For many, to think of landscape artists conjures conceptions of colorful true-to-life imagery or founding father of impressionism Claude Monet, and little in between. A new collection at the Lew Allen Gallery aims to expand that notion.
“Reimagining the Contemporary Landscape: New Views and Interpretations” transcends the commonplace realistic replicas hung in waiting rooms and hotel lobbies. The included works elicit the intangible emotions associated with the places depicted through both hyper-realistic and abstract approaches.
The group show features pieces from nine artists such as Christopher Benson, known for his use of color and ability to create coinciding abstract and representational pieces, and New Mexican residents John Fincher and Woody Gwyn.
The show's on view Thursday, January 30, through Saturday, March 15, at the Lew Allen Scottsdale, 7036 East Main Street. The art space is open to the public Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and on Sundays by appointment. Visit www.lewallengalleries.com or call 480-970-3600.
