ANTARCTICA - OBSESSION and PASSION
Western Washington University of Bellingham, Washington, USA hosts an exhibition of the tome ANTARCTICA, plus 83 Keough polar images. Pat and Rosemarie Keough attend a reception and present three illustrated lectures of their Antarctic and book arts experiences.
From the WWU’s press release:
Western Libraries has acquired the book ANTARCTICA, by Pat and Rosemarie Keough, and made it part of the Libraries Rare Book Collection. The purchase was made possible through generous support from the Provosts Office, the Deans of the Colleges, and donors to the Western Libraries. This magnificent tome with its 336 stunning images, copy 405 of a limited signed edition of 950, will be on display during the exhibit, accompanied by its custom-made African mahogany display stand.
The Keoughs’ work, which captures the rare beauty of Antarctica’s mountains, glaciers and wildlife, is the result of two austral summers spent on the Antarctic continent.
Pat & Rosemarie Keough wish to express their appreciation to: Bela Foltin, Brad Smith, Jerry Boles, Rick Osen, Connie Mallison, Gary Malick, Elaine Furlong, Heather Dalzell, Martha Mautino, Wanda Maddox, Lorne Kenyon and many more!
