Polar Encounters

18 September 2018 - 13 April 2019

Polar Encounters features 200 years of Arctic art by Inuit artists and European travellers to the far north, showing different interpretations of life at home, at camp and at sea.

Exhibition Curator, Charlotte Connelly says, "For the communities who have lived in the Arctic for thousands of years, the polar regions are homely, while for European explorers first encounters with the far north felt bleak and difficult. These different perspectives are revealed through the art on display, which spans 200 years and artists from a range of backgrounds."

Drop in for free, Tuesday - Saturday, 10-4.
