Chattanooga-based photographer Ron Lowery spent a decade capturing the Tennessee River in a series of stunning aerial photographs.

He will discuss the collection — now available in his 144-page coffee table book “Tennessee River: Sparkling Gem of the South” — at the Museum Center at Five Points on Dec. 5 at 6 p.m.

Lowery will sign copies, which are available at the Museum Store, following his presentation.

Admission is free for members, and regular cost of admission for non-members.

“Lowery’s photographs balance cityscapes and landscapes to perfectly capture both the sweeping grandeur and the intimate beauty of all 652 miles of the Tennessee River,” said Executive Director Hassan Najjar.

“We’re delighted to host a photographer who has so skillfully captured our region with his lens, and we look forward to having the community here for his Dec. 5 presentation about a book that should be in the hands of anyone who calls Tennessee there home.”

“Ron Lowery’s book provides a unique look at our region,” said Curator of Education Joy Veenstra. “We are excited to share Ron’s perspective with our visitors, both those familiar with Lowery’s work and those who are just discovering him.”

The Museum Center at Five Points tells the story of the Ocoee region through compelling exhibitions and dynamic educational programming that promotes history, culture and preservation.

The Museum Store features arts, crafts, and books from select artists, craftsman, and authors from within a 200-mile radius.
