Moore exhibits at Holy CrossPublished 9:21am Wednesday, July 31, 2013
The current exhibit at the Episcopal Church of the Holy Cross is by Elisabeth Moore.
Moore is a former youth member at Holy Cross and a graduate of Polk County High School. Many may recognize her name from her roles with the Tryon Little Theater. Moore’s photography exhibit is a reflection of her year in Sweden. Below is her statement of what you will discover in her work.
“Moving to Stockholm on a whim required a great leap of faith and led me to a year of growth and awareness of myself and surroundings. I moved in with a warmly generous and loving family with whom I worked as an au pair with their three children and great big dog. For the first time in my life, I explored a foreign land alone. Each place I discovered felt like a piece of heaven that existed only for me. It was a year of great change and a complete independence of the person I knew I had outgrown. Sweden led me to rediscover the great simplistic joys of life and nature: laying under the midnight sun, cracking open the shell of a soft boiled egg, walking in the snow, exploring a city at night. I want to preserve the emotion and memory, to look at a photograph to revisit and remember exactly how I felt in that moment. Words cannot accurately describe my year in Sweden, but my photographs can. This show is my journey of a year lived to the fullest.”
The exhibit is available for viewing Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
