We are proud to showcase the work of one of the newest members of our artists' co-op, photographer Ron Lowe. Specializing in nature and the countryside, Ron's work is distinctive in its display of brilliant color on stretched canvases which now fill our front window.
Originally from Tampa, Florida, Ron first became interested in 35mm photography while in the U.S. Navy. Upon leaving the service, he continued honing his skills, first as a reporter/photographer for his college newspaper and as a lead wedding photographer for a local studio in Cleveland, Ohio.
Eventually, his attention turned to the beauty of nature, and his love for all things living shows in his photographs of animals, birds, butterflies and flowers. Capturing nature in the wild has become his passion and occupies a great deal of his artistic effort. Ron has become an accomplished landscape photographer, capturing the beauty of the US and Canada, up close and personal, during his extensive travels across North America since retiring from a career with IBM.
Before relocating to Holly Springs with his family this past year, Ron was active in two Florida artist organizations. He is currently a member of both the Holly Springs and Fuquay-Varina Arts Councils. Camera in hand, he tirelessly explores our North Carolina scenery, from the beauty and wonder of the Blue Ridge Mountains to the ruggedness and ever-changing horizons of the Outer Banks. Gazing at any scene on Ron's canvases simply transports you there.
Please join us for Ron's Artist's Reception on Friday, November 14th, from 6:00 - 9:00 PM. As always, we will provide a variety of beverages and snacks, and you will have an opportunity to meet Ron and many of our other artists for a fun-filled evening and lively discussions in The Gallery. Mark your calendar, and please extend our invitation to your friends!
