The images in Peters Hill 360 reveal Meri Bond’s deep relationship to the Peters Hill landscape. Drawn to art after a career in business, Bond has devoted countless hours to photographing the Arboretum. In this show, containing personal favorites selected from thousands of images, individual trees become time travelers and views take on new dimensions with the passage of time. Revisiting the same trees again and again, Bond explores a fascination with light and shadow through the full circle of seasons.
