April Waters: Water-ice-sky, Antarctica

Hallie Ford Museum of Art, Salem, OR - To Aug 13

by Joseph Gallivan

Salem artist April Waters used a grant from the National Science Foundation Antarctic Artists and Writers Program to visit Palmer Station in Antarctica to study the land- scape with an artist’s eye. She was wowed by the icy beauty but disturbed by the accelerated melting caused by global warming. Her paintings, based on her sketches and photos, reflect the grandeur of the landscape and the changing climate of the southernmost continent. Her next stop: Greenland.
