Artist Julia Ross paints a path, bringing light and healing for social good through her Finding the Light exhibition presented by Giddens Gallery of Fine Art on December 13-15, 2018 in Grapevine, Texas.
After the loss of her 26-year-old son this past summer, he became Ross’ source of inspiration for Finding the Light using painting as her channel to heal. Tumbling down the dark hole of grief, each stroke of the paintbrush brought enlightenment, healing and understanding to Ross’s new incomprehensible reality.
“Through my work, you will see that unfolding of my heart’s longing to connect as each new piece has grown with light,” said Ross. “Darkness cannot exist in the presence of light, specifically divine light."
Ross’ describes her son as force of nature and his power to help others will live on in the contributions of her work. The proceeds from Finding the Light will go to the National Coalition for the Homeless – reaching to serve the nearly 60,000 families currently experiencing homelessness in the US today.
