    Location: 

    Hunnewell Building, Arnold Arboretum, 125 Arborway, Boston

    Join the Arnold Arboretum for an opening reception for their newest exhibition, The Path Taken: Photography by Lawrence Mullings.

    On any given day, Lawrence Mullings can be found exploring the paths and hidden corners of the Arboretum. While walking in the landscape to regain his health, his joy in photography was rekindled. He saw how the Arboretum was many different things to him, and to the many different people who come here from around the neighborhood and around the world. To Mullings, the Arboretum is its trees, as well as the myriad ways visitors enjoy them...

    Fri May 10 (All day) to Sun Jul 21 (All day)

    Location: 

    Hunnewell Building, Arnold Arboretum, 125 Arborway, Boston

    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 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 this new exhibition, Olson brings his on-site...

    Regina Gardner Milan spent a year of discovery at the Arboretum. Botanical jewels of each season--early larches, spring blossoms, fall acorns, autumn leaves--are captured in her exquisite paintings. Nature holds a spellbinding allure to Milan, who finds that observing nature often produces scenes of larger-than-life beauty. The Arboretum's exhibition magnifies nature's productions, fully illuminating the elegance of plant life as small as a seed pod. This show captures the wonder of the Arboretum in those...
