Gallery Gathering: Robert Seldon Duncanson’s Heart of the Andes and Jerry Kearns’ Right of Way, 1875-1922

October 3 @ 5:30 pm - 6:00 pm

During this Gallery Gathering, immerse yourself in two dramatic American landscapes rendered by Robert Seldon Duncanson and Jerry Kearns. Their respective paintings, Heart of the Andes (1871) and Right of Way, 1875-1922 (1992), are presented together in the exhibition Legendary: New Perspectives on the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts Collection. Participants will examine the two paintings in conversation with one another. How did these two artists imagine the physical landscape of America, as well as its human inhabitants, in large-scale paintings created more than a century apart?
