The exhibition includes 29 works by 20 artists. White Mountain School painting has long been admired for the ways in which 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 text for the exhibition catalog was written by PSU professors: historian Marcia Schmidt Blaine and the Center for the Environment’s hydrologist Mark Green, and reflects the interdisciplinary approach of the exhibition.
