CONSEQUENCES: Observations from the Warming North will show from January 21 – May 27, 2023. From the exhibition description:

"Ree Nancarrow’s work draws on her deep love of nature, extensive knowledge of the natural world, and deep concern about climate change. A long-time Alaska resident, Nancarrow has watched climate change’s rapid advance in the northern climes. She expresses her concerns about the climate in her work, creating images and marks by silk-screening, deconstructed silk-screening, stenciling, stamping, painting, dying fabric, and photographing. She combines these images digitally and intuitively, often creating new color palettes to better express the mood. The surface of her work is elaborately quilted. Her vision and understanding of the natural world has been expanded by working collaboratively for more than a decade with scientists, musicians, and other artists."

The following works will be displayed:

  • Change at Deneki Lakes

  • Golden Eagle

  • Grizzly on River Bar

  • Marmot

  • Methane Bubbles 2

  • Methane Bubbles 4

  • Permafrost Melt in the Boreal Forest

  • Polychrome Slide

More information about the show can be found on the museum website.
