In the wake of 2012's extreme weather and new record lows se t by the Arctic sea ice\, we pay tribute to these stunning natural formatio ns. These earthly beauties are captured in three distinct creative styles – mixed media\, oil on canvas\, and photography.

\n

\n

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

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

We will also feature the photogr aphy 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 d ays journeying over 3\,200 nautical miles in Antarctica before heading to P atagonia for the second part of his expedition.  Throughout his journey\, h e referenced the stories of Antarctic explorers\, Ernest Shackleton and Rob ert Scott.  Like them\, he saw his surroundings to be dangerous\, inhospita ble 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 continen t\, it's still in your memory."<\;
