Reflections on Water

We invite you to contribute to our exhibit Reflections on Water at Confluence Gallery in Twisp, WA.
The show will open August 18,2018, and run through September 22, 2018.

Summary

This exhibit is about the essential nature of clean, fresh water in streams, rivers, lakes or in a glass. Oceans of water. The power of water in its many forms. The play of light and shadow, reflected surroundings, swirling, rippling or still – such wonderful colors and textures. Many Americans have taken safe water for granted. Laws that protect water, lakes, streams and the ocean are weakening in favor of corporate exploitation sold as jobs – what good is a job if there is not clean water for all? Water means life and water is sacred – what can be more important to the well being of all life. Use your creative power in gratitude of water and celebrate its life giving force, its beauty, its power and if it feels right to you – the politics of water.
