The Art of Preservation
October 2 through October 30, 2016
The Water’s Edge Artists will once again be presenting a
plein air artists exhibition at the Rahr-West Art Museum.
These beautiful paintings are for sale, with proceeds benefiting
the Rahr-West Art Museum and local environmental and historic
preservation stewardship organizations.
Water’s Edge Artists – Painters for Preservation – is an alliance
of plein air artists dedicated to artistically recording historic,
endangered or threatened places.
The Water’s Edge Artists meet monthly to creatively capture both celebrated and humble environmental or historically significant treasures. The group engages with one another and the public, both as individuals and as a whole, through collaboration with and financial support of local environmental and historic preservation stewardship organizations. Through these joint efforts, WEA endeavors to stimulate awareness of the need to protect and celebrate our unique, precious and essential natural resources and historic places.
We humbly thank the Rahr-West Museum and its staff for presenting this exhibit. And a special thank you to our distinguished juror, Molly Bowman Johnson, owner and director of The Academy of Fine Art, an Art Renewal Center approved academy located in Denmark, WI.
