Opening: The Invented Landscape – Paintings by Nancy Sableski

February 21, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

Just as the Arnold Arboretum is an invented landscape, so are the paintings in this exhibition. While every work of art is an invention, Nancy Sableski takes this concept a step further by painting imagined landscapes that are constructed by blending multiple images taken with her cellphone. In this way she invents places that don’t exist but which clearly refer to the Arboretum. This technique allows her to examine aspects of landscape that continually capture her imagination: the interplay of powerful verticals, unpredictable diagonals, and receding horizontals.
