Artist Talk: Wednesday, August 31 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Frank Webster’s strong concern for contemporary environmental issues permeate his recent work on Iceland. After spending time at the Nes Artist Residency in Skagaströnd on the east coast of the bay Húnaflói, Webster commenced a series of paintings depicting the strange and ethereal landscape of northern Iceland. Although at first glance these paintings hark back to the tradition of the sublime and of grand tour travel paintings, on further examination they reveal a wistfulness for wilderness and its passing, permeated with a sense of urgency that is emblematic of our current period of rapid climatic change.
