Smart Bets: Truth Beneath the Roses

“As a biracial young woman, there is an innate lack of belonging,” writes local artist Liana Murray, a rising senior at Asheville High. “The need to shift between the black and the white world, and still understand the meeting between the two dictates the meaning behind my work.” Murray will debut her powerful, soulful collection of paintings and collage which, she says, convey the beauty of the true black citizen hidden beneath the roses within our society. The exhibit is on display at the YMI Cultural Center through Aug. 6. An opening reception takes place on Thursday, July 11 from 6-8 p.m.
