Press release from The Gallery at Flat Rock:
At The Gallery at Flat Rock, three artists examine the patterns, forms and calligraphy found in nature, building a bridge between art and the biological sciences. Connecting the dots tracing nature’s path, ceramics artist Alice Ballard’s solid forms derive inspiration from the architecture of living things; delicate paper works by Christina Laurel draw on the inherent beauty of fragments as clues to the whole; and the unwavering attention of Rosamond Wolff Purcell’s camera extracts the abstract from natural objects, yielding photographs that are as strangely beautiful as they are engaging.
On Saturday, May 6, at 1:00 pm, Alice Ballard and Christina Laurel will be in the gallery to lead a walking tour to talk about the inspiration and processes behind their work. A question and answer period will follow. This event is free and open to the public.
