A Walk in the Arboretum with Painters for a Purpose: Opening Reception
June 11, 2011
Experience a walk along the paths of the Arboretum through the eyes of “Painters for a Purpose,” a group of South Shore pastel artists. The medium of pastel is particularly suited for rendering intense colors and contrasting textures. With the Arboretum as a magnificent muse, these artists explore the landscape in all seasons, beautifully capturing changes in nature and light. Painters for a Purpose donates 30% of the sales from each exhibit to nonprofit organizations. This show will benefit the Elizabeth Stone House, a Jamaica Plain institution that helps women and families rebuild their lives after experiencing domestic violence, mental illness, substance abuse, and other trauma.
