Morris Museum of Art Opens Philip Juras The Southern Frontier, Landscapes Inspired by Bartram’s Travels

The Morris Museum of Art presentss Philip Juras: The Southern Frontier, Landscapes Inspired by Bartram’s Travels on view from Mat 28,2011.

While there are written descriptions of the Southern wilderness before European settlement—particularly by the eighteenth-century naturalist William Bartram—almost no images exist that document it. By recreating these images, Philip Juras acquaints viewers with many of the important and imperiled ecosystems that remain in the South today—remnant natural communities that benefit from greater public awareness. Juras, a native of Augusta and a graduate of the University of Georgia (where he earned a BFA in drawing and painting and a master’s degree in landscape architecture), lives and works in Athens, Georgia.
