‘Terra Firma’

Now in his seventy-fifth year, artist Keith Jacobshagen has been setting the terms in which Midwestern landscape painting is created and discussed for several decades now.  It is therefore appropriate that Terra Firma, the exhibition on view at Gallery 1516 until June 12, begins with one of his works.

The 2003 oil on canvas” Salt Valley, Late Spring” hangs on the wall just inside the gallery’s front door, under the...
