The exhibit was curated by the museum’s executive director, Stacey Otte-Demangate, and is scheduled to remain on display until Monday, September 26. Works in the exhibit come from local Central Coast artists as well as guest artists based in Oregon, Washington, Alaska, New York, and Florida.

Three of the show’s star artists, Anna McKee, Xavier Cortada and David Rosenthal, participated in the National Science Foundation’s Antarctic Artists and Writers Program. Each of their artworks in the exhibition was inspired by their experiences during their time working in Antarctica.

“My art about glaciers and ice science is partly an attempt to deal with the grief of environmental degradation,” McKee said in press materials. “I traveled to remote camps with glaciologists to see these places through their eyes and my own observations.”

Other artists featured in the show include David Paul Bayles, Zaria Foreman, Amiko Matsuo, Ethan Turpin, Lorena Williams and Suze Woolf. Artwork created by The Environment Makers, a Santa Barbara-based group, is also on display in the exhibit.
