The Spectacular Skies exhibition is on display through July 23, 2017, at the Kay Daugherty Gallery in the Murray Arts Building.

The sight of the sky stirs within us a sense of wonder and a desire to dream. From one moment to the next, our perception of the sky is changing. In the course of a day, the shifting sky can transform from severe to serene. Vicious storms become vibrant vistas in mere minutes. Blushing sunsets give way to tranquil starlight and the mysterious moon. Spectacular Skies celebrates artwork that captures the vast expanses of the celestial sphere. Works explore the sky, stars, clouds, and atmospheric phenomena that evoke a thoughtful, expressive, and visually monumental presence.
