"Two Landscape Exhibitions"
2001-11-16 until 2002-01-05
Arlington Museum of Art
Arlington, TX, USA United States of America

In the Joyner Gallery on the main level will be a two-person exhibition featuring large paintings by Dan Blagg and Jim Woodson, curated by Rachel Bounds. Upstairs, in the Allan Saxe Mezzanine Galleries will be a group exhibition of various media and scale, curated by Anne Allen.

Place: Day/Night features the works of two established Fort Worth painters not previously shown at the museum: Blagg and Woodson. For this exhibition of large paintings, curator Bounds has selected a new body of work by Blagg featuring night urban scenes and a new series of southwestern landscapes by Woodson. United by canvas, oil, and scale these works provide opposing views of the world around us. The dichotomy of day and night is echoed in the rural / urban, natural/manmade, vacant/constructed themes present in the works and while easily accessible to a wide audience worthy of deeper contemplation.

Sublime: The Landscape Re-Envisioned opens November 16 in the Allan Saxe Mezzanine Galleries and runs concurrently with Place: Day/Night, through January 5, 2002. As defined by Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, the quality of being sublime is: tending to inspire awe because of beauty, nobility or grandeur. Artists have long been fascinated with the landscape as a means of communicating the dreams, ambitions and conditions of their place and time. The Hudson River School artists in the early to mid-nineteenth century sought to transport their viewers to a spiritual state of being, in part through depicting a natural American landscape so glorious in its perfection that man was almost inconsequential in relationship to it. Artists today have a great variety of things to say about the contemporary landscape. Some approaches seek to capture the idyllic aspects of our urban/suburban surroundings; others personalize it with wit or mystery.
