The Crossnore Fine Arts Gallery presents “Inherent Beauty,” the art of Julia Ralston, which will be on display for the month of September.
A reception will be held Saturday, Sept. 22, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“Like many other artists, I see beauty not only in our vistas, meadows, rivers and marshes, but also in out of the way places, transitional places, even in neglected places,” Ralston said.
This is evident in her work, with subjects ranging from an old rusted tractor to the colors of Ethiopia or a even weaving mill.
“This show, ‘Inherent Beauty,’ refers to the beauty that can be found in all things and is also in each one of us, put there by our creator,” Ralston said.
