January 25, 6-8pm - Opening Reception, 5 pm - conversation with Anna McKee & Mark Twickler, UNH researcher
"This exhibition presents sensory works of art created in response to the colors, shapes, sounds, and climate of both the Arctic and the Antarctica. The work, most of which is time- or sound-based, stand as metaphors for the regions themselves—monumental, breathtaking, fleeting—creating impressions of places that can only truly be experienced in person."
"Surge, an exhibition designed to draw attention to climate change and its impact on Northwest’s coastal communities, provides the forum for artists together with environmental researchers and educators to present the public with new perspectives on issues such as flooding, sea level rise and storm surge. The relationships between scientists, artists, educators and community leaders have only strengthened since our first display of Surge, and public interest continues to build."
