H2O: A Deep Dive
July 12 @ 12:00 pm - August 19 @ 5:00 pm
The new exhibition at Rocky Neck Art Colony, H2O: A Deep Dive, explores how we know water through an artistic lens. In the call for art for the show, open to Rocky Neck Art Colony members and others, artists were asked to probe the subject of water and engage viewers to think about and appreciate its importance in our world.
Water, ice and steam, the three states of H2O, are easily observable in our daily lives. Water is in every living cell on earth, acting as the necessary transport for all vital functions. Solid ice of winter yields to the green of spring, and evaporation from summer’s heat returns as rainstorms and cold fall frosts. As the water flows, so follows life, its primacy reflected throughout the world’s arts, religions, mythologies, sciences and economies.
“If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water.”- Loren Eiseley.
