Junction Springs Art

Linda Dixon & Drew Krouse, Ceramic Tiles
Sponsored by Bob and Bonnie Meeker, Winn Dixie, the J. Richard & Sybel F. Hayworth Foundation, the NC Arts Council, the Ronald McDonald House Charities- International and NC Chapter, Acme McCrary and Sapona Foundation

In Junction Springs the artists have woven a beautiful tapestry of diverse and interconnected living things, incorporating flora and fauna from the North Carolina mountains, piedmont and coast. The overarching theme is water, a natural resource and a basic requirement for life. The mural depicts the movement of water from a mountain spring towards a river basin and finally into the sea. Rain clouds in the distance remind us that water falls, is absorbed into the earth or flows in rivers and creeks, evaporates, forms clouds and falls again, in an endless cycle.
