Opening Reception – “Water” at The Smithy Gallery
The Smithy Gallery is happy to present our third and final exhibit in our 2021 gallery season, themed and titled, WATER.
WATER will begin with an Opening Reception this Tuesday, August 31st from 5-7pm. The reception is free and open to the public!
* Please be prepared to wear a mask when inside the gallery!
WATER will be an exhibition featuring artwork by both Smithy Member Artists and invited Guest Artists. Soaked in symbolism, water is not just a biological necessity, but has been imbued with centuries of cultural and spiritual tradition. Even the earliest man had a deeply innate connection to water. Cultures across the globe often imagined water as a generous, life-giving deity, but also as a destructive, unpredictable force – evident in the “flood myths” or stories of drought shared by many traditions. Similarly, we are hoping that you too will consider the many different sides and associations relating to WATER.
