I lecture, write and educate on the History of American Landscape Painting: for booking email

The Art of Landscape is a discussion of the interdependency of people, place and paint. Joan presents with a power point of landscape paintings and she weaves a story around people, landscape and art.
Land stewardship has been practiced by Indigenous peoples for centuries and John Muir liked to say that every one thing is "hitched" to another. George Perkins Marsh's 1864 book titled, "Man and Nature," demonstrated that deforestation leads to climate change. People and landscapes are under constant change. Art brings hope and climate and landscape resilient stories.
Join the discussion.
