John Cleaveland's WW1 Landscapes

To mark the 100 year anniversary of the end of World War I, the Lyndon House Arts Center is proud to present WWI Landscape Paintings by John Cleaveland.

Over a three-year period, John Cleaveland traveled to France and photographed current day sites of World War I battles. Upon returning to his studio in Farmington, Georgia, the artist translated his photographs into rich oil paintings. The stunning images that result from Cleaveland’s explorations depict tranquil vistas that belie their tormented histories.

This exhibit is accompanied by a brochure featuring written works by:

R. Byron Breese, Brian DeToy and Chris McDonald

Reception: Thursday, September 13, 6:00 - 8:00 pm

On view from September 11, 2018 - November 9, 2018
