November 10th, 2018 through February 24th, 2019 Working in the tradition of Frank E. Schoonover and the Golden Age masters, renowned illustrator Gregory Manchess has created a lavishly painted novel about the son of a famed polar explorer searching for his stranded father, and a lost city buried under snow in an alternate future. In "Above the Timberline", when it started to snow, it didn't stop for 1,500 years. The Pole Shift that ancient climatologists talked about finally came, the topography was ripped apart and the weather of the world was changed-forever. In this world, Wes Singleton leaves the academy in search of his father, the famed explorer Galen Singleton, who was searching for a lost city until Galen's expedition was cut short after being sabotaged. But Wes believes his father is still alive somewhere above the timberline. Original artworks from the book will be on view. Gregory Manchess is an award-winning painter, whose work has appeared on covers and feature stories of "National Geographic Magazine", "Time", "Atlantic Monthly", and "The Smithsonian". Manchess' excellent figure work has led to numerous commissions for stamps by the US Postal Service, including the Mark Twain stamp and and the recently released "March on Washington" stamp.
