Mosse’s work, as well as the work of Edward Burtynsky, is on view through Jan. 8. “Ravaged Sublime” presents nearly 30 monumental landscape photographs by the two internationally acclaimed artists.

Mosse has exhibited internationally, and his work is part of many public collections, including the Portland Art Museum; the Martin Margulies Collection in Miami; the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston; the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago; and the Nelson Atkins Museum in Kansas City.
