‘Ice Bound’ – a fascinating exhibition by award-winning artist Darren Rees

Award-winning artist Darren Rees received the highly commendable Artist in Residency honour, from the Friends of The Scott Polar Research Institute in 2015.

The impressively self-taught artist’s ‘Ice Bound’ exhibition documents his travels with the Royal Navy on the ice-breaker HMS Protector from the Falkland Islands to the Antarctic Peninsula.

His collection includes sketches, watercolours and acrylic paintings of the fascinating penguin colonies on the Falklands at Volunteer point, to the whale-filled seas of Antarctica.


The exhibition is at Dundee’s Discovery Point.


The exhibition is running from now until April, so you have plenty of time to check it out.
