Arctic Art

Gl_02_2 Ever seen the Arctic up close? Mother-and-daughter artists Rena Bass Forman and Zaria Forman have, and they've captured dozens of starkly beautiful icebergs for a special climate-change exhibit at the Look North Inuit Art Gallery in New York City this fall. Opening September 6 with a presentation by the Climate Project, the show will include photographs and drawings of Greenland landscapes. The gallery, which is run by a former crab fisherman, also displays contemporary Inuit art from the Arctic. Sales of the prints and sculptures provide income for isolated northern villages. If you can't make it to the Big Apple, get a taste of the work online at looknorthny.com.
