Gwinnett County Parks and Recreation will host a photographic exhibit entitled “Antarctic Impressions” by Lawrenceville resident Steen V. Mogensen. The event will be featured at the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse from Feb. 29 – May 19. An opening reception will be held on March 6, from 7-9 p.m. Exhibition hours are Monday-Friday 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Admission is free.

Mogensen is a trained electronics engineer, consulting to some of the largest telecommunications companies in the world. He has traveled the world extensively visiting more than 50 countries on six continents. The past three years he has supported a wildlife research team, studying Weddell seals in Antarctica and has spent a total of six months on “the Ice.”

Mogensen comments, “the work in Antarctica has offered me a unique opportunity to observe and document the beginning of life for the Weddell seal pups as well as some of the life cycle of the adult seals as they spend a few months on the ice surface to give birth.”
Mogensen resides in Lawrenceville with his family.

The Gwinnett Historic Courthouse is located at 185 W. Crogan St. in Lawrenceville. For more information call 770-417-2200 or visit
