The Walsh Gallery is pleased to present “Crossroads: A Shifting Landscape” a multi-media group exhibition of contemporary landscape art curated by Jesse Gordon and Emily Ozga. The included artists address contemporary innovations in the landscape genre visually, thematically and through the use of alternative media. Artwork included in the exhibition also emphasizes the changing role of landscape art in the present day as a platform for socio- political discourse as opposed to a verisimilitude of the natural world. The curators developed this exhibition as a response to the traditional objectives of the genre, demonstrating contemporary concerns about the world we inhabit.
Featured artists include Louise Barry, Carol Chave, Travis Childers, Raquel A. Foote, Richard Gilles, Mikhail Gubin, William Hudders, Nina Jordan, Suzy Kopf, Jeremy Rosenstein Kortes, Franck Lesbros, Susan Maakestad, Jason Meyer, Bruce Pollock, Daniel Rosenbaum, Patrick Seufert, Susan Shaw, Rachel Sitkin, Ryan Thompson, Kati Vilim, Joe Waks and Sook Yoo. The selected artists include an international group, as well as artists from the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area. An exhibition catalogue with an essay by the curators will be available at the Walsh Gallery.
