PLEIN AIR PAINTERS: AMERICA'S INDUSTRIAL LANDSCAPE
September 19 – November 12, 2017
This exhibition of works by the Plein Air Painters of America explores the influences of industry on the environment. From living off the land to mining mountains, from raw-materials extraction to manufacturing and from farm to table, the physical and social transformation of place has become ubiquitous. By turning an unflinching eye to industrial landmarks, the artists in this show reveal the effects upon the landscape by mechanization and economic change.
This program is a collaborative project among the Plein Air Painters of America, The Tweed Museum of Art, The Duluth Art Institute, and The Great Lakes Academy of Fine Art.
