The Structured Landscape

Friday, November 17, 2017

Buildings of all shapes, sizes, and styles are ever-present in our environment. A simple landscape becomes more interesting when dwellings or other architectural structures are included as part of the scene. Familiar structures in a painting may help tell a story, evoke memories, indicate a place, or define a moment in time. They engage the viewer with questions such as: where is this place, who constructed these buildings, why were they built, and where are the people who built them? What memories will the artwork in this exhibit evoke in you? This exhibition is the sixth in a series, focusing on various artists, styles and trends, pulled exclusively from the Museum's outstanding collection of contemporary American aquamedia. This exhibit was guest curated by Cindy Quayle, Exhibitions Manager.
