Photographer Amy Ragus specializes in multiple frame images of New England landscapes—digital photocollages. Before and during the pandemic, Ragus spent time in the Arboretum, particularly interested in its role as a public space, its open access to everyone. Her work captures the discoveries she found just off a road or path, as well as the people who share this space and enjoy nature throughout the seasons. Explore her sensitive, creative depictions of walks in the Arboretum in this virtual exhibition.
The Centre for Faith, Art, and Justice, the non-profit organization sponsored and housed by First Baptist Church in Jamaica Plain, will be hosting a series of three outdoor events on April 10, April 17, and April 24 at 7pm. The purpose of these events is to highlight our Capital Campaign to finish the rebuild of our upstairs sanctuary/community space which was originally destroyed when our building burned down in 2005. The events will highlight our “Resurgence” projection show created by MASARY which will be shown across the front of our building every night from 7pm to 10pm from now until the first week of May. In addition, the events will feature live music and performances from local artists, speeches from community leaders and activists, as well as more information on the work the Centre does in our community and the work we hope to do in the future with our newly renovated space.
"Painting Edo" at the Arnold Arboretum is a collaboration between the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University and the Harvard Art Museums, inspired by the exhibition "Painting Edo: Japanese Art from the Feinberg Collection." Observing artworks from the exhibition alongside the living collections of the Arnold Arboretum, we invite you to marvel at the remarkable accuracy and spirit with which artists of the Edo period (1615–1868) rendered their botanical subjects. In this online talk, curator Rachel Saunders and William (Ned) Friedman of the Arnold Arboretum, will discuss the Japanese black pine (黒松 kuromatsu), or Pinus thunbergii. After Rachel takes a close look at a dynamic painted specimen by Itō Jakuchū 伊藤若冲 (1716–1800) in the Feinberg Collection, Ned will bring viewers into the landscape of the Arnold Arboretum to learn about the live specimen’s unique characteristics. Led by:
Rachel Saunders, Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Curator of Asian Art, Harvard Art Museums
William (Ned) Friedman, Director of the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University

Join our exhibiting artist, Betsey Henkels, for a reception in the Hunnewell Lecture Hall on Saturday, October 26, 1:00-3:00pm. Exhibit runs October 25, 2019 – February 2, 2020
Betsey Henkels uses the camera to explore the world in two ways–first by noticing and appreciating objects that she might otherwise overlook, and second, by transforming ordinary scenes into prints that are compelling and unexpected. Henkels spent many hours in the Arboretum, photographing tree canopies, bark, and above ground roots in infrared. Infrared is magical and mysterious. The photographer shoots images without knowing exactly what will show up in the print.
Join us as we rock out to the sounds of Oompa, Zili Misik, JahRiffe & Jah-N-I Roots Movement, The Group Activity, and dance in the streets with Metamovements Latin Dance Company. This event is free and open to our entire community. Indoors in the Brewery complex, local artists affiliated with City Life/Vida Urbana will display and sell hand-died textiles and paintings as part of JP Open Studios. Bring your friends and neighbors! Are you tired of neighbors, friends and family getting displaced from their homes and communities?

What will motivate you to do more about the climate crisis? Perhaps something fun and visible? What is preventing you from acting? Maybe fear, and lack of belief that your actions matter? Susan Israel founded Climate Creatives to use art and design that engages people in change because data alone doesn’t do it: behavioral change begins with an emotional commitment.

In literature, a vignette is a short scene that captures a single moment or a defining detail about a character, idea, or other element of the story. Vignettes are little sections of a much bigger work. Vignettes are important because they can illuminate significant information, create depth of character, or provide insight into the larger picture. In this show, established Boston artists Terry Boutelle and Nancy Marks pair their individual works of art to tell a dynamic visual story. Although the abstract works of each artist are different in their content, there is a resonance between the works involving color, form, line, and mood. Rather than exhibiting each artist’s work separately, they exploited this resonance by intermixing their paintings in small configurations that they hope will inspire viewers to engage more fully in the artwork. In considering what resonates within each “vignette,” perhaps the viewer will develop a deeper understanding of each artist’s interpretation of a singular moment or collective experience.
