Landscape is the depiction in art of natural scenery where the main subject is a wide view, with its elements arranged into a coherent composition. Landscape views in art may be entirely imaginary or copied from reality with varying degrees of accuracy, expression or abstraction. Come; view the painting and photography of nine Ohio artists who each have a unique view of their wonderful world and the beauty they are revealing to you, the viewer. We invite you to participate in discovering visual joy that you may have overlooked or forgotten in our exhibition “Our World Our Landscapes”.

A 2nd grade visit


SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Second grade students visited The Art Junction to view the landscape exhibition in October.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Second grade students are learning about landscapes in art class, so, to incorporate this lesson with their local community, they visited an art gallery.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students had the opportunity to learn about landscape art through viewing the work of local artists who have created landscapes.

Landscape art is the depiction in art of landscapes, natural scenery such as mountains, valleys, trees, rivers, and forests, and especially art where the main subject is a wide view, with its elements arranged into a coherent composition.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

In other works landscape backgrounds for figures can still form an important part of the work. Sky is almost always included in the view, and weather is often an element of the composition.

Landscape photography shows spaces within the world, sometimes vast and unending, but other times microscopic. Landscape photographs typically capture the presence of nature but can also focus on man-made features or disturbances of landscapes.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students had a great opportunity to see many types of landscapes from their local environment and experience what it’s like to visit an art gallery.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students enjoyed their visit and learning about art outside of the school building.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

It’s important for students to learn that art is not just a subject in school but a pursuit that can be followed over a lifetime.

The Art Junction’s Landscape exhibit was a great learning experience for the second grade students to learn about landscapes and to see how artists create and exhibit them.
