Icebergs and Glaciers
February 1 - April 28, 2013

Reception with the Artists, Saturday, April 13 from 4-7pm

Icebergs and Glaciers
In the wake of 2012's extreme weather and new record lows set by the Arctic sea ice, we pay tribute to these stunning natural formations. These earthly beauties are captured in three distinct creative styles – mixed media, oil on canvas, and photography

Glaciers and Icebergs will include the Alaskan Journey series by mixed media pioneer, Rosalind Schneider. Rosalind uses imagery shot from a small plane, a boat and while hiking on the surface of glacier located in Prince William Sound and Wrangel St. Elias, Alaska. The series began in late 2010 and will debut several new works.

It will also feature a contemporary view of nature by internationally acclaimed artist, Elaine Galen. According to Elaine, "In a world of eroding values and environmental concerns, my effort is to affirm beauty’s morale order in nature. I am deeply moved by the presence of and the power of nature to penetrate deep into the soul — through painting I seek to preserve nature – the heavens, seas, skies, mountains, and our past”.

We will also feature the photography of John Conn, who spent 45 days in 2010 in Antarctica and Patagonia. traveling and hiking to capture the land and seascapes. He spent over 20 days journeying over 3,200 nautical miles in Antarctica before heading to Patagonia for the second part of his expedition. Throughout his journey, he referenced the stories of Antarctic explorers, Ernest Shackleton and Robert Scott. Like them, he saw his surroundings to be dangerous, inhospitable and forbidding. According to John, "There's menace here and the feel of it stays with you…it towers over you. And when you've left the continent, it's still in your memory."

Here's a video walkaround of the exhibit:
