“Watershed Stories” features the work from two “Art as a Living System” workshops which were held in December 2016 and April 2017.
Led by Lisa Jacobson, these workshops were designed to provide a unique holistic, visual and written product based on “Art as an EcoSystem.” To do this, participants recycled beautiful old books into a retelling of water, the New York Watershed and its interconnections with everything else. Through unique expressions and experiences participants revealed detailed information about every other element in the universe in writing, drawing, painting and assembling the old beautiful books.
The two “Art as a Living System” workshops and the exhibit “Watershed Stories” were funded in part by a Watershed Education Grant from the Catskill Watershed Corporation in partnership with the NYC DEP and sponsored by The Catskill Center. Special thanks to Willow Drey Farm for welcoming us into their beautiful space for the workshops.
A reception will be held on Friday, September 8 from 5-7pm.
