ABOUT THE SHOW

 
The Recycled Rain Project was founded by a group of watercolor artists what want to use our media to help bring awareness to the various water issues facing both our state and others abroad. (One in eight people on the planet drinks water that’s likely to make them sick. The water crisis and poverty go hand-in-hand.)
The Recycled Rain Project was founded by a group of watercolor artists who want to use our media to help bring awareness to the various water issues facing both our state and others abroad. (One in eight people on the planet drinks water that’s likely to make them sick. The water crisis and poverty go hand-in-hand.)Water is a natural resource that we cannot take for granted. There are many ways that we can use this precious resource more wisely to create a better community and do our small part for the planet and our fellow man.For our part, as a group of watercolor artists, we are dedicating an entire group show to the idea of water conservation via the reuse of rainwater.
 

Recycled Rain Show

 
The first ever Recycled Rain Show will take place in April 2012 at the Launch Pad Gallery in Portland, Oregon. All juried artists will create original works using only collected rainwater. While the subject matter in the paintings is varied, the over concept is to bring to light simple ways that we can rethink the way we use water. As part of the exhibit we will also highlight everyday ways that individuals can do to make a difference.

A portion of the sale of any works will be donated to charity: water, a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. 100% of public donations directly fund water projects. http://www.charitywater.org/
We hope to do our small part to start a greater movement to help others realize what a precious commodity we have and ways that individuals can help make a difference.
In the long-term we would like to have this project become an annual event, both here in Portland, as well as other cities across the US.
