Trees: Intimate Portraits

paperbark-maple-weigel

October 28, 2016-February 5, 2017

Scars, burls, peeling bark, lichen, insect and animal markings—come explore the intimate, fascinating, up close world of tree bark as seen through the lens and sensibilities of photographer Jennifer Weigel. This Arboretum exhibition of Weigel’s photographic series, illuminates the often overlooked beauty found in the bark of trees and shrubs. As an artist, Weigel is particularly drawn to details in nature and the unique individuality of each tree. Her images are examinations of each plant’s history through the beauty, as well as the bruises, of its outer surfaces.

Jennifer Weigel has a BFA in Studio Arts from Webster University in St. Louis and has participated in a wide variety and number of solo, group, and small format exhibitions. In April of 2017, the Trees: Intimate Portraits show will travel to the Grand Opera House in Wilmington, DE.

See an informative article on this exhibition in local Boston news and in the Providence Journal.

Art shows and walks are free and open to the public.
