Plains Art Museum recently opened an exhibition of three of the region’s most accomplished landscape photographers: Stuart Klipper, Wayne Gudmundson, and Drake Hokanson. The centerpiece of the exhibition, titled “On Place: Three Views of the Land,” is a series of collaborative photo shoots of the Mississippi, Minnesota and Red Rivers between the three artists.
In the age of ubiquitous capturing and sharing of digital photography, a few master photographers in our region are leading the way for the appreciation of the art and the craft of creating truly great landscape photographs. Klipper, Hokanson, and Gudmunson have a combined 140 years of experience and are represented in some of the most prestigious art collections in the world. They are also friends, and their collaborative photo shoots of the Mississippi, Minnesota, and Red Rivers form the centerpiece of their exhibition. These works encourage viewers to consider the variation of each photographer’s perspective as well as our individual experiences.
Along with the exhibition, the Museum will be hosting a photography excursion with Gudmundson on Saturday, September 22nd at 1:30 pm. This program is $24 for Museum Members and $30 for nonmembers. The Museum is also hosting a free discussion with the artists, facilitated by Museum Director, Andrew Maus, on November 8th at 6 pm.
