Jan 27th – Exhibition reception at 5:30PM (UTPB) | 6:30PM (ENAM) – Water Works
Jan 27- Apr 24
As humans, we connect with water on many levels. Water is vital, spiritual, and restorative. It is a commonality that connects us all, to each other, and to our biosphere. This exhibition will explore how different artists interpret this theme and its relationship in our society. With the help of these artists, this show helps us remember, imagine, and even embody the importance of water to life on this planet, and in our communities.
The impetus for this exhibition, in collaboration with the University of Texas Permian Basin’s Nancy Fyfe Cardozier Gallery and the Ellen Noël Art Museum, came from community members focusing on water issues in the Permian Basin. A national call has gone out to artists to submit their work regarding the topic of Water. Selected work will be displayed at both the Cardozier Gallery and at the Ellen Noel Art Museum’s Nelda Lee Gallery during the winter of 2022. UTPB will also be hosting the exhibition Water/Ways on loan from the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum on Main Street Program.
