Drawing the Arctic
February 7, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
In spring of 2019, North Yarmouth wildlife artist Michael Boardman was selected to be the artist in residence at Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. He flew to the coastal plain of the refuge in June to spend two weeks at the Canning River Bird Camp, helping the ornithologists there study all the migrating birds breeding on the tundra. Michael will share his unique experience in an extreme environment, with plenty of artwork and sketches and stories about how the avian life of the refuge connects us to that endangered landscape.
