Unusual media abound in this 38 artist group show, which challenges traditional ideas about landscape with contemporary twists on the subject. There’s Phil O’Malley’s mixed media “Myers Lake,” painted on an upright tube, and Jan Martin’s “Rustic Bay,” where a landscape is achieved through a reductive process. It takes a while to accustom oneself to the carved-out surfaces of Martin’s painting, but it slowly reveals itself to be a landscape with dimensionality and depth. Yet there’s also room for more traditional landscape (or cityscape) painting such as Jane Corbin’s oil on canvas “Indianapolis Star,” which depicts a lonely newspaper dispenser on an empty street.
