Written by 

George and Elizabeth Ellison, the artist and naturalist husband-wife team from Bryson City, will give a talk called “Blue Ridge Perspectives: The Natural World Thru Words and Images” at 7 p.m. on Aug. 5 in Highlands.

George is a writer, naturalist, lecturer and historian who resides with his wife, Elizabeth, an artist whose acclaimed watercolors can be found at her studio in Bryson City. George and Elizabeth have collaborated on many projects including: A Blue Ridge Nature Journal: Reflections on the Appalachians in Essays and Art. Currently the Ellisons are editing and illustrating a two-volume collection titled High Vistas: An Anthology of Nature and Descriptive Writing from Western North Carolina and the Great Smoky Mountains.

George and Elizabeth will discuss their latest venture, give readings from both Blue Ridge Nature Journal and from his upcoming book of poems entitled Permanent Camp, and share their artwork.

The talk is part of the Zahner Conservation Lecture Series held at the Highlands Biological Station. Sponsored by the Land Trust for the Little Tennessee and the Highlands Biological Foundation.
