H2Oh! (SAQA Global Exhibition)

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.

Juror: Linda Gass

Linda Gass combines environmental activism and artmaking to bring awareness to land use and water issues in California. Using the lure of beauty, her colorful and highly textured stitched paintings encourage people to look at the hard issues we face.
