Evergreen House Presents
The Landscape Tradition in American Art

Susan Ross, a doctoral candidate in the Department of the History of Art at the Johns Hopkins University, will present a gallery talk, The Landscape Tradition in American Art, at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 7, in the Bakst Theatre at Evergreen House, 4545 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

During her talk on the development of American landscape painting, Ross will examine the ability of landscape imagery to evoke a sense of national identity and shared experience in the viewer. By surveying the evolution of landscape imagery from the 19th century to the present day, Ross will explore the change from realist depictions of the American landscape to more abstracted ones alongside related shifts in the organization of American society.

The Landscape Tradition in American Art is presented in conjunction with Maggie Thomas: The Evergreen Paintings and Mary Woodall: Elements and Other Work, a dual show exploring how two artists use different media to examine our encounters with the natural world. Both exhibitions are on display through Sept. 14.

The gallery talk is free and open to the public. Ample free parking is available at the museum. Admission is to the museum is free for members of Evergreen House, $6 for adults, $5 for seniors and $3 for students and children over the age of 6. Admission to see the exhibitions only is $3.
