      Great White North

      It’s a frozen part of the world few of us will ever see. But painter Cory Trépanier spent 10 years exploring its landscapes and has brought back stunning images—many of them of places so remote, they have never been documented before. Into the Arctic plunges you into the ice and tundra, with 50 oil paintings and three films from Trépanier’s four Arctic expeditions. (His Along the Ice is shown here.) The exhibit, running at two venues, is a timely chance to look at one of the last frontiers. It kicks off on Friday (January 26), from 6 to 9 p.m. in the Queen Elizabeth Theatre lobby, with live music by Nunavut’s the Trade-Offs.

      Into the Arctic is at the Vancouver Maritime Museum and the Queen Elizabeth Theatre from Friday (January 26) to March 25.
