Contemporary Landscape Painting at San Francisco Studio School Gallery

The exhibition “The Nature of Landscape” at the San Francisco Studio School Gallery presents six Bay Area painters deeply involved with the issues of contemporary landscape painting. The exhibition substantiates the continued relevance of painting in today’s highly conceptual art world environment, as well as confronting the long history of landscape as subject. Each artist explores the faculty of perception in relation to the changing facets of nature. All are engaged in some means of working from observation while establishing an individual line between representation and abstraction. Societal and aesthetic statements resonate through the balance of natural landscape and evidences of the encroachment of built environments. The variety and vibrancy of approaches to the subject retain a unity of involvement through their dedication to the visual in painting and painterly qualities. As a part of this exhibition landscape becomes a provocative form for a contemporary view of painting and confirms the Bay Area as a vital center for painting today.

artists: Gina Werfel, Sandy Walker, Terry St. John, Hearne Pardee, Laura Harden and Lon Clark
