Curated by Sandra Mueller and Danielle Eubank

As the majority of the world’s population, it is incumbent upon women to be guardians of the future. We need to look after our people, our natural environment, and our water. Water is a shared resource amongst all people. It is our provider – for sustenance, fishing, farming and regulation of the earth’s climate. This is an exhibition that makes a statement about the unifying preciousness of water by documenting it all over the world with paintings, photography, mixed media, and installations by leading environmental women artists. 

The conceptual theme of the exhibition addresses the consequences of the human footprint globally by looking at the imbalance of the availability and cleanliness of water. We have specifically examined water scarcity, cleanliness, access, expanding deserts, urban engagement, climate change and diminishing glaciers that all reflect an unworkable imbalance. Artists included a written statement addressing water imbalance. For the visual theme, emphasis is on the view of water from a geographical perspective as well as a state of mind.  – Danielle Eubank, March 2015
