Sara Tabbert at the the Alaska State Museum in Juneau

Lowlands is an exhibition of new work that reflects my relationship to a very specific place.  Though specific in my mind, the lowlands of my backyard are not unlike a thousand various other swampy places throughout Interior Alaska.

For me, that is a slow and…

I had heard many stories about it from travelers I’ve known but didn’t have a sense of it really. The reality was unexpected. Too many tourists in Reykjavik, glaciers of immense size, a dramatic…
