As the wild, crashing currents of 2020 ebb and a new year flows in, I reflect upon the quality of water that has been most instructive in meeting unprecedented times: Adaptability.
If ever there was a time for opening oneself to new possibilities through life-affirming somatic art, it is this present moment. I am awash with gratitude for everyone who has viewed our exhibits and films and attended our online offerings. Your participation makes Watermark Arts whole and complete.
At the heart of Watermark Arts are the nearly 60 artists whose sensuous and alive artwork graces our online galleries, newsletters, exhibits, performances, films and publications.
As our annual capstone, Watermark Arts invites you to delve now into our fourth journal, WaterSense, featuring My Body, The Wetland, a reflection on interdependence, collaboration, and vitality. In the 2020 Journal, we bow to those whose contributions made possible numerous Water Blessings, the Elemental Art Exhibits, Susan Harper: Heart of Continuum, and Materadancescapes – all included in WaterSense.
The 2020 Journal will remain available on the Watermark Arts website, along with our three earlier issues: The Artistry of Water, Continuum & Creativity, and The Creativity of Health. All of which offer potent reflections on the gift of adaptability – meeting what is.
Together, with love, we head into the unknown,
Elaine and the Watermark Arts Creative Team
