If you spend lots of time in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park or in the surrounding area, you have seen the award winning, local photographer Eric Gebhart at work creating his masterpieces.

From December 7th - December 30th 2012, 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).

Mr. Gebhart is a nature and landscape photographer from Sevier County 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.

Mr. Gebhart is best known for his breathtaking large format panoramic prints of The Smokies. Included in this exhibit will be several 30x60 inch prints and enormous 30x96 inch prints showcasing the vibrant seasonal colors of Southern Appalachia. His images are printed with such fine detail that viewers are drawn into the artwork, feeling as if they are a part of the scene.

These prints reveal Mr. Gebhart's creative talents in composition, as well as his technical expertise. They also elicit powerful emotions from the viewer. One of his clients 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, December 7th 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 music.

I have had the opportunity to watch Eric at work numerous times and reviewed many of his finished fine art and commercial photographs and would highly recommend that if you are able to, you should attend any of his showings.
