EN PLEIN AIR:

THE ARTIST AND THE NATURAL WORLD

Selections from the Permanent Collection

On view November 1, 2018 – February 9, 2019

Since the dawn of humanity, artists have looked to the natural world for guidance, inspiration, and understanding. This selection of works from the Permanent Collection of the Masur Museum and the Twin City Art Foundation features landscapes and other scenes from nature, though the artists have interpreted their surroundings in vastly different ways. From the romantic English countryside of Frederick William Hulme and the hazy bayous of Alexander Drysdale to the scientific specimens of Alberto Rey, take a journey through this exploration of nature, and art’s relationship to it.

Please note: this exhibition is in the upstairs galleries of our historic building, and is unfortunately not accessible for those with limited mobility.
