Timeless Vision in the Galleries at CSU

Susan Downing White

2020 season, Timeless Vision: Earth, Sea and Sky, curated by our new assistant gallery director Kendall Christian. The exhibition will open with a reception on Friday, January 31, from 5:00 to 8:00pm. Gallery conversations with artists and the curator will begin at 6:00pm.

The exhibition includes artwork by local and regional, as well as internationally recognized artists working in the genre of the landscape. The landscape is a relatively new genre in Western art that emerged in its own right only in the Romantic movement of the late nineteenth century, a time when all the battles against nature were believed to have been won and the “grand vista” became a preferred subject for artistic endeavors for the first time.

This exhibition is intended to celebrate the sublime beauty of the landscape without dwelling on the pressing issues of the natural world in this time of environmental crisis. It attempts to examine the various ways in which artists perceive the wonders of the world and give us a sense of our place in a very large universe.

The Galleries at CSU are located at 1307 Euclid Avenue on Playhouse Square.
