Dispersal: Photographs by Anna Laurent
October 26, 2013–January 26, 2014
Opening Reception and Artist’s Talk: Saturday, October 26, 1–3
Seed pods are incredible vessels, protecting seeds as they develop and assisting with their dispersal. Photographer Anna Laurent explores the evolution of different forms to fulfill these common functions. Individually, each photograph is a fine art portrait of a unique botanic specimen; as a series, the collection becomes a visual and scientific inquiry into the remarkable diversity of botanic design. The project began in urban Southern California and has extended to the rain forests of Hawaii, the deserts of northern Iraq, and public gardens throughout the United States, including the Arnold Arboretum.
Peters Hill 360: Photographs by Meri Bond
February 8, 2014–May 24, 2014
Opening Reception: February 8, 2014, 1–3
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.
