Scenes from the Southern Frontier
October 21 – December 31, 2011

The Macon Museum of Arts and Sciences
Macon, Georgia

In 1791, William Bartram published the Travels, an account of his epic journey through the Southeast. His writing captured the landscapes and ecology of colonial America. Inspired by Bartram, Philip Juras’s landscape paintings offer a way for modern viewers to travel back in time and enjoy those pristine vistas. This exhibition features views of the mountains, woodlands, and waterways of the South before they were altered forever by population and development.

This exhibit will feature 13 paintings from Philip's exhibit The Southern Frontier shown at the Telfair and Morris museums earlier this year, pluse two new paintings.

The exhibit will be featured during the biennial meeting of the Bartram Trail Conference, being held in Macon October 21-23. View the conference program and registration at bartrail.org. The public is invited to attend.
