White Mountain School painting has long been admired for the ways that artists captured and embellished the natural beauty of the region. Equally embedded in those paintings is evidence of environmental change, from the impact of settlers’ activities including clear-cutting, hunting, and farming, to the industrial practices of pulp mills and mines. The exhibition will celebrate the great art of the era and explore dynamic environmental change as time passes over the land.
