Arnold Arboretum in Plein Air

Paintings by Kathy Rubado and Carol Schweigert

June 19–September 7, 2014
Reception: Saturday, June 21, 1:00–3:00pm
Lecture: Thursday, August 7, 5:00–6:00pm
Workshop: Saturday, August 16, 10:00am–Noon

Inspired by the complex natural beauty of the Arboretum, painters Kathy Rubado and Carol Schweigert explore the four seasons in its landscape. They capture snow swept vistas on Peters Hill, intimate shady paths, classic gates, and viburnum boughs dense with berries. Painting in “open air” provides a dialogue with the environment, challenging the elements for an authentic experience.
