Reward yourself this summer at the splendid Strecker Nelson Gallery in Manhattan, Kansas, with “Flint Hills Sublime” — an outstanding landscape exhibition featuring some of the biggest names in the genre today. Who are they?

James Borger, Cally Krallman, Michael Albrectsen, Kristin Goering, Cristine Sundquist, and Carol McCall are just a few of the names featured in “Flint Hills Sublime” — a gorgeous landscape exhibition at Strecker Nelson Gallery.
Opening on July 1 and running through September 3, the exhibition features a wide range of styles and approaches to this storied genre. “Prairie Cherry Splendor” by James Borger is a lovely highlight from the show that blends both landscape and still life. As though the viewer has stumbled upon the world’s most beautiful picnic, a table filled with cherries and a lemon sit before a stunning Midwestern landscape of rolling hills. A warm, golden light floods the scene from the left as shadows from the fruit grow long.

Cristine Sundquist’s “Golden Hour” is yet another standout from the exhibition. Sundquist’s playful and feathery brushwork contrasts sharply with the precise verisimilitude of Borger, but the overall impression of the scene is still captured masterfully.
An opening reception for the exhibition will be held at the gallery on Friday, July 1, from 5 to 8 p.m. To learn more, visit Strecker Nelson Gallery.
