Gateways to Nature
May 11 – September 2, 2019

Showcasing Tyler Arboretum’s landscapes with a range of original works set throughout the Arboretum,
Tyler’s outdoor summer exhibit, Gateways to Nature asks visitors to see, feel, and experience the landscapes of Tyler in new ways.

Presenting an exciting range of frames, vistas, portals, and thresholds through which to step, to look, or through which to refocus attention on nature, the contributing artists to Gateways to Nature offer alternative experiences of art in the natural environment. Working in a range of materials, from wood, metal, and masonry, the 13 artists and makers included in
Gateways to Nature are:

J.D. Scott, of Williamsburg, Virginia, maker of Wind Tunnel
John Parker, Philadelphia, PA, maker of Bengal Tiger, Imperial Elk, and Flora Duet

Susan Benarcik, of Greater Philadelphia, maker of Conditioned to See
Vanny Channal, of Philadelphia, maker of Buck of Steel, Steel Mantis, and American Steel Eagle

For the duration of the exhibit, Tyler’s docent volunteers will lead tours on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
For visitors who prefer to explore alone, self-guided signage and maps will be available.

In Gateways to Nature, Tyler Arboretum invites visitors to pack a picnic and to pick a favorite piece of sculpture to spend time with while exploring nature through one of these different gateways.
