The aim of the lecture is to explore the questions; what does landscape painting mean in 2013? Is landscape painting out-moded or does it have larger, even heroic possibilities?

The lecture is in conjunction with two exhibitions by the artist, River/Mountain/Sea at the Monterey Museum of Art and landscape studies at Winfield Gallery.
