A collection of handmade books created by Kathrine Cays, artist-in-residence at The Rickman Store in the Cowee community of Macon County, will be on display this month at The Wilderness Society’s office in Sylva.
Since the early 1990’s Cays’ work has depicted elements from the natural world. In 2001, she began to involve minerals, metals, insects and found objects onto her canvases and panels, as well as into her sculptural works.
Cays sources spiritual wisdom and relationships to develop her central theme, which includes the placement of people within human constructions, the natural world and spiritual realms.
The Wilderness Society is on Main Street in Sylva.
