About Into the Arctic

Artist Cory Trépanier traveled, hiked, explored, and painted the Arctic over a 10 year span. The result is a series of more than 50 powerful paintings capturing the most remote and wild corners of the Canadian North. This January, Into the Arctic will be displayed as a shared exhibition between the Vancouver Maritime Museum and at the Vancouver Civic Theatre's operated Queen Elizabeth Theatre, where a gallery space has been created in its grand, 3-storied lobby.

Into the Arctic will be on display at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre from January 26th - March 25th, and will be viewable during scheduled, ticketed events.
