In Spring 2013, expeditionary artist Maria Coryell-Martin joined University of Washington scientist Dr. Kristin Laidre in West Greenland to investigate the effects of sea ice loss on polar bears and narwhals, iconic species of the Arctic. This interdisciplinary collaboration will result in a collection of stories and powerful imagery to inspire stewardship for the Arctic and our global environment.
So excited and proud to announce that I will be a part of the opening of Imaging the Arctic, an exhibition spearheaded by my collaborator on Myths of the Tusk, Kristin Laidre. Opening reception is Thursday, December 11th, at the Nordic Heritage Museum in Ballard. Come say hi, buy some comics (they’re selling as fast as I can make them!) and check out the watercolors and photography by two other great artists. There will be a real narwhal tusk, and probably some wine!
