Rivers and Reverence
Hello Hoosic Watershed Resident,
This fall the Hoosic River Watershed Association and the Clark Art Institute will host Rivers and Reverence, a series of programs exploring how the Hoosic River, its tributaries, and watershed contribute to our sense of home here in the Berkshires. This program will culminate in an exhibition of 50 photographs taken by community members.
We want you to be a part of this program. Here’s how:
- Each photographer may submit one photograph by September 20 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- The photograph should respond to the idea of Rivers and Reverence. We welcome any subject matter—from landscapes to close-ups—that relates to our river or the watershed, which covers Northern Berkshire County, Pownal, and New York towns running along the river to Stillwater, where the Hoosic meets the Hudson.
- The images may be in either jpg or pdf format. A committee from HooRWA will select fifty images, which will be mounted and displayed from October 6-November 3 in the Hunter Studio at Lunder Center at the Clark. Photographs will be selected based on artistic merit and for the variety of perspectives they present. Although we can’t mount more than fifty submissions, from time to time we will run a slide show with all the images we received.
- Each submission should include a few sentences describing the scene in the photo and how it communicates reverence for the watershed.
- This exhibition kicks off a month of events for the Clark and HooRWA—gallery tours, a river cleanup, art making, and more—all related to celebrating the Hoosic and its role in our lives. We will send out a full schedule as we get closer to the event.
Please join us. Send us your photograph and tell us what the river means to you.
