Liz Donadio
On Site

November 2–December 23, 2021

Since the summer of 2019, Baltimore photographer Liz Donadio has been working at the Arboretum as an artist-in-residence, creating a visual study of its ecology and landscape, over time and throughout the changing seasons. Her show, On Site, explores the ways that alternative and camera-less processes can be combined with digital techniques to create multifaceted images of leaves, butterfly wings, and a host of natural materials. Saturated with rich, subtle colors and delicately nuanced details, these images are unpredictable and mysterious, much like the natural world itself. There will be a reception to meet the artist on Saturday, November 13 from 3 to 5 p.m.
