Everson Museum of Art presents People, Place and Progress. Local Landscapes in Paint and Print

Everson Museum of Art presents People, Place and Progress: Local Landscapes in Paint and Print, an exhibition on view September 2, 2012, with free admission. People, Place and Progress ispresented in collaboration with the Onondaga Historical Association.

The works will include views of the Erie Canal, rural vistas, area waterfalls and gorges, plus local architectural landmarks such as former breweries, mills and stagecoach inns.

“A particularly interesting aspect of the exhibition is that it pairs these paintings with historic photos and prints of the same scene, documenting either the particular image or the actual historic landscape that inspired the artist,” said Debora Ryan, Everson senior curator. “The exhibition uncovers how the artist chose to interpret that Central New York setting and why those places help shape our regional identity.”

Major funding for People, Place and Progress is provided by Jack and Stephanie Rudnick. Additional support provided by New York Council for the Humanities and Delavan Center, Inc. Media sponsorship is provided by WRVO and WCNY. – www.everson.org
