Award-winning Raleigh architect Frank Harmon will celebrate the release of his new book Native Places: Drawing as a Way to See with a Meet the Author/Book Signing event. Published by ORO Editions, Native Places is a collection of 64 watercolor sketches paired with brief essays about architecture, landscape, everyday objects, and nature. The sketches convey the delight the author finds in ordinary places. The 200-word essays, inspired by the sketches, offer his fresh interpretations of what readers might have taken for granted. Best-selling North Carolina novelist Angela Davis-Gardner will introduce Harmon to the audience. For more information on the book, visit nativeplacesthebook.com.
