Visions of Iceland

When: Fri., March 11, 6:30-8:30 p.m. and Sat., March 12 2016

Iceland is renowned for its egalitarian tendencies and the great value its people place on personal freedom, qualities it has exhibited since the tenth century. To understand this rugged sense of self-determination you need only look at its landscape. Iceland has active volcanoes, lava fields, mountains, unearthly rock formations and a wealth of wide-open spaces where only the wind and ice live (small wonder the island served as the alien world in the film Interstellar). Photographers Jack Curran, Bill Schwab and Hans Strand have spent a great deal of time documenting this wild terrain. The three exhibit the fruits of their labor in the show Visions of Iceland. Each of the three captures something of the power and the isolation inherent in this stalwart island nation.
