Water is intimately familiar to us all: we are born clinging to it and spend a lifetime wading through it at every turn. Water is so precious that even life forms that don’t need oxygen for their survival absolutely need water. The artists have interpreted their art in any type of art style and material.

*Refreshments and Wine will be served with Awards*
Special classical and jazz performances by Jennifer Jones and Emily Mazzarella
