Friday, October 6, 2017
Bend in the River, by Sydney Laurence. Oil on canvas. JDCM 2017.45.001.
Join us for a First Friday Acquisition Reception for Bend in the River, oil on canvas, 20”x24”, by Sydney Laurence (1865-1940). Laurence is widely regarded as Alaska’s most prominent painter. This landscape, painted in the flats near where the airport is located today, is a fine example of Laurence’s work in the Juneau area, his skill, and his dedication to plein-air painting. Bend in the River will be on view for the public through the end of October.
