Water for Life -- come out to see a great international exhibition

I'm so proud to be exhibiting in this wonderful international show in Niagara Falls
this summer.  If you're in town please come out to the opening on May 12 at 7 pm.
The theme is water "Water for Life" and the concept is timely -- with so many
people in the world unable to access clean water, and with our own careless
treatment of our lakes, rivers and oceans.  

My paintings are not political, but I started painting images with the ocean as
part of the theme a few years ago.  My motivation was to honour the landscapes
cherished by people I met, and also my own strong connection to the astounding
ocean vistas, I'm privileged to see every year when we visit our one room school
house in Nova Scotia.  In my ocean landscape work I want to celebrate the beauty
I see.  And it breaks my heart that we are harming our most precious resource -- water.

Aside from the thrill of exhibiting with such amazing artists in the Niagara Falls
History Museum, beside one of the natural wonders of the world (Niagara Falls),
I am so looking forward to seeing some of the artists I've shown with before in
Florence, Italy at the Florence, Biennale. And the curator for the last Florence Biennale
I exhibited in, in 2015, is the International Cultural Promoter of this show in
Canada -- Angelina Herrera. The Artistic Director for the exhibition is Antoine

So if you are in Niagara Falls please stop by on May 12 at 7 pm..  The show runs
until September 9.

Have a loving water day.

Thanks so much Marilyn,

I will. I have one large piece (4 x 6 feet) in the show. Inspired by you, I'll say something
about it in the next day or so.
