Trees: Intimate Portraits
Artist Jennifer Weigel sheds light on the often overlooked details of trees in this new exhibition of photographs coming to the Hunnewell Building.
Scars, burls, peeling bark, lichen, insect and animal markings—come explore the intimate, fascinating, up close world of tree bark as seen through the lens and sensibilities of photographer Jennifer Weigel. This Arboretum exhibition of Weigel’s photographic series, illuminates the often overlooked beauty found in the bark of trees and shrubs. As an artist, Weigel is particularly drawn to details in nature and the unique individuality of each tree. Through her images, she portrays each plant’s history within the beauty, as well as the bruises, of its outer surfaces.
Jennifer Weigel has a BFA in Studio Arts from Webster University in St. Louis, and has participated in a wide variety and number of solo, group, and small format exhibitions. In April of 2017, the Arboretum show, Trees: Intimate Portraits will travel to the Grand Opera House in Wilmington, DE.
