In 2007, art gallery space was added to the Community Room of the Cuba Circulating Library. This was made possible by gifts from Jim and Delores Cross, and from Dean Benham in honor of his grandchildren, Jack and Claire Benham. This space is used to highlight the works of local artists.
Sharon Woodruff – “Photography Inspiring a Second Look”
About the Art
Photography gives me a means to feel peace and serenity, sentiments I want to share with others. Inspiration for my work comes from the beauty of nature. By capturing it through the lens of the camera, I can encourage and inspire the viewer to take a second look and appreciate God’s handiwork.
The subjects of my photographs are scenes from the natural world around me; I spotlight patterns and textures, as well as examples of rustic and timeless structures formed by man.
Waterfalls, rock formations, flowers, and forests, as well as old buildings that are the results of the craftsman’s hands, are among my favorites. Capturing the mood of wet, soaked pavement, or a bird searching for food, or the moment a crocus busts through the snow-covered ground, allows me to fulfill my desire to lead viewers to appreciate the seasons, beauty, and quiet blessings of life.
