the Global Rivers Art Show Opens at Martin Methodist College

Posted on 3rd February 2010 by admin in Rivers of the world

Last week we opened our collection of 38 paintings in the new Barton Gallery in the Gault Fine Art Center here in Pulaski, TN. The paintings are beautifuly displayed and the over all effect of the show is strong. This group of artists has told the truth about the rivers they love. Many of the paintings are dark and tell a story of pollution and concern. I am struck by how many artists speak about rivers that were pristine in their lifetime but have just recently become polluted. One artist tells of the St. John’s river in Florida that used to be polluted but has recently been cleaned. This gives me hope for the future. If only more people will take the time to study , create, and educate the public about the rivers like these artists have done, our water would be protected.

  1. Bernice – you are so riding a ‘wave’ – no pun intended – the water of the earth is crying out for us to pay attention. As Jon said, you need a Facebook Link, there are so so many of us who do live by a river!! You surely have found a life of art & purpose, I am very glad for you. I have worlked with several of the watersheds in the Athens area. Will have to connect some of the ‘water bugs’ up with your site.
    Enjoy life & the changes you make!

    ps Jon’s blog is also a work of art.
