Albuquerque-based artist Marietta Patricia Leis shows her work with David Vogal at the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts in Boone, North Carolina. The show, titled Melting, examines climate change from a personal point of view on a trip to Antarctica.

Melting runs April 1-August 26, 2016. Leis will be in attendance for the reception on July 1 and giving a lecture on the work on July 6.
