Skyuka Fine Art is a traditional fine art gallery owned by Kim Nelson and her husband, artist Richard Christian Nelson.
Tryon is a picturesque town nestled in the Foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, with a long history of notable artists and artisans. Skyuka Fine Art specializes in traditional styles of landscape, still life and figurative painting. In addition to Mr Nelson, the gallery features artists who have reached a high level of success in their careers such as Richard Oversmith, Linda Cheek, Valerie Hinz, Keith Spencer, Jim Carson and William Jameson.
Notable artists of the past from the collection of Tryon art dealer Nowell Guffey will also be on display. These include Lawrence Mazzanovich, John Sylvan Brown, Homer E. Ellertson, and Amelia M. Watson. Generally these artists have significant relationships with the locale.
The Nelsons have also gotten to know many nationally known artists through Rich's career as a portrait and gallery artist, and they hope to bring many of these friends to Tryon for exhibitions and workshops. Eventually they would like to represent sculptors, fine art craftspeople, and all sorts of artists.
Along with original artwork, the gallery will have gift items such as greeting cards and books featuring some of the artists. In addition to traditional shows and openings, Skyuka Fine Art will host art-related events such as workshops, lectures, and performances. They intend to grow with the community of local galleries and businesses to make Tryon a destination for art lovers by co-hosting events such as gallery strolls and combined openings. Their ultimate goal will be for art lovers to find the gallery, its website, and the area to be a creative place where they can enjoy, discuss and purchase fantastic artwork.
