A handsome exhibition of Western landscapes boasts museum-quality artists like Chmiel, Lipking, and Solliday.

The paintings on view picture majestic, striated crags and open expanses of land and sky found in the states that meet at the Four Corners: Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Utah. Vermilion Cliffs National Monument in northern Arizona, immediately south of its border with Utah, provides further inspiration for the paintings on display. The remote area of Vermilion Cliffs features sheer escarpments of limestone, sandstone, siltstone, and shale, providing a unique aesthetic experience and prime material for Western landscape painters.

With their quality of light and color, the paintings on view in “Vermilion Cliffs & The Four Corners” suitably honor the natural beauty of these regions.
“Vermilion Cliffs & The Four Corners” opens August 9, with a reception from 6-8:30 p.m. To learn more, visit Maxwell Alexander Gallery online.
