    The Art of Wood VI: Woodturner Virtual Exhibition

    Since 2015, the Arnold Arboretum has partnered with woodturning clubs from around New England to host an exhibition of turned wood objects and art. Woodturning is unique in woodworking, in that a lathe is used, and the Arboretum has exhibited hundreds of examples of expertly-crafted works utilizing a variety of woods—often from deaccessioned Arboretum trees. Our current show, featuring pieces from Massachusetts South Shore Woodturners, is the first to be entirely virtual.

    If Winter Comes…The Promise of Each Year in the Paintings of Anthony Apesos

    New England seasons extol the virtues of each month, and winter is no exception. If Winter Comes, an online exhibition by Anthony Apesos, revels in the season through the nuance and attention he brings to his paintings. It is art that is alive and jubilant in its expression and astute in rendering the spirit of the season, capturing the Arboretum and its trees pared down to their beautiful bones.
