On Saturday, March 14 from 5 - 7 pm, please join us in welcoming conservation photographer Alison M. Jones to the gallery at 199 Main Street and help us to celebrate the opening of her exhibit Following Rivers.
Following Rivers, a compelling collection of giclee photographs, tells a visual story of people and the critical water issues they face, the result of simply living their lives.
After 8 years and 22 expeditions to river basins in North America and Africa for her organization No Water No Life® (NWNL), Jones has combined the power of photography and science to motivate watershed stewardship and urge support of sustainable management of water resources. Her role as ambassador for NWNL as its founding director is to document her explorations and share how grassroots monitoring, innovative technology, new attitudes and transboundary cooperation might mitigate climate disruptions affecting water supplies.
