‘Elemental ‘Scapes’

  • Courtesy

From the Bronze Age to the dawn of photography and beyond, artistic approaches to landscapes have unsurprisingly evolved right along with the landscapes themselves. Inevitably falling out of fashion countless times since 1500 BCE (when the earliest pure landscapes appeared in Minoan Greece in the form of frescoes), the ever-present genre gets a contemporary spin in UTSA’s “Elemental ‘Scapes,” a group show exploring “the many ways we view and reconsider the built and elemental fixtures of the landscapes of our everyday lives.”

Co-curated by Scott A. Sherer and Marissa Del Toro, the exhibition runs the gamut from architecturally inspired paintings (Sarah Frantz) to intricate line drawings (Bethany Johnson) and time-based digital videos (Benjamin McVey). Free, 6-8pm, UTSA Art Gallery, One UTSA Circle, (210) 458-4352,
