Randolph Arts Guild in Asheboro, NC, Offers Works by Ross A. Holt

Randolph Arts Guild in Asheboro, NC, will present the exhibit, the razure of oblivion: new work by Ross A. Holt, on view in the Sara Smith Self Gallery from Jan. 4 - 27, 2011.

Ross A. Holt is a poet with the camera. In his work there is a subtle beauty that far transcends the photographic medium. He finds and collects images, never staging, never lighting, and aside from some occasional cropping, the final image is presented essentially the way that he and the camera saw it. This speaks to the true skill of Holt's eye as an artist.

Ross states, "I seek to make images that, as T.S. Eliot said about good poetry, communicate before they are understood...", and therein lies the strength and subtle beauty of Holt's work. One need not know the objects from which the photos are taken or even that they're photos in the first place to enjoy the bounty of their harvest.

Holt's work has been featured in numerous solo and exhibitions from around the state and region.

In addition to the exhibition, Holt will join the Guild for a "Lunch and Learn" on Tuesday, Jan. 25, 2011, from noon to 1pm. This monthly event features an informal opportunity for the public to interact with the artists featured in the Sara Smith Self Gallery. The event is free and the public is encouraged to bring a bag lunch.

The Randolph Arts Guild is a multi-action, multicultural nonprofit organization dedicated to providing the citizens of Randolph County with the means to express themselves through the Visual, Literary, and Performing Arts.

We are supported by membership dues, shop sales, fund raisers, allocations from the City of Asheboro and the County of Randolph, Grassroots Grants funds from the North Carolina Arts Council, a generous business community, and a corps of stalwart volunteers.
