Searching for the Southern Frontier

Landscapes Inspired by Bartram’s Travels

The Citadel - Duckett Auditorium 101

2011juras-by-dorinda-dallmeyer-1118x1118In the Travels, William Bartram paints an eloquent picture of the wilderness landscape of the eighteenth century South. The “sublime scenes of primitive nature” he encountered on his four year journey can be difficult to imagine today. Inspired by Bartram, landscape painter Philip Juras will offer a vision of the southern frontier as Bartram would have experienced it during his famed travels.
juras-at-moodyJuras will describe how he combines direct field observation with historical, scientific, and natural history research to depict, and in some cases reimagine, landscapes as they appeared before European settlement. His paintings recreate these landscapes for contemporary viewers in much the same way that nineteenth-century American landscape painters like Albert Bierstadt and Thomas Moran introduced the western frontier to the imagination of eastern audiences.
