“Antarctica: Seasons of Water and Ice”

“Antarctica: Seasons of Water and Ice” will be on exhibit on the second floor of UWF’s John C. Pace Library, Room 215, October 23 through December 12. A public reception will be held in the exhibit space on Monday, November 29 from 5-7 p.m.

This traveling exhibition is a selection of photographs and research by oceanographer Dr. Wade Jeffrey. The artwork on display was created during two oceanographic research trips to western Antarctica during 2019. The images from these expeditions present a contrast between the long days of summer and very short days of winter. Images show some of the diversity of Antarctic vistas, from gray to blue skies, and open water to icebergs and sea ice. The main focus of Dr. Jeffrey’s research on these trips was examining a unique group of single cell plankton called mixotrophs that can live and grow like both plants and animals.

Wade Jeffrey is a Distinguished University Professor at the University of West Florida where he is the director of the Center for Environmental Diagnostics & Bioremediation as well as the Reubin O’D. Askew Institute for Multidisciplinary Studies. As an oceanographer, his research has taken him to some unique environments around the world, always with a camera.

This event is being presented by the John C. Pace Library; The Art Gallery at UWF; UWF Department of Art; and UWF College of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities
