Landscapes are a beloved genre open to all kinds of interpretations and individual styles. "Drawn From Nature" at Allyn Gallup Contemporary Art, 1288 N Palm Ave., Sarasota, gives viewers a lot of variety in presenting work by nine artists. Compare Jean Blackburn's treatment of water as both gorgeously reflective and transparent, Michele Harvey's opaque meadow mist overtaking trees, and Heidi Edwards' abstract-leaning, improbably yellow marsh, shown here, all landscapes but so different in technique and intent. Also in the exhibition are Deborah Brown, Joyce Ely-Walker, Nancy Hellebrand, Susan Klein, Andrew Kuziak and William Nichols. "Drawn From Nature" continues through Oct. 25. Hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Free. allyngallup.com or (941) 366-2454.
