Works by Roshaven, Ray at old Book Shelf for Art TrekPublished 11:59am Friday, May 4, 2012
For Art Trek Tryon on Saturday, May 5 and Sunday, May 6, Patricia Roshaven and Christopher Ray will show their work at the old Book Shelf (across from the post office), 90 Pacolet Street, Tryon. Roshaven will show her photographs of the Carolinas and some of her recent paintings. Ray will show his sculptures and charcoal drawings.
Captivated by the beauty of this area, Roshaven said, “As a travel companion, the camera asks that I notice light and shadow, stories in my surroundings and intriguing compositions. Western North Carolina inspires me on an almost daily basis. Digital photography requires carrying out the technical demands of camera, computer and editing software. My approach to painting is very different. I may have a simple idea of where I’m going, but I enjoy painting the most when I have minimal thoughts of technique or of a final image.”
