Saturday, February 10, 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm – Close and Closer: Photographs of the Arnold Arboretum by James Reis


Like Boston, the Arnold Arboretum is a diverse tapestry that comes together and creates a whole. Walkways flow from side roads to manicured trails to hidden paths revealing secret glades. If the visitor is not in a rush, the Arboretum offers enchanting micro environments that invite even closer inspection. Join photographer James Reis on his journey through the Arboretum by way of images, both unique and close up, in this new exhibition in the Hunnewell Building of the Arnold Arboretum. The opening reception takes place Saturday, February 10 from 1:30 – 3:30 (snow date February 17), and a walk and talk with the artist is scheduled for Sunday, April 29 from 2 – 3 pm. The exhibit will be open through May 6.

“No two days are the same,” says Reis “between the angle of the sun, the weather, and the many spots where we become delightfully stuck. While my lens is a frail approximation of eye and heart, it pulls me out the door and into the delicate realms of plant, fungi, insect, and seed.”–close and then closer.
