Into the Arctic showcases a collection of over 60 Arctic oil paintings and 3 films from Trepanier’s four Arctic expeditions to the furthest reaches of the Canadian North, a wilderness so remote and untouched, that many of its landscapes have never been documented before.

Highlighting the collection is Trépanier’s 15 foot wide “Great Glacier”, possibly the largest Arctic landscape painting in Canada’s history.  About his work, the artist has said

“Exploring and painting the Arctic intimately - by hiking, canoeing, camping, traveling with the Inuit - all this prepares me to experience nature’s wonder on a visceral and emotional level. Through this approach, I experience firsthand the awe and overwhelming sense of humility that is brought on from the realization of how tiny I am in these expansive landscapes.”

Artifacts from Alaska and Canada that are housed in the Neville’s Permanent Collection will also be on display.  Many of these were collected by Ann Bannon in the late 1920s and early 1930s and range from a walrus tusk cribbage board to seal skin mittens.
