The Burgwin-Wright House welcomes artist, Marion Clark Weathers, for her show "CONNECTIONS: Rivers and Waterways" with an opening reception on February 28 from 6:00pm-9:00pm. Admission is free; the show will remain on exhibit through March 21. Art gallery hours are Monday-Saturday 10am-4pm. About the Artist Marion Clark Weathers’ paintings are inspired by rivers and waterways and the ways they connect us. Her paintings celebrate the river’s beauty, its watery reflections, and atmospheric perspective. For those of us lucky enough to live near the water, waterways are a magical influence in our daily lives. Marion's paintings depict recognizable landmarks, life on the river in general, or just people enjoying their favorite fishing spot. We are all drawn to the water. It is an important part of the human experience. When our rivers and waterways are out of balance, either by flooding or shortage, it upsets our world in catastrophic terms. We must think about how to be better partners with nature, and not just when there is an impending disaster. Responsible water management is critical to our quality of life. Weathers says: "Waterways are an important theme in my art. Since my art studio is next to a lake, this theme has naturally grown and developed. I hear my voice more clearly when I am here. I am thankful for the connections I make here, and what that means to my life as an artist."
