The Modern Landscape

Redline Milwaukee

My painting- Warm Sky, was juried into this exhibition.

Celebrating contemporary perspectives of landscape artwork
A Juried Group Exhibition

Exhibition runtime: June 7  –  July 6, 2018 (Opening reception June 7th, 6-9pm)

The Modern Landscape exhibition at RedLine Milwaukee is dedicated to the furtherance of artists whose perception of landscapes are innovative, captivating and display expert execution of the concept. Over the course of history landscape paintings have developed from capturing mountain scenes, gently rolling hills, and still water garden ponds to cityscapes and views of urban areas, even venturing further into the abstract. One thing that remains true is that landscapes are one of the most desired genres among art collectors.  By giving artists the freedom to determine what defines a landscape, this exhibition will explore and go beyond the boundaries of the traditional landscape, giving viewers a glimpse the state of contemporary landscape painting in the early 21st century.
