Join us for a reception and book signing for The Arctic Melt: Images of a Disappearing Landscape (Assouline, April 2017) with author Diane Tuft. Driven by her desire to create a comprehensive picture of the fragility of the Arctic region, Tuft traveled by plane, boat, and helicopter to the mountain glaciers of Norway, the Arctic Oceanʼs sea ice, and the icebergs and ice sheet of Greenland during the summers of 2015 and 2016. The resulting photographs are a testament to the beauty and vulnerability of the planetʼs northernmost regions.
Diane Tuft is a mixed-media artist who has focused on photography since 1998. She has had solo exhibitions at the Marlborough Gallery and others in New York City, the Kimball Art Center, the Bruce Museum, and the Southampton Center.
