The Pemaquid Watershed Association is hosting an exhibit of photographic artwork by Katharine “Katie” Leigh Cellana, of Rockland, in its office gallery through Friday, March 31.
The theme of Cellana’s exhibit is “Life Blood,” in tribute to Pemaquid Watershed Association and in honor of the Native American people in North Dakota. In some Native American tribes ‘Life Blood’ means water because it is essential for every living creature.
The exhibit features the natural beauty and the spirit of nature. Cellana loves photographing wildlife – birds in particular. She likes to capture the magic of this world in her photos to inspire everyone that they can create their own magic in their lives.
The purpose of art exhibits at Pemaquid Watershed Association’s office gallery is to mutually benefit the artist and PWA. The shows provide an opportunity for the artist to gain local exposure for their works that depict the beauty of the natural environment while being an attraction to bring people into the office to learn about PWA’s mission.
Cellana is donating a generous portion of the proceeds from exhibit sales at the office gallery to PWA.
Since 1966, Pemaquid Watershed Association has been a member-supported, volunteer-driven nonprofit organization. PWA’s mission is to conserve the natural resources of the Pemaquid Peninsula region through land and water stewardship and education.
The PWA is located at 584 Main St. in Damariscotta. For more information, call 563-2196 or go to pemaquidwatershed.org.
