“WATER FOR LIFE” INTERNATIONAL ART EXHIBIT, PARTICIPATING ARTIST ANNOUNCEMENT

 

Niagara Falls, ON, December 14, 2017 – The Niagara Falls History Museum is honoured to announce the names of the artists involved in this summer’s International Art Exhibition titled “Water for Life”. The distinguished artists were selected based on their recognition by international art critics and their award-winning works. A complete list of artists can be found on the Museum’s website – https://niagarafallsmuseums.ca.

The Artistic Director, internationally renowned artist Antoine Gaber, and the International Cultural Promoter Angelina Herrera are working closely with the Museum to create an exhibition that will showcase works from 37 artists representing 18 different countries.

The aim of this exhibition is to raise awareness about the lack of clean water around the world. The artworks exhibited will represent a variety of media including painting, photography, digital art, sculptures and installations all surrounding the theme of water. Niagara Falls is a logical location to bring awareness to the fact that a large proportion of the world’s population does not have access to clean water, while here in Niagara we witness the benefits of fresh water on a grand scale every day.

“The Museum is thrilled to host an exhibition that brings artists from around the world together to highlight such an important global issue” says Suzanne Moase, Niagara Falls Museums Curator. “It is exciting to present an International Art Exhibition that examines a topic so directly related to this City’s iconic natural wonder.”

“Water for Life” opens to the public on May 12, 2018 at the Niagara Falls History Museum, 5810 Ferry Street.
