The “Wonders of Water” art exhibition was created by GMCG as an opportunity to examine the relationship between people and water, whether it be salt or fresh water. This annual exhibition explores the myriad ways that water influences our lives and celebrates the beauty of water in the world around us. GMCG hopes to spur creativity among participating artists while reminding everyone of their daily, inseparable and indispensable relationship with water. This process of creation can be, for both participants and observers, a chance to explore the ways that water influences their lives, and to recognize its importance as a source of personal and community sustenance, spiritual enrichment, and beauty.

Thank you to the participating artists who continue to make this a rewarding experience for all involved.
