On view at the UGA College of Environment and Design’s Circle Gallery, a space dedicated to visual art demonstrating the program’s interdisciplinary interests in landscape architecture, historic preservation and design, “The Art of Conservation: Paintings by Philip Juras” is a retrospective that features over 50 photorealistic works exploring intact natural landscapes. Set primarily in the Southeast, the images reflect the artist’s various projects on prescribed fire, tall grass prairie, Little St. Simons Island and naturalist William Bartram’s trail. The opening reception and lecture is part of UGA’s semester-long celebration of Earth Day’s 50th anniversary, and the exhibition will remain on view through Apr. 30.
