“Pastorals, Landscapes, and Arcadian Vision,” on view this summer at the Vanderbilt University Fine Arts Gallery, will close Friday, September 9. The exhibit explores how artists for centuries have rendered nature in a tranquil, idyllic form. Juxtaposed with poetry throughout the gallery, more than 50 paintings and works on paper from England, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and the United States dating from the seventeenth to the early twentieth centuries will capture and hold the viewer’s artistic imagination.
Free and open to the public, the gallery is on the second floor of Cohen Memorial Hall, located at 1220 21st Avenue South on the Peabody College campus. Gallery hours this week are Tuesday through Friday, noon- 4 pm. For more information, visit the gallery’s website or call 615-322-0605.
