Exhibit features stark landscapes inspired by scientific papers and photos devoted to global warming

BANGOR – Husson’s spring 2022 visiting artist, Alison C. Dibble, will be speaking at a community artist reception on Wednesday, March 23 from 2-3 pm at the Robert E. White Gallery, adjacent to the University’s Campus Center in Peabody Hall. Peabody Hall is located at 54 College Circle in Bangor. The event is free and open to the public.

“The paintings in this exhibition show a vast, forbidding place, where the rate of melting has reached new records due to global warming,” said Dibble. “These mind’s-eye representations of the Greenland Ice Sheet captured on canvas are designed to move the viewer emotionally and cause people to care more about a faraway place. My focus is on strong design. My goal for this series was to create art that suggests a landscape that is immense, terrifying, and too beautiful to look away.”
