Part of celebration
Peninsula College art instructor Michael Paul Miller said the exhibition was organized as part of Peninsula College's celebration of the United Nation's declaration of 2013 as “The International Year of Water Cooperation.”
“We're very fortunate to have so many outstanding artists in our immediate vicinity,” Miller said.
“This exhibition provides a rare opportunity for people on the Peninsula to see the work of 14 regional artists collected in one spot and the variety of expression each brings to the idea of water,” he continued.
“I think those who visit the gallery will find the exhibit offers unique and powerful perspectives on water which may challenge their own views and what it means to global survival.”
Support for the exhibition is provided by NeoData Endowment Puffin Foundation Ltd.
Water around world
Special campuswide programs and class activities centered on the theme of water around the world will be presented throughout the academic year.
Activities will focus on such issues as war, health, the environment, the global economy, culture and immigration as they relate to water.
