The Tombaugh Gallery presents “Walking on Ice,” a collection of artwork by Jonathan Marquis, in an exhibit continuing until Sunday, November 27.
Most notably, in 2014 he launched the Glacier Drawing Project on Kickstarter as endeavor to draw each glacier in the state of Montana. The ongoing project has so far taken him thousands of miles to thirty-five moving bodies of ice, spending many weeks in glacial wilderness areas.
His works have been exhibited in galleries and museums across the mountain west, and he has received multiple awards, scholarships, and fellowships for his work with glaciers, including The Graduate Fellowship for interdisciplinary research at The University of Arizona.
Jonathan spends his summers wandering remote mountain ranges investigating glaciers and their societal and historical territory through drawing, painting, video and photography.
There will be an opening reception and artist talk from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, October 30 as well as a closing artist talk on Sunday, November 27.
The Tombaugh Gallery is located inside the Unitarian Universalist Church, and is open Wednesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
