REFLECTIONS: UNB Art Centre Celebrates World Water Day

The UNB Art Centre celebrates its 12th annual World Water Day exhibit with REFLECTIONS, an exhibit of work from 28 artists in the community, opening on March 24 at 5:00 pm. Since 2011, the UNB Art Centre has recognized World Water Day with a special exhibit or event that highlights the challenges that face society and the environment.
World Water Day is an initiative of the United Nations to bring awareness to the importance of water resources and their sustainable management. Since its inception in 1993, the project has gathered momentum and participants from all over the world, each inspired to educate and activate their communities through a variety of projects.
While only 28 artists were selected to showcase their work in REFLECTIONS, 78 artists answered the call for submissions, responding to the theme by reflecting on their own relationship with water and the waterways of New Brunswick. For some, the artwork was based on an intimate relationship with a particular pond or stream, others took a more global perspective and looked at how water is used, still others examined the various states of water and its potential. This exhibit features sculpture, video, installation, photography, and painting.
