Call for Art “Waterways”

We need your creative voice to speak loudly about the environment! “Waterways” is an open call art exhibit to benefit the Cathance River Education Alliance, set for June 4th through August 6th in Brunswick Maine. The exhibit “Waterways” is meant to draw attention to our living planet both to celebrate, and to raise awareness of the diversity of species, all of which are affected by our actions and inactions. This year we as artists to submit work about or relating to the health of our oceans, streams, rivers, lakes, bogs and the life that depend on these habitats. We welcome diversity of artistic expression to reflect this huge part of our natural environment, but we reserve the right to turn away art that does not relate to this topic. This will be the 8th annual All Species exhibit, which has drawn artists from across Maine and across the country. This year we have chosen the Cathance River Education Alliance to receive the funds raised. We recognize the important role that this organization plays in educating the public and protecting species in our local community. 30% from each sale will be donated to this important and well-loved local organization.
