The Lay of the Land

Arlington Museum of Art’s latest exhibit asks a simple question: Where are we? It’s a question that artists have continually asked themselves as they turn to the territory around them or travel to faraway locations in search of subjects for their art. From Caspar David Friedrich’s stark, awe-inspiring winter scenes to Ansel Adams’ photos of the American West to the landscapes that Corot saw only in his mind, artists have used vistas to define themselves in relation to nature and the world.

A Sense of Place gathers works in various media by seven artists. Daniel Blagg’s cityscapes will be familiar to Fort Worth gallery habitués, but the artists around him should give a fresh perspective on him. Lordy Rodriguez’s prints and paintings attempt to show places he has traveled to from an aerial perspective. Suzanne Paquette’s works re-create imaginary landscapes on other planets, while Ann Stautberg’s photographs of coastal areas try to capture the culture in those areas. Guy Hundere uses the medium of video shot from a moving car to depict places that try to retain their essential character in a world of constant change. By taking in locations, and occasionally dislocation, AMA’s exhibit helps us take the long view.

A Sense of Place runs Apr 18-Jun 14 at Arlington Museum of Art, 201 W Main St, Arlington. Free. 817-275-4600.
