Join us for a special event featuring the artists of ODETTA gallery’s River Woman exhibition, and Paul Gallay, President of Riverkeeper, on Sunday, April 23rd beginning at 3:00 pm. Learn about Riverkeeper’s work to protect and preserve the Hudson River, its tributaries and the drinking water for millions of New Yorkers. Attendees will also hear about the work Riverkeeper is doing on Newtown Creek and the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn and throughout the City to engage and activate communities along the diverse waterfronts of New York. This event is open to the public and will include a reception and silent auction.

ODETTA gallery director Ellen Hackl Fagan as well as the artists of River Woman will be on hand to discuss and explore the intersection of art and the environment. Guests will be able to see water and local waterways through the eyes of these exceptional artists including: Nancy Cohen, Fritz Horstman, Ellen Kozak, Kathleen Vance, Caetlynn Booth, and Deborah Freedman.

About River Woman: Elemental, universal, sustaining, beautiful, dangerous, the river and the woman merge and become one entity. Sharing a deep passion for the River Woman, our artists express their awe while raising awareness of the fragility and the amazing resilience of the rivers in our lives. River Woman will be on exhibit at ODETTA gallery from March 17, 2017 – April 30, 2017. Some proceeds from the sales of the artists’ work will benefit Riverkeeper.
