"Water is the substance that allows all life on our planet to exist. Earliest man first settled near shorelines and built our first communities and with that our earliest artists began to record their impressions of the wonders that water held - both as a life necessity and an object of beauty", William Grabowski, curator of Art-trium Gallery, The "WaterWorld" exhibit gives Huntington Arts Council member artists, Sang Hung Chung, Shawn McAvoy, Teri Herzog, David Jaycox Jr. and Robert R. Weiss the opportunity to use their skills to interpret many of the ways water engages our lives.
