Regina Gardner Milan spent a year of discovery at the Arboretum. Botanical jewels of each season--early larches, spring blossoms, fall acorns, autumn leaves--are captured in her exquisite paintings. Nature holds a spellbinding allure to Milan, who finds that observing nature often produces scenes of larger-than-life beauty. The Arboretum's exhibition magnifies nature's productions, fully illuminating the elegance of plant life as small as a seed pod. This show captures the wonder of the Arboretum in those larger-than-life images.

Milan received a Certificate of Botanical Illustration with distinction from the Society of Botanical Artists in London, England, where she also received the President's Award. She has exhibited in many juried shows throughout the US and world, including the 2016 New England Society of Botanical Artists' show at the Arnold Arboretum. She teaches graphic design as an Associate Teaching Professor at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell, and is president of MILAN concept & design, a graphic design firm she founded in 1988.
