Curated by Tim Merrick, Landscape and Memory features works that use landscape as a vehicle to explore deeper emotion. While landscapes have been used throughout art history to depict a sense of place, many artists such as Frederic Church, Winslow Homer, Georgia O’Keeffe and Alex Katz have chosen to use landscape to express a more complex emotional state.

Merrick’s exhibit brings together a collection of work including, paintings, prints and sculpture by local and regional artists that also exhibit a more profound meaning in the landscapes that are portrayed. Featured artists are: Bill Hastings, Christa Wolf, Craig Mains, Dede Hatch, Kent Loeffler, Laurel Guy, Pamela Drix, Ralph Turturro, Suzanne Onodera, and Merrick himself.

This exhibit is made possible by grant support from the Brooks Family Foundation and the Community Arts Partnership of Tompkins County.
