Art in the Arctic

June 28 - July 7th 2018


The highlights were many, and working with the other artists was a great experience.  But the polar bear encounters were many and varied - and absolutely wonderful.


From a large male on the shoreline framed by the dark slopes of scree beyond, to a female with two cubs resting and sleeping for most of the hours we watched.


From a young male swimming far out at sea a considerable distance from the the ice front, to another young male constantly checking the breeze while he watched a distant female working her way around an ice-jammed bay upwind.
