Artists, It was no easy task deciding which works could be accommodated in the space.
Those selected represent a variety of media, approaches and attitudes. While overwhelmingly painting was the preferred medium among these submissions, the exhibit will include photography, sculpture, mixed media and both representational and abstract painting.
Nature plays a powerful role in much of the art in the exhibition. This is very much in keeping with Johnson and Whitney's passion for the environment and their appreciation of the artistic aspects of landscape. Perhaps what is most "now" is what has always been - the landscape before us.
