Event Description:
         The landscape as a genre is one of the most popular subject matters in the history of art. From the realists to impressionists, even the surrealists, the landscape as a changing muse has inspired artists for centuries.  The landscape as an art concept has further evolved in contemporary art, at times veering away from the romanticized picturesque images of nature toward other planes, like earth art, installations, and multimedia images.  Women’s deeper understanding of birth origins, connections of the womb and Mother Earth are perspectives that imbue art with distinct terrain, a geography embodied differently from the dominant male-dominated landscape.
            Opening September 30, 2013, and running through October 25, 2013, Envisioned Landscape: A Group Exhibition explores the landscape from the female point of view.  An Opening Reception, with artists’ talk, is scheduled for First Friday, October 4, 2013, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. with guest of honor Dr. Wilsie Bishop.  Location is the Tipton Gallery, 126 Spring Street, Johnson City, Tenn.  The exhibit is co-curated by Karlota Contreras-Koterbay, Slocumb Galleries director and intern Michael Hale.
           Envisioned Landscape: A Group Exhibition features work that manipulates the landscape and embeds it with a more complex content.  The co-curators are interested in exploring the artists’  ‘created’ and ‘imagined’ terrain as opposed to its traditional representation of scenery as it is. Some of the envisioned landscape presents its subject as apocalyptic or mystical and even psychedelic, revealing the artists’ exploration of media and their efforts to push the boundaries of what is considered ‘landscape’.
            The participating artists are Diane Fox (Tenn.), Megan Levacy (Ga.), Adriane Little (Mich.), Allison Luce (N. Carolina), Theresa Markiw (Tenn.), Mary Nees (Tenn.), Mary Bates Neubauer (Ariz.), Esther Randall (Ken.), Suzanne Stryk (Va.), and Denise Stewart-Sanabria (Tenn.). Sculptor Mary Bates Neubauer will present a lecture at the Art Annex on October 3, Thursday at 11:30 a.m.
            The Envisioned Landscape: A Group Exhibition is sponsored by Department of Art and Design, Urban Redevelopment Alliance, Women’s Studies Program, and Women’s Resource Center.  For more information, contact Karlota Contreras-Koterbay at 423-483-3179 or the Women’s Resource Center at 423-439-5772.  The Tipton Gallery is open on First Friday receptions from 6 to 8 p.m., Thursdays from 4 to 6 p.m. and by appointment. The exhibit and lectures are free and open to the public.
