Photographer to feature Roan

The Johnson City Area Arts Council welcomes all to
the art opening and reception of “Exploring the Roan,”
photography by Jeffrey Stoner on First Friday, September
from 6-8 p.m. The artist will also give a talk entitled,
“Photographing the Roan,” prior to the reception from
5-6 p.m. sharing the stories behind the images.
Stoner is known for making photographs that capture
the essence of place. His passion lies in capturing images
of the beauty and wonder that surrounds us. From
the mystery of a trail leading through the fog, to the
beauty of rhododendron fl owers highlighted by the fi rst
rays of dawn, his images tell a story that touch the spirit.
In 2012, he released his book titled “The Meaning
in Trees” which showcases his favorite tree images
from the Highland mountains to the low country of
South Carolina. He is especially known for his “Goats
of Roan” series and his landscape and wildlife images
have been featured in international, national, and regional
publications. It will be impossible for viewers
of the exhibit to escape overwhelming “warm fuzzies”
and a deep appreciation for our nearby Roan Mountain
Highlands when engaged by this body of work.
All are invited to attend the opening held at the Johnson
City Area Arts Council Gallery at 300 East Main
Street in downtown Johnson City. The JCAAC gallery is
also regularly open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays. The
Johnson City Area Arts Council is a designated local
arts agency supported in part by grants from the Tennessee
Arts Commission and others, and contributions
by members and businesses. For more information
