What a week this has been! In other news, I just found out that the owner of Art Intersection Gallery asked me to do a 3 month exhibition next year (April 18-July 11, 2020) of my Antarctica journey at Gallery 4 at the Gilbert Historical Museum. This gallery showcases artwork with strong social, environmental and cultural messages. I’m beyond honored and have been scrambling the past few days to provide a write-up and preliminary images for the announcement of the exhibition. In addition to a full room of photography from the trip, we have plans to show some of the videos I took of the experience including Emperor penguin chicks interacting with each other and of the dangerous journey across the Drake Passage in which we got caught in a storm and thrown (literally) around the ship. Also I was asked by the museum program coordinator to speak on April 25, 2020, World Penguin Day, about the Emperor penguin’s natural history and how climate change is affecting them. Please save the date! Here’s the announcement of my exhibition along with a few photos that I haven’t shown anyone yet:

  1. Amy, really love those special photos….thank you. Very exciting that you will be able to do video and audio with your exhibition. Plus addressing the effects of climate change/global warming could be very enlightening for adults and children. Date on my calendar now.
