December 1, 2017 – March 18, 2018

An interdisciplinary / intermedia exploration of water issues and interior waterways broadly, with content that draws upon pop cultural, scientific and literary references and merges these with sound, movement, image and sculptural objects.  The result is an assemblage of discursive and immersive, lyrical and interpretive perspectives on water.  The artists encourage serious consideration and thoughtful involvement with the work presenting complex topics with a sense of beauty, theatricality, humor, and a reserved optimism.  The exhibition will include a multimedia visual arts installation with soundscapes and video, sound animation graphics and photography, and large scale transparencies on light boxes.
The Lead Artist / Investigator for the exhibition is Marguerite Perret, Assoc. Professor at Washburn University.
Participating artists include:
Eleanor Goudie-Averill, LREI, New York, NY
