Water – it’s everywhere! The majority of the earth’s surface is covered by water, and more than half of the human body consists of water. But water also plays an essential role in our survival.
Cultures have thrived based on their proximity to water, and crops survive or fail, based on rain or the lack thereof. Every living thing depends on water to survive, and life hangs in the balance when shortages persist.
This exhibition encouraged the artist to interpret one of the most vital, desired, powerful, sacred, and enjoyed resources on earth in their own unique, individual style, whether abstract, graphic, or representational.
The exhibition was juried by SAQA Juried Artist Member Linda Gass, who is widely known for her environmental activism on land and water use issues in California.
H2OH! will premiere at the the National Quilt Museum, in Paducah, Kentucky on June 23, 2017.
