Temporal Witness – Tracing Nature’s Path

April 13, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - May 14, 2017 @ 7:00 pm


Temporal Witness
April 13 through May 14, 2017

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 energy and spirit 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.
Opening Reception Thursday, April 13, 5 – 7 pm; The Gallery at Flat Rock, 2702A Greenville Hwy, Flat Rock, NC;; 828-698-7000

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.
