Honoring Our Landscape
Honoring Our Landscape explores the artistic interpretation of our lands by nationally renowned painters and photographers. This exhibition includes work by Victoria Adams, whose carefully rendered oils, recall the majesty and unadulterated landscapes of long ago as seen in the paintings of the Hudson River School. Sumptuously rich in color, James Cook’s thickly painted oils are a monumental and expressive interpretation of our landscapes. The exhibition also includes work by Michael Gregory, whose iconic paintings with barns and homesteads as subject matter, reflect on our migration westward and the beauty and isolation found in the Western American Landscape. Nationally renowned artist Theodore Waddell’s sophisticated modernist paintings depict abstracted cattle and horses dotted against landscapes of thick paint and recall his time as a former cattle rancher in Montana. Nationally recognized and beloved local plein-air painters, Sheila Gardner and Divit Cardoza create watercolor paintings that are both vibrant and energetic interpretations of our Wood River Valley and beyond.
