October Open Studio: Inner and Outer Landscapes
In art history, the term “landscape” refers to a genre or style of visual art that focuses primarily on depicting natural scenery, such as mountains, forests, rivers, valleys, and other elements of the natural environment. Landscapes can be both realistic and imaginary. They have been a significant subject in the history of art across various cultures and periods, though were originally seen as inferior subjects for painting in the French and Italian art academies.
An inner landscape in art refers to the representation of an artist’s internal thoughts, emotions, experiences, and psychological state through visual elements within an artwork. It is a metaphorical depiction of the artist’s inner world, often conveyed through symbolic imagery, abstract forms, and artistic techniques that evoke a sense of the artist’s emotions, memories, and introspection.
Drop in to the Target Studio during open museum hours and make your own landscape through a self directed, hands on art-making activity. Supplies and instructions are provided. Free and open to the public.
