The exceptionally large number of works loaned to the exhibition will offer visitors a unique opportunity to study close up the revolutionary and highly imaginative visual language of Hieronymus Bosch.

New ARC Associate Living Master™
ARC is pleased to welcome Jane Jones as an Associate Living Master™!

Harmony by Jane Jones
“The flowers in her paintings all come from her gardens, or a local orchid grower, and are infused with the crystalline light of her home in Colorado. ‘Every year I get to participate in the amazing transformation of a plant that survived the winter, into a determined plant reaching for the sun and giving all of its life force to create glorious and spectacular flowers.’ Each painting is composed to highlight the most beautiful qualities of each flower. In its way, each painting is a celebration of that piece of nature.”
