Expressions Gallery Arts and Educational Center, a 501 C 3 non-profit organization presents, "Water. Water! Water?" July 25 – October 16, 2015. A single drop of water raises our awareness of the need, value and threat we are facing related to changing water conditions due to: Glacial Melting threatening Arctic animals, such as the polar bears and causing rising waters; Climate change which brings drought or floods and storms; Pollution which threatens ocean sea life, the cleanliness of our beaches and lakes; Loss of beautiful scenery such as lush rushing waterfalls and flowing rivers and other gorgeous sunset and water scenes and amazing ice formations; Acid rain which poisons our farmlands, crops and gardens; Loss of boating, water sports, fishing, survival of underwater fossil life and coral reefs; Vanishing animals, birds and sea creatures due to all the above and our attempts to save the environment by recycling and repurposing objects that would otherwise float in our oceans, and trash our land and our efforts to conserve the use and stop the abuse of water. All these are presented as part of the artwork of over 50 local artists who are concerned about these issues as part of Expressions Gallery show: “ WATER. WATER! WATER?” Artwork sinclude paintings, photography, digital art, collage, sculpture, crafts, glasswork, jewelry, fiber and textile art, and many other media used to create Art by over 50 local and international artists.
