Into The Garden & The Ian Krebs Scholarship Fund

50% of any sales of the artwork from Into The Garden will be donated to the Ian Krebs Scholarship Fund. Ian was one of my students at the East Bay Met School’s Arts Advisory. He was a lively, rambunctious, creative young man and it was a great loss when he died two years ago, just after graduating. His family has established a scholarship in his name for students from The Met School who want to continue their education in the arts. On November 22, there will also be a raffle of one of my pieces in support of the scholarship and donations will be accepted.

Concept: Water is the medium of life.
We are born from water and remain mostly water until we return to dust. Water in dynamic cyclic flow forms 70% of the earth’s surface creating interconnected patterns of life in scaled interrelationships.

Civilizations have flourished and evolved by harnessing the flow of water. Water has been essential for economic growth and has become a playground for fun and adventure. We are inspired by the beauty and sublime nature of water.

These days, contemporary water issues are creating debates over conflicting interests at local and global levels.
Concerns over enough clean drinking water, rising sea levels, powerful storms or droughts spurred by what most believe are climate change forces, fracking and energy needs, and transnational controls of water rights are just some of our worries.

  This national juried exhibition at Hera Gallery seeks a varied perspective on contemporary views of water as an essential element. Political, social, environmental and aesthetic themes related to water in all media will be considered.

  Application Deadline: Friday, February 6th, 2015.
