Newport News, VA.- The Peninsula Fine Arts Center is proud to present “The Virginia Landscape: Works on Paper”, on view at the center from July 23rd through October 2nd. This exhibition, curated in-house by Michael Preble, presents the work of eleven artists who show various approaches to the diverse Virginia landscape and its inspirations.  Says Preble, “The Virginia landscape offers an impressive range – from the mountains to the sea, from farms and woodlands to towns and cityscapes. This exhibition offers a dynamic diversity while focusing on works on paper – paintings, drawings and prints. Traditional pictorial imagery – lyrical and poetic – are included, as are works that are ‘Virginia inspired’ and in a more contemporary vein.”
