The exploration of urban versus rural environments is the focus of an upcoming exhibit at the Fine Art Museum at Western Carolina University.
“Rough and Tumble: Landscapes and Cityscapes” runs through Friday, Aug. 5. The exhibit, comprising pieces in WCU’s permanent collection, features works in a variety of media that depict the natural and unnatural. Artists include Fumio Fujita, Quita Brodhead, Richard Florsheim, Martha Armstrong, Louis Finkelstein and more.
“This exhibit celebrates a dichotomy that we all experience,” said Denise Drury, interim director of WCU’s Fine Art Museum. “One might say you can’t be in two places at once, but you will get a taste of both urban and rural at this exhibition.”
