Natural Histories, an exhibit celebrating western landscape, opens Friday, November 13th at the Carl Cherry Center for the Arts. Comprised of 23 paintings, the exhibit will include recent work by Tom Davies, Deanna Forbes, Sarah Healey, Mary Liz Houseman, Karen Kleid, Margaret Niven.
Organized to explore various time periods, styles, and themes in landscape painting, Natural Histories investigates the relationship between abstraction and landscape painting, the effects of photography on landscapes and the examination of the materiality in painting. The exhibit brings together the work of artists who have been working with landscape and may lack conventional aesthetic hooks of expression, narrative, and beauty; but these paintings are powerful aesthetic statements that reflect the complex and ambiguous relationship between humans and the environment—a relationship of particular importance here in the West.
The exhibit can be viewed during open Gallery hours which are Monday – Friday from 11am – 4pm or by appointment.
