September Artist of the Month for Grateful Steps Bookstore in Asheville

 Flowers, Barks and Leaves: An Homage to Mother Nature

Ruthie Rosauer is in love with trees. She loves the lines created by trunk and branch, the lush textures of bark and leaf. Although she has taken snapshots for most of her life, it was her passion for trees that drew her to a more serious pursuit of photography. A pursuit that has since branched out to include flowers, landscapes, streams and rocks. Ruthie has harvested the best of her portfolio for this exhibit.

Ruthie’s photographs have been on display at the Blue Ridge Community College for the August 2014 “Bring Us Your Best” juried art show sponsored by the Arts Council of Henderson County, and are currently on display at the Tryon Painters and Sculptors Exhibit through mid-September at 26 Maple St. in Tryon, NC.

Grateful Steps Bookstore is located at 159 South Lexington Avenue, Asheville, NC 28801 (phone 828-277-0998)

There will be an artist reception open to the public on Saturday, September 6, 2014 from 2 – 3 pm. Refreshments will be served and Ruthie will be on hand. Photos below are from her series: “All Bark, No Bite.”
