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.

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.
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.
