One year prior to the exhibition, and after meeting the famous artist and muralist painter Rina Lazo from Mexico City, who was the assistant / collaborator of Diego Rivera, one of the most visible figure in Mexican muralism, Gaber pursued his initiative to have his International Art Exhibit, Water for Life in Niagara Falls.
Therefore Water for Life is a continuation of the important message of the water theme started years ago through the artistic expression of the famous mural created by Diego Rivera and Rina Lazo in Mexico City.
On May 12, 2018, under the Patronage of the Mayor of Niagara Falls, the support of the elected Members of the Provincial and Federal Parliament, the Culture & Museums Manager, City of Niagara Falls, the Niagara Falls History Museum curator, International important Art Critics from Italy and Mexico, and the close collaboration of Angelina Herrera, International Cultural promoter / event Coordinator, Gaber as the Artistic Director inaugurated the First Water for Life, International Art Exhibition at the Niagara Falls History Museum.
37 Internationally acclaimed award-winning Artists from 18 different Countries contributed by exhibiting their artworks under the theme of water at the Museum.
This Historical International Premiere in Niagara Falls was a great success as it conveyed the message that water is essential to our very existence as it sensitizes audiences to this critical social issue.
