Ray Troll: Cruisin' The Fossil Coastline
Wednesday, February 27 at 7 p.m., Northtown Books welcomes artist Ray Troll for a visual presentation and book signing for his latest book, Cruisin' The Fossil Coastline, a collaboration with Kirk Johnson.
Troll’s renditions of everything from salmon to marine mammals to creatures only found in the fossil record have become iconic in fishing, scientific, and environmental activism communities around the world.
He seeks inspiration from extensive field work in marine science, paleontology, geology, ecology, and evolutionary biology. His paintings and mixed-media drawings are in the collections of the Miami Museum of Science, the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture, Alaska Airlines, the Anchorage Museum, the Alaska State Museum, and the Ketchikan Museum.
