SAN DIEGO, CA.- The San Diego Museum of Art invites visitors to view three exciting new exhibitions opening in February featuring significant regional, national, and international art. Running through April 27, 2008, Kindred Spirits: Asher B. Durand and the American Landscape surveys over 50 paintings and engravings from famed American landscape painter Asher B. Durand. One of the founders of the Hudson River School , Durand created works that are some of the most beautiful and famous American landscape paintings of the 19th century. Visitors can learn more about the artist in an engaging lecture and poetry readings in the galleries.

In conjunction with Kindred Spirits, SDMA has organized a beautiful display of over 20 California plein-air paintings together with the Lux Art Institute. Plein Air Past and Present: A Collaboration Between SDMA and the Lux Art Institute will run concurrently with Kindred Spirits and includes key works from SDMA’s collection, as well as loans from important local collectors.

Opening later in February is Rhythms of India: The Art of Nandalal Bose (1882-1966), a major exhibition organized by SDMA in collaboration with the government of India and the National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi . Rhythms of India features close to 100 works by Nandalal Bose, the father of modern art in India and the only artist ever patronized by Mahatma Gandhi. The exhibition also marks the first time that a survey of works by Bose has been permitted to leave Asia.
