Skyuka Fine Art, in December 2010. Nelson does a good number of portraits in oil and charcoal each year and said he treasures the time he gets to change gears and paint outdoors, especially with other artists. – article submitted by Richard Christian Nelson

CooperRiis founder selected as 2011 Asheville YWCA honoree The YWCA in Asheville, N.C., honored Lisbeth Riis Cooper, founder of CooperRiis Healing Community in Mill Spring, at its annual “Tribute to Women of Influence” (TWIN) ceremonies. More than 400 people gathered at the Diana Wortham Theater at Pack Place in Asheville on Thursday, Sept. 15 to celebrate the 2011 honorees. Riis-Cooper, one of 25 women nominees this year, was named in the Transformation category, an award given to “Any woman or group of women who has overcome barriers and transformed her life or the lives of others.” CooperRiis is a Mental Health Recovery Program founded in 2003, centered on a ‘healing farm’ in Mill Spring. Last year, CooperRiis added an urban-based campus in Asheville. Individuals with mental illness arrive at CooperRiis’ doorstep, often dis-empowered, dis-engaged, dis-eased and stuck. As co-founder of CooperRiis, RiisCooper has played a leading role in empowering almost 500 individuals over the last eight years since CooperRiis opened. “She has led the building of an entire organization that empowers individuals whom most of society would have relegated to a state of hopelessness rather than empowerment,” the YWCA announced. “Renowned author Oliver Sacks wrote about CooperRiis, saying that it has helped to revive the (nearly) lost virtues of community and compassionate care for the field of mental health care.” The other 2011 Honorees of the Year were Yaira Andrea Arias

Lisbeth Riis Cooper

Soto of the Center for Participatory Change, an organization working to help Hispanic families integrate into the community and achieve their dreams, and Women for Women: A Giving Circle of the Community Foundation of WNC. The winners were presented with custom ceramic awards, created by artist Catharine Brown and underwritten by John Cram and Matt Chambers of New Morning/Bellagio Art to Wear. Videos by Bourne Media about each Honoree of the Year are posted at the YWCA website: – article submitted by Jeff Byrd

Brown – Sales wedding Emily Margaret Brown and Matthew Holland Sales were united in marriage at 4:30 p.m. Oct. 1, 2011 at The Blue Ridge Overlook in Wintergreen, Va. The ceremony was officiated by Reverend M. Mala Cunningham. Wedding music was presented by Terre Voce, a cello and flute duet. The bride, who grew up in Tryon, is the daughter of Barry and Jo Stephenson Brown of Greer, S.C. Emily is the granddaughter of Margaret Hinson Brown, the late Major T. “M.T.” Brown, of Lexington, N.C., the late Robert H. “Bob” and Emily Myers Stephenson, who also lived in Lexington, N.C. Brown is a graduate of Chatham Hall in Chatham, Va., and the University of South Carolina in Columbia, S.C., where she earned a degree in psychology and sociology, as well as a master’s degree in social work. Brown is currently the family services coordinator for Strategic Therapy Associates in Lynchburg, Va. The groom is the son of Gary and Nancy Hockett Sales of Lynchburg, Va. Sales is the grandson of Harold O. Hockett, the late Holmes Holland Hockett of Lynchburg, Va., and Iris Kreger Sales and the late Oleon M. Sales of Madison Heights, Va. Sales is a graduate of Rustburg High School in Rustburg, Va., and Radford University in Radford, Va., where he earned a degree in business administration in information systems. He is a network engineer for Centra Health in Lynchburg, Va. Escorted by her father, Brown wore a strapless sweetheart neckline gown of ivory taffeta with a delicately fitted ruched bodice accented with lace appliqué throughout continuing to a slim fitted skirt with V-shaped back detailing. She carried a hand-tied bouquet of ivory hydrangea, roses and rhinoculous, accented with blues and pinks wrapped in taffeta and pearls. Meredith Brown, sister of the bride, served as maid of honor.
