Gallery Conversation: Reflecting on Landscapes with Carl Smith

Early American Gallery
No Registration Required

Join us in our Early American Gallery for a discussion of Asher B. Durand’s Kindred Spirits and the broader importance of image making as a tool to encourage reflection on landscape and place. The discussion will be led by Carl Smith, associate professor of Landscape Architecture in the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design.

Carl Smith’s research focuses on anthropogenic landscape change in and around home-places, and the effects on the perceptions of place and preference. His work has been published in the Journal of Urban Design, Journal of Urbanism, International Journal of Art and Design Education, Places Journal and Landscape Research Record. He has delivered lectures on sustainability, housing, place and drawing in Europe, South America, and the US, and his drawn work has been shown in exhibitions in the US and Europe, including the Florence Art and Design Biennale.

Free, no registration required.
