As we reported in September last year, Georgia spent three weeks in the perpetual daylight of the Arctic, as a guest of the Czech Centre for Polar Ecology, and supported by the Scottish International Education Trust.

Since her return, she has produced new works reflecting the beauty of the Arctic and highlighting the threats posed by climate change. The paintings include a 10-metre-long piece, made on eight separate boards, depicting the 180-degree view from north to south.

Georgia is due to give a presentation about her work at the Arctic Science Summit Week on 7 April, and is planning for an exhibition of new works to open on 12 April at Knupp Gallery. Georgia has one week left to raise the necessary funds to transport 20 paintings to Prague, please help if you can.
