TREPANIER’S 8 FOOT WIDE GLACIERSIDE PAINTING ON LOAN TO THE EMBASSY OF CANADA IN WASHINGTON D.C. FOR A YEAR.

During a week in Washington D.C., Cory shared Canada’s North with Canadian ambassadors to the US, museum directors, US senators and even the Secretary of the Interior.

The timing is most appropriate as this spring Canada prepares to pass along the chairmanship of the Arctic Council to the United States.
In addition to seeing Glacierside hanging at the Embassy for the next year, Cory was there to explore the idea of bringing the Arctic to Washington on a larger scale in 2017 with Into The Arctic, his forthcoming North American Traveling Museum Exhibition. Glacierside will then be joined by over 50 more of Cory’s paintings from the furthest reaches of Canada’s north, and by his Arctic films, maps and more.

Almost a decade ago the artist/ filmmaker began his Into The Arctic project with the unique artistic goal of creating the most unprecedented collection of original oil paintings of our time from the Canadian Arctic.

To accomplish this, Cory undertook 3 extensive Arctic painting/ filming expeditions, painting many landscapes that have never been captured on canvas before. Two films have resulted from his journeys as well, with Into The Arctic II being nominated for a Canadian Screen Award nominated.

Now, visitors to the Canadian Embassy will be seized by the stark beauty of this majestic land through Cory’s passionate brushstrokes. On display until February 2016, Glacierside is accompanied by the small oil study began on location, and visiting dignitaries to the Arctic Room will be receiving copies of his Into The Arctic II film to bring home the wonder of Canada’s North.

Into The Arctic began in 2006. Cory completed 3 Canadian Arctic painting/filming expeditions, 2 films, and is working towards the completion of a collection of 50 oil paintings which includes "Great Glacier", which at 15 feet wide, will become one of the largest representational Arctic landscape paintings in Canada's history.

On the project's website you will find films trailers, 65 video journals, 1000 photos, written journals, media coverage, paintings and much more.

In 2001, Cory launched Coast To Canvas and set out for almost a month in each season to explore and paint
along the rugged coastlines of Ontario's Lake Superior and Georgian Bay, accompanied by his wife and then 2.5 and 6 year old daughters.

The result was a touring exhibiton of 33 oil paintings and Cory's and his wife Janet's first film, "A Painter's Odyssey".
