Taylor Byrd offers a brief glimpse into the nature of the south through her photography.
"I want to show the viewer something they may know, but in a new way, rouse their creativity and perspective. I am learning how to tell a story, rather than to just 'paint' a picture."
Jake Thrasher shares some of his artwork, which focuses on the relationship between humans and nature.
"By showing animals and humans as one entity in my work, I am really trying to emphasize the importance of human interactions with nature. I try to incorporate whimsical, magical qualities in my pieces to allow the viewer to see nature from my perspective."
