The Arboretum was home to more than just beautiful plants this weekend. For more than 20 years the Art at the Arboretum show allows guests to see many types of art.

Artists could enter their work to be displayed and purchased at the show.

For local artist Lynn Olsen, it’s all about sharing her artwork with others.

“It’s a wonderful place to exhibit your art,” Olsen said. “You get so many supporters to come in and keep us motivated and energized.”

In addition to the art inside, there was live art outside as well as a silent auction.

The show began Friday afternoon and continues Sunday.
