JAMESTOWN – The Roger Tory Peterson Institute (RTPI) will open its newest exhibit – National Parks and Beyond: A Solo Exhibition by Thomas Annear today, with an opening reception on Friday, June 26th from 7:00 to 9:00 pm.
The exhibit is comprised of more than fifty landscapes painted on location in the national parks and takes viewers on a quintessential American journey—a journey of discovery, wonder, and contemplation that begins and ends with our national parks.
Originally from Alexandria, Virginia, Annear has lived and worked as an artist in a variety of places before moving to Fredonia, New York in 2000.
Annear will also teach two classes at RTPI during the show and registration is strongly recommended. For more information about the exhibit and associated classes please visit www.ThomasAnnear.com, www.rtpi.org or call 665-2473.
