The Courtyard Gallery presents John Stoney: Medium opening reception
The Courtyard Gallery presents John Stoney: Medium. In this exhibition, Stoney assesses both the landscape of contemporary arts and the tradition of landscape in art. The Hudson River Valley School’s landscapes are as much Spiritualist encounters with the Sublime as realistic depictions of the great American wilderness; the wilds of the 19th century are metonymic to the vast unseen. Moving beyond landscape, we float in Emerson’s immaterial. Stoney reminds us of our relationship to the thin film of reality and thick stuff of fiction. We might need a psychic to tell us which Medium is.
Following the opening reception, the exhibition runs until April 30.
