Capturing the Light: San Diego Landscape Painters

September 14, 2001 – March 03, 2002

Landscape painting is more than just an objective record of physical facts. It also explores a subjective relationship between man and nature, and as such reveals as much about the artist and viewer as subject matter.

Each artist approached the concept of landscape differently. The images and the impressions they invoke are the spring-board by which we can examine our personal relationship to San Diego, its land, and the change inherent with the passage of time.

Some may think the landscape never changes. Nothing is farther from the truth; the landscape is always in flux. These paintings form a record of our region, documenting a particular moment in time.
