Denee Barr Art News and More

"This elegant survey of more than a decade of photographs from nature is on view at the Adkins Arboretum Visitor’s Center through May 29. Strikingly beautiful in their rich velvety toning, they capture the character and seasonal richness of trees, ponds and fallen leaves from the Eastern Shore to Washington’s Kenilworth Gardens to the artist’s hometown of Columbia, Md."

Adkins Arboretum is a 400-acre native garden and preserve on Maryland’s Eastern Shore dedicated to promoting the appreciation and conservation of the region’s native plants. Four miles of paths along streams, through meadows and native plant gardens and under the shade of a rich bottomland forest attract nature lovers, gardeners, students and birders.

The Arboretum offers programs year-round in ecology, horticulture, and natural history for all ages. The site features over 600 species of native shrubs, trees, wildflowers and grasses. Explore the Adkins Arboretum website to plan your visit.

This year's Critics Residency exhibition includes the work of artists: Ken Ashton, Jessie Boyko, Dottie Campbell, Bernhard Hildebrandt, Gil Jawetz, Bonnie Kotula, Kim Manfredi, and Lynn Rybicki.

Intended to stimulate critical discourse within the region, this year-long program concludes with an exhibition of artwork selected by critic Vincent Katz during studio visits; a catalogue of critical writing by participating writers, Martin Johnson and Dylan R. Kinnett, an essay contributed by the critic; and a public forum where participants are invited to exchange ideas about contemporary art with the public.

This year’s Public Forum will take place on Saturday, May 9th at 2 pm and will be moderated by Aaron Henkin, co-creator and producer of WYPR's radio arts program, The Signal. Henkin’s news reports and features have aired nationally on programs including Morning Edition, All Things Considered, Day to Day, as well as PRI’s Studio 360 and The World. Aaron is also a regular guest host on the nationally syndicated American Public Media program, The Story. Aaron’s latest project is a weekly folk music and storytelling program called Tapestry of the Times, a show that explores the audio archives of Smithsonian Folkways Recordings.
