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”.

Winter landscapes


SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The Wednesday afternoon art classes created mixed-medium landscapes this week.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

We began with creating a horizon line and using watercolors for our sky.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The next step was cutting out trees with scissors and construction paper.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This required a lot of focus as the scissors became a tool for drawing the trees through the cutting process.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Next was gluing the trees to the landscape.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The final step was to add shadow to the trees with watercolor paint.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Everyone enjoyed learning to mix mediums to create a wonderful winter landscape.

This month, Amanda Kiplinger, local photographer from Polk, Ohio, will be speaking to the group as she presents her photographic work Buckeye Landscapes at the Art Junction. Amanda will share her passion and interest in photography, which began when she picked up her first camera at the age of twelve. Amanda states in her biography: “Growing up on a dairy farm in Ashland County gave me many opportunities to photograph landscapes, my favorite subject. While other teenagers were busy taking pictures of their friends making goofy faces, I was trying to imitate my favorite landscape photographer, Ansel Adams. Several years later I decided to make my love of photography into a profession.”
