SEEING BEYOND THE STRUCTURES [Portraits of the Landscape] ADAM BELLEFEUIL, RACHEL CAMPBELL and CAITLIN CARY @ Block Gallery - Raleigh Arts Commission
Exhibition Dates: Aug 3-Sep 16

Seeing Beyond the Structures [Portraits of the Landscape] ADAM BELLEFEUIL, RACHEL CAMPBELL and CAITLIN CARY August 3 – September 16, 2016 Artists Reception | First Friday, August 5, 5-7pm “Memory is the fourth dimension to any landscape.” ~ Janet Fitch, author Landscape artists of the past endeavored to capture the majestic scenery that was often far removed from most people’s lives. By contrast, the artists of Seeing Beyond the Structures [Portraits of the Landscape] have chosen to memorialize the modest structures we interact with in our daily environment. The works in this exhibition challenge us to stop and take notice. As viewers, we find commonality in these images—urban landscapes that go beyond what is captured on the surface to delve into stories of the lives and livelihoods behind them.
