The art of landscape is by definition poetic and symbolical. We respond to pictures of field and forest, mountain and sea because the varied moods of nature somehow seem to echo our innermost thoughts and feelings. Landscape as metaphor is a recurring motif in Terra Incognito/Terra Cognito, an exhibition of recent works by painter Ruth Pettus and photographer Michela Caudill at the College of Notre Dame of Maryland. Pettus' atmospheric ink drawings and Caudill's spare, black-and-white photographs are mounted on opposing walls, where they activate a subtle visual dialog between the two media.
