Accompanying a year-long exhibition at the University of Kentucky Art Museum, A Place Not Forgotten explores the distinctiveness of Southern landscape painting from the early nineteenth century through the 1940s. More than twenty-five color reproductions are accompanied by essays on southern art and culture by William W. Freehling, Singletary Professor of Humanities at the University of Kentucky; Jessie Poesch, professor emerita of art history at Tulane University; and J. Richard Gruber, director of the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans. Brief commentaries from Wendell Berry, Guy Davenport, John Egerton, James Baker Hall, Sally Mann, Bobbie Ann Mason, Ed McClanahan, Robert Morgan, Gurney Norman, Chris Offutt, Estill Curtis Pennington, and Sarah Tate on the nature of the southern landscape and its impact on literature and experience expand the project beyond that of a mere exhibition catalog."
