Water Ways Art Exhibit

My Loggerhead Sea Turtle will be included in the 2017 Water|Ways H2Outstanding Art Exhibit at the 5 Rivers Delta Resource Center now through January 5 (closing reception).

“Water affects our lives, climate, agriculture, jobs, recreational time, culture, and has a direct impact on our art.  Local artists of all ages will have the opportunity to enter a contest and showcase their work alongside the traveling Smithsonian Exhibit, Water/Ways.”

I feel so fortunate to be included in this show and have my work on display alongside work from the Smithsonian! The work of 165 artists will be on display within Delta Hall at 5 Rivers. They are open from 8am – 5pm seven days a week and admission is free.

See the links for directions to the facility and more information on the exhibit.

Loggerhead Sea Turtle

These turtles were named for their large head size, used to crush shell-fish such as conchs. The most common sea turtle in the US was at one time a threatened species. Today they are protected by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature. 

I did a little work on this guy today. He will be available at Marnee’s Studio soon! Go to http://www.marneestudio.com for more information.
