    Inspired by Nature: Five Printmakers at the Arnold Arboretum

    For five printmakers, sketching trips to the Arnold Arboretum solidified what they already had in common—the many ways that nature and plant life informs their art. Although their media covers a wide range of print techniques, and each artist has a unique approach to their art, all are attracted to the natural world, often trees. Digital exhibition on view through August 9.

    Urban Ponds: Essential Ecosystems for the Enjoyment and Discovery of Nature – Photography by Bruce Wilson

    This rich and exciting online exhibition, by photographer Bruce Wilson, brings the aesthetic and elemental properties of water, within the circumscribed arena of the city, to the Arnold Arboretum. Three ponds in the Bradley Rosaceous Collection landscape, as well as one in Newton, are alive with fauna and flora. Each beckons visitors who relish a connection to nature and water in an urban community. Each is a focal point for Wilson, becoming a work of art we all can savor. On display through October 31.
