SCAPE- Land, City, Sea, and Sky, an exhibition of work by artists dealing with some of the many facets of landscape in a number of media will open at Glen Hansen Studio, 1560 Youngs Avenue in Southold, NY (look for the big red barn) Saturday, November 12 from 4:00-7:00 p.m. Until the 20th century, which is really fairly recently, landscape art referred almost exclusively to pastoral and scenic vistas that were basically visions of paradise. Seascape was a term coined in the late 1700s and often was used to depict the turbulent sublime. William Turner created images of atmosphere and fire, swirling storms of dismay and power in the early to mid 1800s; the Impressionists painted mostly idyllic places of light and dappled color a little later. It wasn’t until the 1900s that landscape art began to include the gritty urban and cityscapes of contemporary life. And then the earth artists of the ‘60s and ‘70s blew the doors off the galleries and museums and took their work directly outside into the landscape. This exhibition shows and celebrates just a few of those advances in the idea of landscape art.
