February 19 - March 25
Constructing the Past
an exhibit of landscapes by John Cleaveland curated by Dr. Michael Kemling
Cleaveland received his BFA degree from UGA and held a graduate assistantship in the Studies Abroad program in Cortona, Italy. He has exhibited his work at the Albany Museum of Art, University of Georgia, Madison Cultural Center, and the Lyndon House Art Center. His paintings are part of the collections of the Morris Museum of Art, 3-M Company, Bessemer Trust, and the Alabama Power Company.
This exhibition of John Cleaveland's paintings examines the conceit that the landscape is our greatest steward of the past. Cleaveland not only records his environment, but, also, constructs and reconstructs the past by often placing time-worn buildings within sprawling vistas of the South.
