Centre-St-Gate_KRubadoInspired 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.

This exhibition is on view in the Hunnewell Building Lecture Hall at 125 Arborway, Jamaica Plain. The Lecture Hall is often used for meetings and classes. Please call 617.384.5209 for exhibition availability, and refer to Hunnewell Visitor Center hours.
