Landscape comes alive when seen through the eyes of painter, poet, business woman, and world traveler Nana Lampton. New paintings and sketchbooks from recent travels are included in this premiere exhibition. In the Shearer Student Art Gallery is a bonus exhibition, juried by Lampton, Transylvania students dislay artwork inspired by travel and sense of place.
"Imagination is the eye. With it the artist hopes to see the invisible within form. A great force lifted the Chilean Andes from the geothermal crust. The mountains are the new land; no tracks, animals, or humans, just vertical possibility. The old river, formed by a series of glacial times, flows on, with mysterious eddies beneath its surface. The sky seems close on some nights, so we can see the Milky Way. We think of its vast dimensions, yet we know only 5% is visible to us. The artist thinks about the rest, and its effect on us."
─Nana Lampton, April 2011
