Register Here Enjoy exclusive access to this Heritage’s 2017 special exhibit, “Painted Landscapes: Contemporary Views.” Explore a variety of landscapes through the eyes of contemporary artists, including Alex Katz, one of the most widely recognized American artists of this century, Paul Resika, Sam Cady, April Gornik, and others. Their paintings offer a range of styles, subjects, and approaches which, when taken together, form an intimate, contemporary, and startlingly beautiful collection that addresses what landscape painting is today. Each artist featured takes acute notice of the physical world at a time of heightened awareness of the landscape, informed by today’s concerns, including climate change, environmental health, conservation and the green movement. Discover their historical influences, interpretations of sense of place, and perspectives on the environment.

This private tour takes place while the gallery is closed to the general public, giving participants the opportunity to engage deeply with the artwork as Heritage staff share information that goes beyond the exhibit labels. Participants will have the opportunity to interact with each other and Heritage staff members to discuss and ask questions about the exhibit.

Members of Heritage receive free admission to this tour. Space is limited; registration is required. Ticket price includes admission to Heritage Museum & Gardens for the day.
