Rolling hills and choppy waters are shown side-by-side in the museum’s Parker Gallery, reflecting on the delicate balance of nature.

The exhibition includes artists Walter Lofthouse Dean, Aldro Thompson Hibbard, William Preston Phelps, Mary Earl Wood, Arthur Spear, and many more.


With many works exhibited for the first time, these paintings offer a wider glimpse into the WHMA's permanent collection and the stunning art in its vault, now brought out into the light of day.
