We know you love to come see those Smoky Mountain Area crafters and artists! And who better to capture the beauty and grandeur of the Great Smoky Mountains than a talented photographer! We are delighted to have this opportunity to highlight one of our local photographers, Eric Gebhart.
“Mr. Gebhart is a nature and landscape photographer who draws much of his inspiration from the Smoky Mountains. He endeavors to initiate the viewer to make a connection with the natural world around them.”
If you’d like to see some of his work in person, as well as meet the artist himself, don’t miss this chance: “Eric Gebhart will be one of the featured artists at The Art Market Gallery, 422 South Gay Street, Knoxville, TN. 37902 (1/2 block south of the Mast General Store) From November 5th – November 28th 2010.”
“Mr. Gebhart is best known for his breathtaking large format panoramic prints of The Smokies. Included in this exhibit will be his Fall 2010 limited edition release “Autumn Rush”. A 30 x 80 inch print showcasing the vibrant fall colors of Southern Appalachia and rushing waters of a pristine mountain stream, printed with such fine detail that viewers are drawn into the artwork, feeling they are a part of the scene.”
“There will also be several prints from his amazing black and white collection on display. These prints reveal Mr. Gebhart’s expertise in composition and tone, and elicit powerful emotions from the viewer. One of his clients recently stated, “I am drawn to Eric’s photographs because he enables me to see what I often miss on my own. I see so much more of the world’s beauty when I am able to see through his eyes.”
“There will be an opening reception on Friday, November 5th from 5:00pm – 9:00pm. Mr. Gebhart will be on hand to greet those in attendance and share in their enthusiasm for photography and appreciation of the natural world. Join us for refreshments and live Celtic music performed by Gil Draper.”
