If you are interested in art as advocacy, water issues and sustainability this is a happening for you!

“Talking Water” is a casual discussion with students, artists and environmentalists around the “STILL WATER” exhibition–anyone can take part in the conversation.

In conjunction with the “Still Water” exhibition, the Dalton Gallery presents “Talking Water,” an evening of discussion about artmaking and advocacy. Local artists from the exhibition along with students and environmentalists Shana Udvardy of the Georgia Conservancy & Jim Abbot of the Ogeechee Riverkeeper will be in attendance.

Exhibited artists include:
Linda Armstrong (GA), Linda Gass (CA), Mandy Greer (WA), Steve Jarvis (GA), Kathryn Kolb (GA), Michael Murrell (GA), William J. Nixon (GA), Aviva Rahmani (NY & ME), Jeff Rich (GA), Lauren Rosenthal (PA), Steven Sachs & Rebecca Des Marais (GA), Katherine Taylor (GA), Patricia Tinajero (TN via Ecuador), Stan Woodard (GA), Tom Zarrelli (GA)

Shana Udvardy is the Georgia Conservancy’s Water Program Manger and has been involved in state and regional initiatives to protect Georgia’s water quality and quantity.

Jim Abbot is chairman of Ogeechee Riverkeeper, a nonprofit advocacy organization that he co-founded. Located in Statesboro, Georgia, the Ogeechee Riverkeeper belongs to the international Waterkeeper Alliance and is a lead organization within the 165-member Georgia Water Coalition. Abbot is an adjunct professor of classics at Agnes Scott, where he has also been a director of foundation and corporate relations and assistant dean of the College.


This event is co-organized by the Dalton Gallery & the Office of Sustainability.

"Ecological Art is an art practice, often in collaboration with scientists, city planners, architects and others, that results in direct intervention in environmental degradation. Often, the artist is the lead agent in that practice." —Aviva Rahmani
