Giustina Gallery presents:

It’s the Water
An Exhibition of Paintings and Photographs by Seven Artists

April Waters: Antarctica Paintings
And invited artists: Rich Bergeman, Duncan Berry, Gary Buhler, Jeremy Burke, Rebecca Kiser and Katia Kyte

Exhibition Dates: March 15 – April 28, 2023
Reception: Saturday, April 8 from 3 to 6 p.m.

In both literature and art, water is considered the universal symbol for change. It is forever flowing and can take any course. The seven artists in this exhibit focus on expressing the power, beauty and mystery of water, showing nature’s complex interrelationships. In their creative works, the artists use water to symbolize purity and cleansing. Rivers, lakes, oceans, clouds and ice may suggest ambition, tranquility and life force. We share their insights through this selection of paintings and photographs in the hope of enhancing and renewing your appreciation and respect for our world’s precious water. Through their talents, these artists offer new visions and spiritual awakenings to you.
