Emily Buchanan emerges as one of America's premier landscape artists
Cornwall’s Emily Buchanan, one of America’s premiere landscape artists, was commissioned to do a painting for the 2014 White House Christmas Card (see townvibe.com/whcard).
Most known for her plein-air paintings of New England, she has regularly been invited to participate in the Governments Arts in the Embassies program. “Working en plein air is exciting, and I don’t think I could ever achieve the same sense of serenity in a studio,” Buchanan says. The Housatonic Valley Authority used this paintings, of a farm in Great Barrington, for its auction invitation and catalog cover art.
