The following announcement was written by the East Tennessee History Center:
Come celebrate “First Friday” at the Museum of East Tennessee History on Friday, September 3, from 5:00-8:00 pm. The Museum of East Tennessee History will feature the infrared photographs of local photographer and businessman, Daniel Brent Golden, manager of Hart Graphics, Inc. In his artwork, Golden combines his two favorite avocations, photography and fly fishing, to create large panoramic images of North America's fly-fishing waters. Golden has recently taken an interest in the invisible light of infrared (IR) photography, using this technology to capture waterways throughout East Tennessee. For this special First Friday exhibition, the Clinch, Watauga, and Holston rivers will be featured. The series has been praised as “hauntingly beautiful” and as “containing a vividness and depth matched only by our memories.”
First Friday guests are also invited to tour the new feature exhibition at the Museum of East Tennessee History, Vanishing Appalachia: Photographs by Don Dudenbostel, Field Recordings by Tom Jester, as well as the signature exhibition Voices of the Land. Guests will also enjoy refreshments provided by Club Leconte.The “First Friday” evening is free and open to the public. The East Tennessee History Center is located at 601 S. Gay Street, across from the Tennessee Theatre.
