At this months’ Art After Hours at In-Town Gallery, Chattanooga photographer Anh Bao Tran-Le invites viewers to step into the world of “Enchanted Treescapes.” This photographic exhibit celebrates the beauty and majestic presence of trees.

“In this collection,” Mr. Tran-Le said, “I will take you on a visual journey from individual trees to forests and arboreal landscapes."

The reception is Wednesday, March 6 from 5-8 p.m., and the photos will be on display thru March 31.

Officials said, "In his show, 'Enchanted Treescapes,' as with all his photography, Anh Bao’s goal is to connect people with the world around them--a world they pass through everyday.
He reminds us of the wonderful ways we can connect with the living world."

“As viewers wander through this exhibit,” Mr. Tran-Le said, “I encourage them to pause and immerse themselves in the stories these trees tell. Each image is a chapter in the narrative of nature, revealing the quiet strength of a solitary tree standing against the elements, the delicate interdependence of a forest ecosystem and the cyclical rhythm of growth, decay and regrowth. It is my hope that these photos will be a reminder of the ever present beauty that surrounds us, urging us to cherish and protect the fragile balance that sustains life on this planet.”

On Saturday, March 16 from noon-5 p.m., join Barbara Murnan for “Fire Works,” a demonstration using fire to hand forge and sculpt metal and stone into designs. Ms. Murnan fabricates her creations from sterling silver, copper, geodes, agates and fossils.

“My jewelry is ‘art you wear’. I use freeform design and marry it with an abstract expressionist sensibility, which I translate for today’s modern tastes," Ms. Murnan said.

In-Town Gallery also announces that Inna Beker has joined the gallery. Ms. Beker is a contemporary fused glass artist based in Marietta, Ga.

Ms. Beker said, “I am constantly fascinated by how glass changes its shapes, colors and sizes. There are always wonderful surprises when I open my kiln and see the magic that has taken place.”

In-Town Gallery is located ‘Between the Bridges’ on Chattanooga’s North Shore at 26A Frazier Ave. Hours are Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. and noon-5 p.m. on Sundays.
