World View: Landscape in Contemporary Art

Submitted By Christine Bender

Sun Gallery is delighted to announce the opening of "World View: Landscape in Contemporary Art," a new exhibit that is open now through June 1. The term "landscape" can be broadly applied to many artistic compositions and approaches. Traditionally, it describes the depiction of natural scenery such as mountains, valleys, trees, rivers, and forests. It can also cover the representation of the urban environment and, more broadly speaking, landscape may act as a background for figurative work where the narrative of the completed artwork relies upon the interaction of the two.

This exhibition explores the dimensions and boundaries of how we experience landscapes by bringing together juried submissions from artists working in different media and across genres. By juxtaposing ideas and approaches, the exhibition creates an interactive landscape of its own in which visitors are invited to take part.

"World View: Landscape in Contemporary Art" draws together over 30 Bay Area and Central Valley artists working in painting, photography, and sculpture. Artists include: Alex Miloradovich, Amy Nelson Smith, Betty Isabel Ferguson, Christa Schanda, David Miller, Eugenia Man, Fleur Spolidor, Glenna Mills, The DePietro Collective, Dr. Htain Win, Jane Neilson, Jimin Lee, Jorge Iniguez, Justine Pastores, Larry Bendoski, Linda Longinotti, Lynn McGeever, Mercie Harris, Tino Banuelos, Weite Ter Haar, Jon Nesseth, Nina Starr, Patra Steffes, Robert Wolff, Larry Van Deusen, Joanie Miller, Maureen Langenbach, Peter Langenbach, Tiffany Ciaccio, Loretta Siegel, and Jun Oregana.
