Call for Art: Clean Montana Waters

By Holly Seymour
Campaign Organizer

Environment Montana is currently accepting entries for its exhibition “Clean Montana Waters.” The exhibition is open to all types of art, photography included, but must contain a visual of water in Montana, ie. lakes, creeks, rivers. Water should be a clear feature of the work, but can be incorporated into a larger Montana landscape. Iconic, recognizable Montana scenes are encouraged. We welcome a variety of submissions from all artists. We are looking to celebrate clean water in our beautiful state, and cast a light where credit is due, given this urgent time of environmental attacks and deregulations. 

 
DEADLINE: November 29th
ENTRIES: Each artist can submit unlimited entries, but each piece must be ready to hang.  
LOCATION: 614 S. Higgins Ave., Missoula, MT
HOST: Environment Montana, a local non-profit 
SALES: Artists may sell pieces, but Environment Montana is not responsible for sales transactions
DELIVERY: M-F 9 to 5 at Environment Montana office, 415 N. Higgins Ste. 7, Missoula

EVENT DESCRIPTION:

Born in 1970, the Environmental Protection Agency has lived to serve, protect, and clean up land and water all over the country. In Montana, some of our most beloved rivers and lakes have been cleaned up by the EPA.  Today, our pristine aquatic ecosystems, healthy fish and wildlife, and unbeatable water recreation opportunities are a product of this agency’s policies and funding.  Unfortunately, the EPA is under attack, and is facing critical budget shortfalls.  

To celebrate 47 years of the EPA, Environment Montana is hosting an educational art show in Missoula, on Friday, December 1st, during MIssoula’s monthly art walk.  Our goal is to use a mix of photography and paintings from local artists that depict stunning aquatic scenery of Montana, contrasted with photographs of dams, mines, and various pollutants that inflicted damage on our watersheds.  We aim to celebrate the work of the EPA through public education, while bolstering the work of local artists.
