As a valued Museum Member, we invite you to join us for the reception of our newest exhibition—Honoring Nature: Early Southern Appalachian Landscape Painting.


Register Now  4–6pm, All Members.


Honoring Nature: Early Southern Appalachian Landscape Painting explores the sublime natural landscapes of the Smoky Mountains of Western North Carolina and Tennessee. While there were several regional schools of painting around this time, this group is largely from the Midwest and many of the artists trained at the Art Institute of Chicago or in New York City. Through their travels, they captured waterfalls, sunsets, thunderstorms, autumn foliage, lush green summers, and snow-covered mountains—elements that were novel for viewers from cities and rural areas. Though some of these paintings include people, they are usually used for scale and painted with little to no detail, highlighting the magnificence of nature. Read more.
