Lisa Ellis Flanary, an assistant professor in Carson-Newman University’s Art Department, has a photograph in a juried exhibition that opens Friday, July 5 in Denver.

“Nature & Man” will open with a reception at Denver’s Journey through Landscape gallery. Flanary is one of just two photographers east of the Mississippi to have work featured in the 16-person show that examines the impact of development. The exhibit will run until July 27 at Journey through Landscape, which offers gallery hours each Thursday afternoon (12-6 pm) or by appointment.

“As the influence of man expands and takes over more of our natural setting, it becomes hard not to include these effects in photographs of nature,” explained juror and gallery owner Evan Anderman. “The images in this exhibition depict the beauty of nature yet entice the viewer to question how we are changing the environment around us.”

Flanary joined C-N’s art faculty in 2006, having taught as an adjunct professor for several years. A fine art photographer who primarily uses a 4x5 view camera, her classes include photography, art appreciation and art fundamentals. She earned a BA in history from Carson-Newman and the MFA in photography from East Tennessee State University.
