Great Glacier (Art Card)

"Great Glacier"
Coronation Glacier, Auyuittuq National Park, Baffin Island, Nunavut, Canada

Card Size: 4"x 9"

“At three kilometres wide, Coronation Glacier is a majestic display of icy peaks and crags in Baffin Island’s Auyuittuq National Park. Billy Arnaquq’s freighter canoe carried us through a fiord lined with mile high mountains where we set up camp while keeping an eye on the polar bear across the water.

For the next couple of days I explored the glacier under a shifting veil of fog. While amazed at the changing show, it only afforded partial views at any given time. Then, on the evening of our return to Qikiqtarjuaq, it all came together. The fog lifted and the evening light revealed Coronation in all its glory. From Billy’s boat, I set up my easel for one of my most memorable evenings in the Arctic.

The study I began here inspired my largest painting to date, and possibly the largest landscape painting ever to be created from the Canadian Arctic, my 15 foot wide Great Glacier. I hope it conveys the arctic wonder I’ve been privileged to experience.” - Cory

The original painting is the centrepiece of the touring INTO THE ARCTIC Collection.

Includes an envelope and is individually wrapped in a biodegradable clear bag.
