Artwork sales will partially go to benefit the SLV Ecosystem Council. The Council is a non-profit organization founded in 1998 whose mission is is to protect and restore the biological diversity, ecosystems, and natural resources of the Upper Rio Grande region, balancing ecological values with human needs.
“The show’s objective is to celebrate the existing beauty of San Francisco Creek and other landscapes through artistic interpretations. The healthy discussions of future options can only be helped by a thorough and conscious appraisal of what we have today”, states David Montgomery show coordinator and Valley painter.
ASU Community Partnerships has been a valuable partner to the Valley community for support, facilities to house public events and is greatly appreciated for their outreach, says Montgomery.
The show will be open for viewing from 9 to 5, Monday through Friday until December 20 at the Community Partnerships Gallery on the ASU campus.
