Contemporary Landscapes

The landscape has been an essential part of an artist's expression. For contemporary artists, landscape painting still serves an important place and function, whether it is visualizing the human impact upon nature, searching for the right color passage.

In Contemporary Landscapes, curated by PAFA faculty member Douglas Martenson, artists Rackstraw Downes, Sara McCoubrey, Neil Welliver, and Peter Van Dyck explore landscape painting using a variety of media and approaches—including abstraction, invention, alternative media, and representational painting—with the local landscape in and around Philadelphia serving as a catalyst for their own artistic pursuits.
