Women Reframe American Landscape: Susie Barstow & Her Circle / Contemporary Practices
Women Reframe American Landscape: Susie Barstow & Her Circle / Contemporary Practices is a two-part historic and contemporary exhibition illuminating the artistic contributions and perspectives of women, on view at the Thomas Cole National Historic Site from May 6–October 29, 2023. The project reinserts the accomplished 19th-century American artist Susie Barstow (1836-1923) into the history of the Hudson River School of landscape painting and presents work by contemporary artists who expand and challenge how we think about “land” and “landscape” today. It is the first retrospective of Barstow’s magnificent paintings, despite successfully exhibiting and selling her work during her lifetime. The presentation includes additional artworks by artists in her circle: Julie Hart Beers, Fidelia Bridges, Charlotte Buell Coman, Eliza Greatorex, Mary Josephine Walters, and Laura Woodward. The internationally acclaimed contemporary artists include: Teresita Fernández, Guerrilla Girls, Marie Lorenz, Tanya Marcuse, Mary Mattingly, Ebony G. Patterson, Anna Plesset, Jean Shin, Wendy Red Star, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, Cecilia Vicuña, Kay WalkingStick, and Saya Woolfalk.
