Emergent Landscapes Exhibit at Brahm
August 24, 2021 @ 11:00 am - January 1, 2022 @ 5:00 pmFree
Presented in the Rankin West Gallery.
Emergent Landscapes: Mountains, Music, & Improvisation in the Paintings of Abie Harris.
Abie Harris paints the mountains—he also paints the equally dynamic landscape of Bluegrass music. He is often doing both of these things at the same time. Rooted in Harris’s iterative approach to painting, the pictures in Emergent Landscapes arise from repetitive close study—of the vistas surrounding his family’s 19th-century home in the town of Blowing Rock and of the vernacular music traditions that aurally describe the region.
Open August 24th, 2021 – January 1, 2022. Check Museum hours.
