Alabama Landscapes: Alabama Through the Ages
November 09 through January 26, 2020
On view in Goldman, Richard, and Rushton Stakely Galleries
Concluding the MMFA’s series of three exhibitions in celebration of Alabama’s Bicentennial of statehood, Alabama Through the Ages will provide 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 will illustrate 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 will include 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. Organized by the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Montgomery, Alabama.
