About us

For anyone interested in animals in art, the Tryon Gallery has become an essential port of call. For fifty years it has been encouraging artists and attracting the attention of enthusiastic collectors. I am very pleased to have this opportunity to pay a tribute to what has become a national institution, and to wish it continued success in the future.
