Exploring the confluence of arts and science, Rowan University Art Gallery showcases the work of environmental artist Diane Burko in Vast and Vanishing. On display from March 8 – April 21, the exhibit is welcomed with a public reception and artist talk on Thursday, March 8 from 5:00 – 7:00 p.mEnvironmental artist Diane Burko has been documenting glacial recession as part of her ongoing work that intersects art and science around the urgent issue of climate change. In this exhibition we present a series of large-scale paintings and photographs that capture the dichotomies found in these extreme frozen environments. Conveyed in the work is an inescapable tension and play between monumental and intimate, splendor and somber, and expansive and confined; much like the climate issues they chronicle.
