Wild Spaces, Open Seasons: Hunting and Fishing in American Art


Huntsman and Dogs by Winslow Homer
Wild Spaces, Open Seasons: Hunting and Fishing in American Art celebrates artists’ captivation with hunting and fishing. The exhibition encompasses a wide variety of portraits, landscapes, still lifes, and genre scenes, including iconic works by Thomas Cole, Thomas Eakins, Winslow Homer, Alfred Jacob Miller, and Arthur Fitzwilliam Tait. These representations of hunting and fishing do more than merely illustrate subsistence or diverting pastimes, they connect a dynamic and developing American nation to its past and its future.
The exhibition runs from June 3 – August 27, 2017 at the Shelburne Museum, 6000 Shelburne Road, Shelburne, VT 05482.
