From Southern Shores to Northern Vales
Alabama Landscapes, 1819–1969
November 09 through January 26, 2020
On view in Goldman, Richard, and Rushton Stakely Galleries
Concluding the Museum’s series of three exhibitions in celebration of Alabama’s Bicentennial of statehood, Alabama Landscapes 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.
Thursday, November 14; 7 PM
Please note, on this evening the symposium Bearing Witness will be underway. If you are interested in participating in the symposium, please click here.
This exhibition was made possible in part by a grant from the Alabama State Council on the Arts in celebration of the bicentennial of the state of Alabama.
