The Pennsylvania Landscape in Impressionism and Contemporary Art
Join us as we dive into the idea of the landscape as a powerful metaphor for the journey of life that we're all on. As part of Woodmere's "Pennsylvania Landscape in Impressionism and Contemporary Art” exhibition, we’ll hear from various artists and curators like Brian Peterson, Emily Brown, Peter Rose, Keith McManus and Ron Tarver. We'll explore parallel tracks in the way today’s artists view and love the beauty of the landscape, just as the Pennsylvania impressionists had more than a century ago, and how the urgency to preserve it still remains as Maura McCarthy of the Friends of the Wissahickon will share with us. We'll hear about how the Wissahickon Valley Park has inspired a strong sense of place for artists and the general public over the years.
