Sunday Salon: Directionality in the Art of Thomas Cole: An Ecocritical Perspect
March 3 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Join Dr. Alan C. Braddock, Ralph H. Wark Associate Professor of Art History & American Studies, on an exploration of directionality of vision and movement in the art of Thomas Cole. Cole’s work often communicates a powerful sense of place by inviting us to look in certain directions, prompting reflection about actual places in nature. Through this lens, learn how paintings such as The Oxbow are informed by his concerns about human impact on pristine wilderness.
The Sunday Salons are presented in Thomas Cole’s New Studio once a month from January through April at the Thomas Cole National Historic Site in Catskill, New York. All Salons start at 2 pm and will be followed by audience discussions. Now in its 16th year, the Sunday Salons present today’s most engaging speakers on topics relating to American landscape painting.
