Pamela R. Tarbell of Concord will be exhibiting 15 paintings at the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University.

The “Marsh Kaleidoscope Series,” is a vibrant artistic response to the multi-layered movement of life above, on, and under the water, highlighting the importance of protecting our environment and our wetlands.

The wetlands are key to our entire environment, as they clean and filter the water, while provides homes for numerous animals, birds, amphibians and insects. The wet lands are visually exciting to walk around with their multi layers of growth, creating patterns of reflecting leaves or bushes in every water spot, inspiring me with my love of color and design.

The exhibit also includes a group of five paintings inspired by an autumn afternoon spent exploring the arboretum.

Tarbell is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, a United States Art Embassy Artist, a juried member of the National Association of Women Artists, and a national exhibiting artist. Her complex compositions resonate with color, light, and patterns inspired by nature.

The Arnold Arboretum in Boston was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted with 281 acres of outstanding plants and trees.
