Stockbridge, MA–The River Art Project: Celebrate the River and Art @ Stockbridge Station
Jun 9 @ 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm

About the River Art Project at Stockbridge Station–
We face a time when our efforts to protect the environment and our rivers is more important than ever and water and air are of prime concern. Artist and gallerist Jim Schantz has organized an art exhibition for this summer that will honor the river. The River Art Project is an exhibition that features several nationally recognized painters who work with the river as their subject matter including; Bart Elsbach, Mary Sipp Green, Stephen Hannock, Scott Prior, and Jim Schantz.

The exhibition will take place June 9- September 4, 2017 at the Stockbridge Station gallery space.

The central mission of this exhibition project is to raise awareness of the beauty and importance of the river environment and offer opportunities to educate on how we can protect this valuable resource. The four month exhibition will include an educational component to present programs with environmentalists who can speak about protecting our water and air, and offer ways to be proactive in this regard. Additionally, half of the net proceeds of the sale of each painting will be donated equally to the Housatonic Valley Association and Riverkeeper. These organizations are actively working to protect and preserve the Housatonic and Hudson Rivers.
