Here is a unique opportunity to express your own passion regarding the importance of water as a life sustaining necessity on a global, national, personal, or environmental level through your art.

It is not accidental that this exhibit will be taking place during the month of March. Since 1993, World Water Day has been an annual event celebrated on March 22, 2018. In addition to the exhibition reception on March 8, we will have a special event on World Water Day, March 22. Lisa McAllister, Director of Communications and Reporting for the Concord, NH based non-profit, ‘The Water Project,’ and fellow WCA/NH member Christine Destrempes, Artist and Executive Director of ‘Art and Dialogue- Pathways for Engagement’, will be our guest speakers for this event.

On behalf of ‘Mother Earth’ and all her living subjects, I invite you to check out some of the following inspirational articles listed below as well- but most of all, submit some art for this exhibition.

I invite you to follow your passion!

“It is such a necessary fight. It’s clean water, you know? I couldn’t just give up and go home and take a bath and not think about where that water came from.”

“Dying is a continuum. If you don’t get fed for seven, eight days, and you’re a child, you are dying. If you have 11 people- like we took out of a nursing home- severely dehydrated, you are dying.’

Breanna Edwards

quoting Carmen Yulin Cruz, mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, explaining how dying works to Geraldo Rivera in her Oct. 2, 2017 article for “The Root’.
