Arts in the Middle is excited to announce the return of the VMFA on the Road Artmobile to the show for 2021. This feature is a popular attraction at the show and gives people a look into the a small part of the collections from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts is pleased to announce VMFA on the Road’s new exhibition A View from Home: Landscapes of Virginia. Each year, VMFA on the Road, an Artmobile for the 21st Century, travels across Virginia from the Eastern Shore to the mountains of the Southwest. This exhibition of paintings, photographs, woodblock prints and engravings from the museum's permanent collection explores the diversity and beauty of the Commonwealth’s natural landscape. The collection showcases artists of various styles and periods, who together record both the sublimity of unspoiled nature and the impact of human activity on the countryside.
“Besides welcoming visitors to enjoy our collections and educational programming in our Richmond campus, VMFA is committed to bringing works of art to Virginians across the Commonwealth. VMFA on the Road has done a fantastic job of doing just that,” said VMFA Director and CEO Alex Nyerges. “We are delighted to be showcasing works that highlight our own beautiful landscapes.”
This exhibition is curated by Jeffrey Allison, VMFA’s Paul Mellon Collection Educator and Manager of Statewide Programs and Exhibitions. A View from Home: Landscapes of Virginia features multiple artists such as Adele Clark, Hullihen Williams Moore, George H. Benjamin Johnson, Miwako Nishizawa and others.
