Enjoy eclectic interpretations of nature's beauty, outdoor landscapes and scenes by a diverse collection of painters from Minnesota, the Midwest and throughout the U.S.. Works in oil, pastel, watercolor, acrylic, photography and other media help deepen your Arboretum experience and add interesting perspective to your visit.
The gallery features four to five exhibits per year touching on seasonal themes. From time to time, informal tours are offered of the current exhibit or artists talks and painting demonstrations in the Great Hall or in the gardensg artists are scheduled. Exhibits are open year-round during scheduled building hours and are free with Arboretum admission. Art in the Reedy Gallery are for sale through the Arboretum Gift Store, with a portion of the proceeds from each sale directly benefitting the Arboretum.
The Arboretum is pleased to collaborate with the Wilcock Gallery of Excelsior, Minn., in curating and organizing exhibits with artists. While the Reedy Gallery has featured nature-themed art since its opening in the Oswald Visitor Center in 2005, this collaboration provides greater exposure to a broader community of artists in seasonally-themed collections.
