Into the Arctic: An Exhibition of Art and Film

INTO THE ARCTIC Exhibition Tour Promo – Sternberg Museum of Natural History from CoryTrepanier on Vimeo.

INTO THE ARCTIC showcases over fifty original oil paintings by artist Cory Trépanier. Over a decade in the making, this traveling exhibition comprises highlights from the most ambitious body of artwork ever dedicated to the Canadian Arctic. With a pack full of painting, filming, and camping gear, Trépanier traversed over 40,000 kilometers, through six Arctic National Parks and 16 Arctic communities, exploring many more places in between, in a biosphere so remote and untouched, that most of its vast landscape has never been painted before.

To learn more Into the Arctic and Cory Trépanier visit our current exhibitions page.
