Landscape Exhibits Open at Thorne

From Jackie Hooper, Thorne-Sagendorph Art Gallery:

Hudson River School founder Thomas Cole and Dublin Art Colony artist William Preston Phelps will be showcased in two American landscape exhibitions opening in June at the Thorne.

Illuminating Landscapes and Recent Gifts includes landscapes that show Thomas Cole’s influence and will be on view from Friday, June 1 through Sunday, July 29 and Tuesday, August 28 to Sunday, September 16.

Wild Land: Thomas Cole and the Birth of American Landscape Painting uses a combination of large-scale banner graphics, immersive environments, media features, and other interactive strategies to reveal the way in which Cole, and other artists of his time, pioneered cultural conversation that shaped our perception of the American landscape. The exhibit, on display from Friday, June 15 to Sunday, July 29, does not include original Cole paintings. Additional events will be scheduled around this exhibit, so look for information during the summer.

The exhibits are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Wednesday and Thursday, noon to 5 p.m.; Friday, 3 to 8 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m.; and closed Monday and Tuesday and July 4 for Independence Day.

For more detail on both exhibits, see the full release at the news site.
