These recent landscape paintings were included in the Historic Northampton Museum's exhibition:

Laws Change. People Die. The Land Remains.

 

The exhibition title is from a quote by Abraham Lincoln: 

"A nation may be said to consist of its territory, its people, a

nd its laws. Laws change. People die. The land remains."


Co-curated by Sally Curcio and Anne LaPrade Seuthe, this exhibition of 2D & 3D works by 5 Western MA artists addressed the ways we relate to the places where we live and the impact we as humans have on the land. The work were exhibited in dialogue with objects from the Historic Northampton permanent collection  toreveal links between past and present experiences of the region's landscape. The works by the 5 artist speculate on a world where history is embedded in the present, and where the future holds an openness to what may be possible. The land has proven resilient. It will absorb our collective actions and energy. It may even guide us to the world we imagine. Artists include: Jesse Connor, Sally Curcio, Karen Evans, Anne LaPrade Seuthe, Jenny Tibbetts
