Exploring Connections between Land and Landscapes
April 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This program is only offered through Zoom.
Curators Laura Rice and Eleanor Harvey will explore the tradition of American landscape painting and consider how we see the land today, long after the time the scenes were memorialized by brushstrokes. Paintings from the Adirondacks of the 1800s and 1900s serve today as a powerful tool in measuring the health of the region’s natural resources. While confronting the reality of human effects on the environment, we still have it in us to look to natural beauty—the lakes and rivers, mountain peaks and thick forests—for both personal reflection and human aspiration.
This program is co-sponsored by Adirondack Diversity Initiative
