Reflections on a Southern Summer

During the languid, gauzy days of summer in the South, leisure is a time-honored tradition––and an art in and of itself. When the heat rises, beachcombers rush the coastal waves, generations of fishers cast hope-laden hooks into mountain waters, and the shade of sprawling live oaks offers welcome respite. Charged by the season’s lengthening light, verdant landscapes, and recreational offerings from summit to shoreline, artists have created lasting impressions of this region’s summers for centuries. On view June 9 – September 4, 2021, Reflections on a Southern Summer honors the abiding allure that the South holds as both a destination and a homeplace.
