This event has ended.

GEORGE ADAMS GALLERY presents Four American Landscapes. The exhibition was curated by Jonathan Fineberg for the 99th Annual Exhibition of Contemporary Art at the Maier Museum of Art, Randolph College in 2010.

Each of the four artists selected for this exhibition offer a unique interpretation of the contemporary American landscape. Choi, who was born and raised in Korea, draws a chaotic landscape of cultural signifiers; Jones focuses on artifice, illusion and spectacle – his paintings are bright and textured eye-candy, yet subtly unsettling; Lenaghan is a master of light and color, his painterly decriptions infuse the fine details of forgotten places with unexpected significance; Joel Ross is acutely attuned to cultural hypocrisy in the “heartland” and he makes photographs of installations that slyly incorporate that reading into the landscape.

Jonathan Fineberg is the Gutsgell Professor of Art History and University Scholar at the University of Illinois. He specializes in modern and contemporary art, with a particular interest in emerging artists and in the psychology of art. His publications include Art Since 1940: Strategies of Being (Prentice Hall and the People's University Press, Beijing) and Imagining America: Icons of 20th Century American Art (co-author, Yale).
