In Transcending Nature: Paintings by Eric Aho, the artist responds to the world around him and re-interprets the artistic traditions of landscape subjects and abstract painting. The Currier will be the first American museum to present a survey exhibition of Aho’s work, opening June 2 and on view through September 9. The exhibition features paintings by the Vermont-based artist whose earlier works include dramatic, plein-air paintings of landscapes influenced by such artists as Claude Monet, Paul Cezanne, John Constable and Frederic Church. His most recent paintings are abstract monumental compositions – some as large as eight feet by nine feet.

The Currier Museum of Art is located at 150 Ash Street, Manchester, NH. For more information, visit www.currier.org or call 603.669.6144 x108.
