The Kennedy Museum of Art is drawing upon its permanent collections to create a new exhibition that explores the many possible interpretations of landscape.
In "Scapes: From Landscape to Innerscape," visitors will experience traditional and abstracted landscapes as well as artwork that hints at the inner landscape of a body or mind in a state of a dream and fantasy. The exhibition will challenge established concepts behind traditional and romantic ideas of landscapes, reconsidering such concepts as gravity and weightlessness so that the viewer plunges into an imaginary world or "innerscape." The exhibition will run through Sunday, Sept. 6.
The exhibition explores both the mystery and beauty of the inner landscape or introspection as well as highlighting concrete images of traditional city and landscapes. Cityscapes, landscapes, abstracted 'scapes and innerscapes are represented in a variety of mediums including acrylic on canvas, intaglio, photo lithograph, oil on linen and woodcut, to name a few.
The exhibition includes, but is not limited to, works by Sue Wall, Ross Johnson, Louise Nevelson, Gertrude Greene, Aaron Bohrod and Clarence White.
All art displayed in the exhibition belongs to the Kennedy Museum of Art's permanent collections.
Museum hours are Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from noon to 5 p.m., Thursday from noon to 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. The museum is closed on Mondays and holidays. Parking and admission are free. Please call 740-593-1304 or visit www.ohio.edu/museum for more information.
