About the Community Art Exhibit:
The Woonasquatucket River watershed is more than a landscape. It is a cultural space full of energy, excitement and biodiversity. The watershed can be imagined as a meeting place for all. Though the watershed expands 50 square miles, we are all connected by the water running through our shared Woonasquatucket River. “Vibrant Life in the Woonasquatucket River Watershed” celebrates the Woonasquatucket River, and the community of artists who have been an integral part of our work. This exhibit and sale will also raise awareness of and funds for the WRWC’s programs and activities.
More than 50 locally and nationally artists have made paintings, collages, sculptures, photographs and more that celebrate vibrant life in the Woonasquatucket River watershed. Artists were invited to create work shaped by the Woonasquatucket River and its connected waterways. Artists were encouraged to work across the watershed and across disciplines that bring forward questions about human impacts on the environment, points of tension, and those that celebrate the vibrancy of the shared watershed. The juried art show will hang at Sprout CoWorking for the month of November.
Art was juried by a review board consisting of WRWC staff and board members and friends from the community. The WRWC invited work that was shaped by the Woonasquatucket River and its connected waterways. Art of all mediums will be featured. WRWC Director of Projects Lisa Aurecchia said, “The WRWC has a deep appreciation for the artists, students, and volunteers who have created beautiful works of art along the river and in its watershed. We are so excited to share work from old and new friends.”
