Current Display:

The art display at Oak Ridge Public Library for February is entitled, Magnolia Lane, a collection of vibrant nature compositions photographed by Robert Forbes.

Mr. Forbes grew up in the flatlands of the Midwest, but after following his family to East Tennessee in April 2001, he found inspiration in the majestic beauty of East Tennessee’s landscape.

In this exhibit, Mr. Forbes concentrates on one species of flowering tree, the tulip magnolia. This collection of 24 framed 8 x10s and 6 large glossy prints glow with daylight. The deep pinks and purple hues reflect the hope and vitality of a warmer season.

Other examples of Mr. Forbes’ art and inspiration can be found at A portion of any sale proceeds during this month will be donated to the Tennessee Arboretum. For pricing information, please contact the artist on his website.

Please visit Oak Ridge Public Library during the month of February to catch an early glimpse of spring!
