Sky Above Earth Below: Tradition and Transformation in Landscape An exhibition on the genre of landscape featuring its foundation in the Picturesque and Romantic movements and some of its subsequent redefinitions in the Modern and Post-Modern periods.

Among nineteenth-century paintings selected from the High Point University Permanent Collection on view are those by Gottlieb Daniel Paul Weber, George W. Johnstone, and Edward Charles Williams. The Weatherspoon Art Museum of the University of North Carolina Greensboro is lending works including artists Ben Norris, Gertrand Brausewetter, Francis Speight, and Jim Dine. Private collectors and artists are also lending works.

The extensive range of creative involvement with landscape is well represented though a wide range of media, movements, and artistic expressions. Richard Gantt is the guest curator for this exhibition.
