Arctic and Antarctic photos on display at Vail Library

VAIL – The town of Vail’s Art in Public Places presents a photography exhibition by Roxanne Granzow in conjunction with the Fifth Annual Triumph Winterfest. The exhibition will be on view in the Community Room at the Vail Library through Feb. 15, with a presentation by the artist on Thursday at 5 p.m.

The exhibit is comprised of images Granzow captured during her journeys to both the Arctic and Antarctic. She has traveled on four occasions to the Arctic between 1996 to 2001 and to Antarctica for extended five-week stays during 2006-’07 and 2009. The diversity of these worlds is represented through the work currently on display.

“As you will see through these images the only similarity in these distinctive environments is the cold,” Granzow said.

Her voyages to these far reaching destinations are portrayed through her poetic images of wildlife in their natural environment.

Granzow grew up on Long Island, New York. She has always had a passion for animals and photography. She first attended school for Marine Biology, but decided photography would allow her to observe animals of the entire world, rather than restrict her to the shores alone. In the mid ’70s, Granzow moved to Vail and since then she has been all over the word photographing wildlife. She photographs outdoors in the wild, so she can experience animals in their natural environments.

Granzow’s passion for photography transcends to educating young people about her travel experiences. She hopes by viewing her photographs, people will have a better appreciation for animals, and the part they play here on earth.

This event is free and open to the public.
