Concluding the Museum’s series of three exhibitions in celebration of Alabama’s Bicentennial of statehood, Alabama Landscapes provided a new perspective on Alabama’s landscape art and the artistry of those who pictured it. Paintings from the Museum as well as public and private collections illustrated the land we call Alabama from the Pioneer Era through the Antebellum and Reconstruction periods, the New South, and much of the twentieth century.
The show included important nineteenth-century oil paintings by visiting as well as resident artists as well as works by Alabamians Clara Weaver Parrish, Anne Goldthwaite, Kelly Fitzpatrick, and other twentieth-century artists.
