“We have a host of traveling exhibitions, but this is only the second time we have had an exhibition this large curated out of our permanent collection and sent to another museum,” said Rebecca Engelhardt, collections and exhibitions manager at the Museum of Glass. “The first was to the National Glass Center in the U.K.”
An artist can encounter tough obstacles when putting brush to canvas. But plein air painter Cory Trépanier’s challenges rise to another level altogether. For the past decade Trépanier, 50, lugged a backpack laden with easel, oils and camping gear to capture the beauty of the most remote regions of the Canadian Arctic.

He braved treacherous waters and bone-chilling temperatures.
