YELLOW SPRINGS — Village Artisans Gallery is hosting “The Shade of Water: The Importance of Clean Water” – A Members’ Show Thursday, Feb. 14 through Monday, April 1 in their Lobby Gallery during regular gallery hours.

An Artists’ Reception will be held 6-9 p.m. Friday, March 15. Both the exhibit and the reception are free and open to the public.

Water is life and to remind ourselves of the importance of water, World Water Day is celebrated each year on March 22. Natural resource activists all over the world gather and network to educate, enlighten and celebrate humans’ need for access to clean water as a vital part of our daily lives.

On this note, Village Artisans Gallery is challenging members to create artwork of a watery nature — in a variety of media — with the goals of reflecting water’s beauty and reaffirming the importance of protecting our precious resource both locally and globally. Come visit the gallery to see what kind of art “The Shade of Water” will inspire.

It is located at 100 Corry St. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 12-5 p.m. Sunday.
