A new Cross Timbers Fine Arts Council exhibit featuring the photography of Julie Roberson is now open at the River North Gallery and will run through April 28.

“This beautiful exhibit captures special moments and people from (Roberson’s) travels,” said CTFAC Executive Director Julie Crouch Smith. “Julie is so very talented, and has a knack for storytelling through her photography.”

Roberson lives in Stephenville and produces work for area businesses and families with fine art quality images and an engaging experience during the process.

She started focusing on photography in 2008.

“This exhibit is truly about the people and who they are and just life and how beautiful and different and odd and quirky it is here,” Roberson said. “I feel like I can truly see when I put a camera up to my face.”

Julie’s work earned her a place in the top five in the 2011 International Juried Photography competition in Fort Lauderdale, Florida where her work was exhibited at the Artists Haven Gallery.

Roberson has traveled to Australia, Asia, Thailand, Canada, Mexico, Ireland, France and Peru to photograph authentic life and natural beauty.

Roberson teaches individual and group classes of all ages, including mothers who want to capture those special moments.

“I love to teach and my classes are more about the basics of good composition and what makes a good photograph,” she said. “It’s more than just tips, it’s how you can see a little differently to get the images you want.”
