Join us on Friday, October 5, 2012 at the GeoData Center in the International Arctic Research Center for "Snow & Ice" – a First Friday Art Show. The event will run from 5 to 7 p.m. on the West Ridge of the University of Alaska Fairbanks campus.

"Snow & Ice" features ice-inspired photography by USGS Scientist and Photographer Austin Post, Adam Hughes, a local nature photographer, and the work of faculty, staff and students of the UAF Geophysical Institute. Come see a wide range of snow and ice – from colorful satellite imagery of Alaska glaciers, scenic shots of radiant icebergs to microscopic images of ice crystals that resemble a colorful mosaic.

The First Friday event is free and parking is available just outside the International Arctic Research Center. Refreshments will be served and items will be for sale. Orders for additional photographic and canvas prints of the featured photography can be ordered through GI's Design Services. Come support your friends and colleagues at this unique event and pick up some beautiful, yet affordable artwork.

The event is sponsored by the UAF Geophysical Institute and the International Arctic Research Center.
