Join us for the opening reception and artist talk for the upcoming exhibition Water’s Generosity guest curated by Zara Gordon featuring artists Angelika Forray and Marlee Munro. This exhibition explores reverence for the gifts of water through sculpture, painting, video and sound. This multi-sensory exhibition addresses the relationship between human and water, how we depend on its abundance for survival.

From the land, to the sea, and to the sky, Water’s Generosity explores our reverence for the gifts of water through sculpture, painting, video, and sound. Addressing the relationship between humans and water and the role that it plays in our lives. We depend on water and its abundance for our survival. It has an innate ability to transmute anything it touches. Water is a fundamental element of all life. From, the collective feeling of relief during the first rainfall after a long drought, to the blessings of the harvest that water gives us for cultivating its essence. As it ebbs and flows, so do we.

life is sinking,

dissolving into stone,

drips, drops,

evaporating

reminding us of a time gone by

but we are not alone,

we all feel the same pain without the rain

may it pour

so we can all drink

and remain. – Angelika Forray

Snacks and delicious beverages will be served, join us in welcoming this exhibition featured in our Satellite Gallery.
