-Curator's notes.

This exhibition seeks to draw attention to our coastal environment through artwork that is either about water or created from water-based material. As a whole, the exhibit reflects the many relationships we have with our marine environment. Viewers will encounter artwork that expresses the artists' emotional understanding of or connection they have to the ocean, its force, its creatures, illusions and its myths. This is an exhibit of painting, ceramic, and mixed media, with styles ranging from illustrative and realistic to abstract.

Curated by Mary Dondero

Jim McGaw

A lifelong Portsmouth resident, Jim graduated from Portsmouth High School in 1982 and earned a journalism degree from the University of Rhode Island in 1986. He's worked two different stints at East Bay Newspapers, for a total of 18 years with the company so far. When not running all over town bringing you the news from Portsmouth, Jim listens to lots and lots and lots of music, watches obscure silent films from the '20s and usually has three books going at once. He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
