Larry Ferguson, Antartica: Journey & Destination

Antarctica is one of the most inhospitable – and beautiful – places on earth. Photographer Larry Ferguson captured the magnificent scenery during a seventeen-day excursion fraught with icebergs, freezing temperatures and bitter winds. It was the trip of a lifetime that resulted in visually stunning images of an unforgiving landscape most of us can only imagine. The Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts is pleased to present Ferguson’s photographic documentation of this arduous expedition in Antarctica: Journey & Destination, on view December 9, 2005 - February 14, 2006. Ferguson’s exhibition is part of his award as the Bemis Center’s Community Artist Fellowship, established to reward community artists for their contributions to the community.

An Opening Reception takes place Friday, December 9th, from 7:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. The photographer will also present a Gallery Talk on Saturday, January 21st, at 12:00 noon to discuss his journey and exhibition. Both events are FREE, and the public is warmly invited to attend.
