In celebration of Deming Park’s centennial
June 4 – October 7, 2021
Turman’s favorite plein air location was Deming Park in Terre Haute, which he painted through the years during different seasons and time of day to capture the differing moods of the park. In celebration of the centennial of Deming Park, the Swope Art Museum is showing Turman’s paintings of the park from the permanent collection. The similar scenes are only a few from a large series of paintings of beech trees that showcase Turman’s interest in the subtleties of light and seasonal changes in the landscape.
