The Peninsula Fine Arts Center will exhibit "American Scenery: Different Views in the Hudson River School Painting" from July 12 to Oct. 18, 2015.
The exhibit features 115 paintings by the loose collective of artists working in and around the Hudson River Valley from the 1820s to the 1870s, capturing breathtaking unspoiled landscapes just before they were changed forever by the Civil War and Industrial Revolution. This exhibit is assembled from a single private collection and was first shown at the Westmoreland Museum of American Art. Learn more about the exhibit here.
