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 or call 603.669.6144 x108.
