Take a look at these fall exhibitions with two looks at landscapes.
The McMullen Museum of Art at Boston College is breaking ground on its fall exhibitions with two looks at landscapes. First up, Nature’s Mirror: Reality and Symbol in Belgian Landscape chronologically traces the birth of the art form from the Middle Ages through the early 20th century with the help of professor Jeffrey Howe. He’ll be on hand for a walk through the Daley Family Gallery on Sept. 24 to chat about the 120 rarely seen works from the likes of Antwerp printmaker Hieronymus Cock, School of Tervuren realists and symbolist painter Léon Spilliaert (whose Trunks of Beech Trees in Spring, 1945 is seen above). Elsewhere, professor Alston Conley paints the Maine and Massachusetts skies with collage techniques a la Matisse. Dial into these landlines at the McMullen Museum, where Nature’s Mirror and New England Sky are on display through Dec. 10. / Sarah Hagman

Aug. 11 brings a bout for the ages when the Museum of Fine Arts unveils Showdown! Kuniyoshi vs. Kunisada. The new exhibit pits two 19th-century Japanese woodblock artists—both students of the ukiyo-e print powerhouse Utagawa school—against each other, displaying 100 works in color-coded frames: black ash for Kuniyoshi, cherry for Kunisada (whose 1820s print The In-demand Type is pictured here). See how each master tackled the same subject matter, from cheeky theater actor portraits to epic sumo battle renderings, in the Lois B. and Michael K. Torf Gallery, where the rivals go head-to-head through Dec. 10. / Sarah Hagman

Nineties kids rejoice
Everyone’s favorite longhaired band of brothers has returned with sleeker ’dos and a matured sound that brings them into the 21st century. Hanson’s 25th anniversary tour lands in Boston shortly after the band’s release of their Middle of Everywhere: The Greatest Hits compilation album. The group—which was first formed in 1992 by tween heartthrob brothers Isaac, Taylor and Zac—is best known for their infuriatingly catchy 1997 single “Mmmbop.” Fast-forward to today, this group of 30-something dads has 12 children between them, all while continuing to tour and produce music over the past two decades. Nostalgia and new beginnings come together during this trio’s world tour that stops at House of Blues on Oct. 1. / Julia Aparicio

Ever essential water serves as the subject in each painter’s project, yet the collections’ visual manifestations have opposite tendencies and address the many forms in which this element can actualize. LeBourgeois continues her project of painting controlled and contemplative horizons, inspired by water’s subtle albeit ever-changing state, while Muñoz captures its volatile, unpredictable nature inherent within.
Join us for the opening and to meet the artists First Friday, October, 6 – 8 PM
