American Art Collector - - Contents -

The in­au­gu­ral bi­en­nial series New Eng­land Now, at Shel­burne Mu­seum in Ver­mont, fea­tures art­work that de­picts the evolv­ing North­east­ern land­scape and chal­lenges stereo­typ­i­cal no­tions of it be­ing “stag­nant and quaint.” On view from Septem­ber 15 to Jan­uary 13, the ex­hi­bi­tion will “ex­plore the strik­ing hu­man in­ter­ven­tions of hous­ing, fac­to­ries and high­ways” in large to mon­u­men­tal sized paint­ings and pho­tographs. Among the pieces in the show, cu­rated by Shel­burne Mu­seum direc­tor Tom De­nen­berg and as­sis­tant cu­ra­tor Carolyn Bauer, is Peter Lyons’ SNE 48010.

Peter Lyons, SNE 48010, oil on can­vas, 36 x 60". Cour­tesy the artist.
