Light Grey Art Lab’s newest exhibition showcases several pieces that celebrate the concepts of spring, renewal, botany, forests, and our relationship with the natural world. 

Arboretum: An Exhibition about Botany Genetics, Enchanted Forests, and Designed Garden Spaces features original work by seventy creatives from around the world, including illustrations, small drawings, plein air paintings, and expressive botanical images. 

The importance of trees goes way beyond their mythology. The rich ecosystems within old growth forests are expansively diverse and complex. Woodlands provide infinite habitats for creatures, and the forest floor supports highways of connective fungal networks that transport energy, nutrients, and information. In the forest, we find elements that house the fundamental basis for new medicines, natural chemicals, unique food sources, seeds, and species found nowhere else on earth.
