April 11, 2018: Film First Public Screening at the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco
The first screening of Cory’s Into The Arctic 3: The Last Chapter, was a wonderful affair at the spectacular Musée Océanographique de Monaco. In attendance was Prince Albert II, who Cory had the pleasure of meeting and having an official photo taken with below a 1906 painting of his great great grandfather’s (HSH Prince Albert I) expedition to the Arctic in Svalbard. His highness first stepped foot in the Arctic in 2006, on an expedition to the North Pole by dog sled. It was the same year Cory first explored the Canadian Arctic with his wife Janet and their daughters. The evening wrapped up with Cory holding a bilingual Q&A session with an audience passionate for both art and the Arctic!
ASGARD AWAITS: Full 20 minute travelogue/short film from Cory’s 2018 Asgard Expedition
Cory embarks on a 100km+ hiking journey for 2 weeks in the dramatic landscapes of Auyuittuq National Park on Baffin Island. Accompanied by his 19 year old daughter Sydney, he seeks to begin new paintings for his touring INTO THE ARCTIC Exhibition, with the big goal of finding a majestic view of Mount Asgard for a new 9 to 10 foot wide painting.
Aug 15, 2018: Asgard Expedition Completed!
In support of his internationally touring INTO THE ARCTIC Exhibition, which has expanded from two years in duration to four, Cory has recently returned from the Arctic where he began new oil paintings to join the collection in the years ahead. For the first 2 weeks he hiked and painted for over 100kms in the dramatic landscapes of Auyuittuq National Park on Baffin Island, accompanied by his 19 year old daughter Sydney. One of the big goals during the hike was to find a view for a major painting of Mount Asgard. On his first journey to Baffin in 2007, this majestic mountain was highlighted on his map, but at the mercy of unexpected travel conditions he never reached it. Instead, he focused his energies on another incredible peak, Mount Thor, which led to a 5 foot x 9 foot oil painting.
Cory was then picked up by a One Ocean Expeditions vessel in Pangnurtung. Aboard was his wife Janet, collectors and other guests on an amazing 11 day voyage up the coast of Baffin Island and Devon Island. Cory is now back in the studio, filled with new found inspiration, and a lot of canvases to fill!
