Allen-based artist Greg Holmes invites us to consider the transient nature of our modern lives through his new exhibition "Foreign Soil" at Laura Moore Fine Art Studios from Jan. 12 through Feb. 6.

In speaking of this series, Holmes says, "In a mobile society, the experience of uprooting ourselves and then finding and redefining a sense of home in a new location is a common story for many. It has certainly been common for me. In this series I am exploring our near universal desire to find meaningful connection no matter where we might find ourselves."

Through combined uses of drawing, woodcut, and monotype printing, Holmes captures poignant stories from the everyday scenery near his home in the north Dallas suburbs.

You can meet Holmes during opening night for the exhibition "Foreign Soil" on Saturday, Jan. 12, from 7-10 p.m.
