The urgent issue of climate change will be on view in the timely exhibition Ice Show.

The exhibition features new work by Marin-based artist Bill Russell, whose paintings explore the effects of global warming on the polar icecap.

Using the iceberg as a visual metaphor, Russell endeavors to educate viewers about how global warming has expedited the creation of icebergs, and seeks to communicate the urgency of climate change in a way that will both resonate with and educate visitors.

The brutal changes occurring due to climate change are depicted through his narrative style. In The Deluge, the hot sun bears down through the depleted atmosphere as icebergs are set adrift from the melting icecap. The rising sea waters devour container ships, Noah’s Ark, the Titanic and other cultural icons, in an apocalyptic vision that builds upon Russell’s interest in human-influenced ecology.

Russell’s work is informed by his research into climate science and a recent visit to Iceland, providing substantive subject matter for his work.

Visit this educational exhibition to learn more about how this issue affects us all. The exhibition is free to the public.
