“Fog over Waterrock Knob”

“Fog over Waterrock Knob” by Teri Leigh Teed.

Teri Leigh Teed’s fine art photograph, “Fog over Waterrock Knob,” part of her “Healing Spirit Art” portfolio, has been selected for an Award of Excellence in the New York-based “Our Bond With Nature” exhibition, which runs through Dec. 25.

Teed is one of 66 contemporary artists from around the world chosen for the juried show.

The “Our Bond With Nature” exhibition is featured on the “Healing Power of Art and Artists” website, www.healing-power-of-art.org. This organization is a community of artists, writers and activists who believe that art can serve as a catalyst for healing individuals, society and the environment, with a mission to raise awareness for positive change through art.

“One of our main purposes of this exhibition is to raise awareness by presenting a variety of powerful visual images and artists’ statements created by artists who care about the state of our environment,” said Renée Phillips, founder/director of the organization and director/curator of Manhattan Arts International. “The artists selected demonstrate originality, innovation and technical skill in their chosen medium.”

Teed is a multi-dimensional, award-winning artist based in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Sylva. Along with her visual artwork, Teed is also a songwriter and the author of “Seasons of the South, the Original Homegrown and Musical Storytelling Show,” which raises awareness for regenerative agriculture. Her stories and poetry are featured in numerous publications, including www.dailygood.org, a portal dedicated to sharing inspiring and positive news from around the world.

“Healing Spirit Art,” the name of Teed’s artwork, blends fine art nature and landscape photography, stories, poetry and songs with positive, inspirational and life-affirming thoughts and energies. Her logo features a mountain laurel branch, which represents her love for the Western North Carolina mountains.
