‘Coastal Impressions’ opens at Cordova Museum

“Coastal Impressions” has opened as the newest exhibit at the Cordova Museum’s Copper River Gallery, museum officials and the Cordova Historical Society said.

The exhibit, which will be on display through the beginning of November, features a selection of images representing a range of ecology, geology, geomorphology and natural forces that create the mosaic of habitats along Alaska’s gulf coast.

Each image shows the shore during some of the lowest tides of the year.

Paula Payne, exhibition coordinator for the museum, completed hanging the exhibit in late September, in time for the official opening on Sept. 28.

The exhibit was created by the Alaska ShoreZone program, a mapping and classification system that specializes in low altitude aerial imagery of the coastal environment. “Coastal Impressions” is intended to share some of the collected imagery so that everyone can see the work being done by this organization.

The Copper River Gallery is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from noon to 5 p.m.
