Her Water, Her Future

A WCA/NH Member Show

All over the Globe, the role women play as providers, users, and guardians of water—one of the most elemental of our human rights—can be seen in action. From women and girls in sub-Saharan Africa spending 40 billion hours in one year in search of and carrying water, to women in Flint, Michigan; Sacred Stone North Dakota; and Houston fighting for safety of and preservation of clean water, there are examples of contributions made by women that improve water governance and acquisition for present and future generations. Time spent carrying water is time absent from school. Drinking water contaminated with water borne illnesses, lead, and other chemicals causes sickness, irreversible damage to bodies and brains especially of children, and death—of individuals and entire communities alike. Clean water is needed for a civil society to grow and prosper.

One of the major principals of the Dublin Statement on Water is “Women play a central part in the provision, management, and safeguarding of water.”

And from the United Nations: “World Water Day (March 22) is a day to raise awareness and inspire action to tackle water and sanitation issues.”

Entries are closed.

 Glass Ceiling: Limitless View

A WCA/NH and 3S Artspace Juried Exhibition

CONGRATULATIONS! Beverly Alomepe, June August, Rachelle Beaudoin, Sally Bomer, Merrill Comeau, Tanya Fletcher, Samantha Jones, Heather Lyon, Aimee Margolis, Annette Mitchell, Laura Morrison, Ashley Normal, and Dayna Talbot. Their work has been selected for Glass Ceiling: Limitless View.
Celebrate with us at the opening reception on March 30, from 5-7pm. Curator, Bethany Engstrom, will share thoughts about the exhibit at 7pm. 
WCA/NH artists, Cynthia Robinson, Anne McMillan, Davida Cook, and Dayna Talbot have put together an installation of work in The Lobby Gallery @ 3S Artspace which provide an additional opportunity for the public to engage in a public art piece.
 WCA/NH welcomes the opportunity to work with 3S Artspace on a collaborative juried exhibition. Glass Ceiling: Limitless View seeks to present a carefully curated selection of contemporary artists’ reflections on the idea of the Glass Ceiling as well as the Limitless View your perspective may hold.  Where and how has the idea of the Glass Ceiling affected you?  What joys and sorrows do you relate to gender or to society’s notion of gender?  Power?  Potential?  Limitless view?
The term “glass ceiling” is representative of intangible barriers within a hierarchy that prevents women and minorities from obtaining upper-level positions. WCA/NH celebrates the successes of its women artists not only in New Hampshire but also on a national level. Collectively, we draw inspiration from the world around us. Whether it be in nature, politics, or the environment, we would like to encourage you to submit your work to this exhibition and share your perspectives.  Our organization believes we should all embrace and practice an appreciation for different disciplines, processes, modes of our artistic expression, promoting inclusion, diversity and education in the world of art making.

Guest curator:  Bethany Engstrom, Curator, Center for Maine Contemporary Art
