Join the Arts Council of Princeton (ACP) on Saturday, April 21 at 1pm for Artist Talk and Book Signing with Diana Burko and Michael Lemonick.
This event is held in conjunction with Earth, Fire, Water, Ice, Debris: Five Artists Comment on the Environment, on view in the ACP’s award-winning Taplin Gallery.
DIANE BURKO carries on the landscape tradition of the 19th century, but gives it a 21st century perspective. Burko has always painted the extreme landscape, including the world’s largest ice fields—Greenland, Antarctica (twice), Argentina’s Patagonia, Alaska, and the Northern Atlantic just below the Arctic Circle. In the last few years, the works she has been creating have been shown in over 100 exhibitions throughout the country in such venues as the National Academy of Sciences, Washington, DC as well as the more usual venues of art museums and galleries.
