Katie Probst: Lotus Digital Photography with “Life and Landscape in the Lotus”
The summer months may be waning, but the artistic fervor in Downtown Wake Forest is thriving more than ever. On August 8th, The Cotton Company will hold a reception for local North Carolina photographer Katie Probst during Art After Hours. Katie Probst, known in the photography world as Lotus Digital Photography, has lived in North Carolina since 2006. A SUNY Empire State College graduate and world traveler, Katie desires to capture life through an organic process. She describes her work through the image of the lotus flower:
“While life can place your roots in murky waters [like the lotus flower], if you allow yourself to rise above, you can open up to the beauty and energy of life. All of that can be captured forever through art. You just have to leave your eyes and your soul open and [the beauty and energy of life] will be right in front of you.”
For this month’s exhibit at The Cotton Company, Katie will be focusing on life and landscape photography. Beginning at 6pm on August 8th, come enjoy free wine samples and refreshments as we celebrate life through photographs and meet this month’s featured artist, Katie Probst. The artist reception is free and open to the public. Katie is offering a collection of prints that are for sale and she will also be displaying her own private collection for us to enjoy.
