On exhibition November 17, 2018 - January 26, 2019

We are pleased to announce our major fall exhibition Human/Nature, featuring over 50 paintings by notable American artists. In this exhibition we’ve chosen to focus on artists’ experiences of the natural world versus the human world and ascertain the lines where these two worlds converge. Each painting exists along a spectrum between the two poles and in deciding where these paintings fall, we’ve relied primarily on the power dynamic within the painting. To what extent are the human inhabitants of each painting in command of their surroundings? On one end are wild, uninhabited landscapes. As we move toward the human side of the spectrum, there is little or no reference to nature.

Accompanied by a 48 page catalogue, the exhibition features works by artists such as Albert Bierstadt, Ralph Albert Blakelock, John Joseph Enneking, Abbott Fuller Graves, Charles Webster Hawthorne, Jane Peterson, Frank Weston Benson, Severin Roesen, and N.C. Wyeth, as well as many others.

Human/Nature will be viewable online and in the gallery starting November 17th, 2018.
