The Circle Gallery at the College of Environment and Design will present A Genius for Place: American Landscapes of the Country Place Era, an exhibit featuring the photographs of Carol Betsch.
A reception, which is free and open to the public, will take place March 17 from 4:30-6 p.m. in the gallery at 285 S. Jackson St. The exhibit will run through April 28.
In A Genius for Place, Betsch interprets some of the most iconic designed landscapes of the Country Place Era in early 20th century America, including Dumbarton Oaks (designed by Beatrix Farrand) in Washington, D.C., and Naumkeag (designed by Fletcher Steele) in Stockbridge, Massachussetts. These photographs were taken for the book of the same name by Robin Karson published by the Library of American Landscape History.
The touring exhibit has come home to UGA, where it will remain in the permanent collection of the College of Environment and Design, thanks to the generous donation by LALH.
In addition to her work as a photographer, Betsch has served as managing editor of the University of Massachusetts Press. Her photographs have appeared in numerous books and gallery exhibits.
