Fine art aerial photographer Ron Lowery’s aerial pictures of the Tennessee Valley have been selected for the Arts at the Airport Flying Solo exhibit at the Nashville International Airport. Fifteen aerial images are on display in Concourse C across from Gates 10-13. Mr. Lowery’s show runs from Dec. 3 to Feb. 24, 2019. 

Mr. Lowery works from his art studio in the sky. He said nothing excites him more than discovering and photographing unusual scenes and textures from above. Using a special airplane he and his son built, he has flown over 35 states to satisfy his passion for exploration and art.

In 2003, tackling the greatest challenge of his life, he retraced the route of Lewis and Clark from the air. Flying 14,000 miles in his open-cockpit plane, he provided a new artistic perspective on the entire rugged country that the brave explorers discovered.

In addition to his fine art prints, Mr. Lowery has published two coffee table books, Chasing Lewis & Clark Across America: A 21st Century Aviation Adventure and Tennessee River: Sparkling Gem of the South.

Mr. Lowery said, “I am a rare combination of aerial artist and pilot. I’ve photographed landscapes and cityscapes from above in thirty five states. Having my own plane allows me to virtually live in the sky. Being able to fly for many hours, I can capture that rare moment of light or clouds that will disappear in a ‘poof.’ “

Mr. Lowery, and his unusual flying lifestyle, have been profiled on PBS and many national and international publications. He continues to do talks and shows across the county, as well as flying and having adventures. His photographs are also exhibited at the  In-Town Gallery in Chattanooga.
