Art Reception – The Light You Cannot See: Infrared Photography by Betsey Henkels

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.

Saturday, September 28, 9:30am–12:30pm
[Arnold Arboretum, Hunnewell Building]

 

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.

Opening Reception – Drawn to Paint: Paintings of Arboretum Trees by Paul Olson

Opening Reception Saturday, May 18, 1:00-3:00pm

Exhibit runs May 10 – July 21, 2019

Location: Hunnewell Building

Artist, Paul Olson, has been discovering the nuances of the Arnold Arboretum's collections since he first passed through its gates in 2011. A landscape painter for decades, Olson explores the grounds with sketchbook in hand, typically in the early morning hours. His goal is to be unencumbered by any agenda and open to what the light of the day presents. In 2012, he had an exhibition at the Arnold Arboretum titled "Drawn to Woods." The expressive ink drawings in that show were all completed en plein air - on-site in the open air.
