Over a decade in the making, Cory Trépanier’s INTO THE ARCTIC Exhibition Tour presents the most ambitious body of artwork ever created from the Canadian Arctic. Adding to his majestic paintings are a series of Arctic films, which cinematically convey the wonder, awe, and challenges of his northern painting expeditions. The INTO THE ARCTIC Exhibition Tour showcases an unprecedented collection of over 60 Arctic oil paintings and 3 films from Trepanier’s 4 Arctic expeditions to the furthest reaches of the Canadian North, a wilderness so remote and untouched, that many of its landscapes have never been documented before. The tour premiered on January 10, 2017 at the Embassy of Canada in Washington D.C. The Dane G. Hansen Museum, Logan, KS is the first stop on its two year, six-museum journey across the U.S.A designed to passionately engage audiences through the beauty of the Canadian Arctic, and instill concern for careful stewardship of one of the most fragile regions of our planet. Highlighting the collection is Trépanier’s 15 feet wide "Great Glacier," quite possibly the largest Arctic landscape painting in Canada’s history. Museum Hours are M-F 9-12 & 1-4; Sat. 9-12 & 1-5; Sun. & Holidays 1-5.
