Norman Yates: Towards Landspace 1991

March 10 – April 7, 1991

Maltwood Art Museum and Gallery

This exhibit features works by Canadian landscape painter Norman Yates. “Landspace” is a term coined by Yates to describe his experience with and natural affinity for the openness of the Canadian prairies. Yates describes the origins of landspace:

My experience on the land gives me … a notion of space, that is a vision of an expanse of country combined with a feeling of continuous and unbroken extension in every direction – landspace.
