The Waterworks Art Project
The Waterworks Art Project, sponsored by York Water Co. and Wilmington Trust, is a collaboration between York Water Company and Creative York to celebrate York Water Company’s 200 year anniversary in a creative, engaging, community-oriented way. The project has three pillars:
The Aquanaut Exhibit
York Water Co. and Creative York present The Aquanaut Exhibit. Water covers our planet. It makes up most of our body. And it is woven into the fabric of our memories. From happy sandcastle building as children to dark walks by the riverbank to sailing down the bay, water is present in our past in a way that no other natural element can ever be. Join us as we explore the shifting tides of memory in Aquanaut, on display in the Kerlin Gallery June 30 – September 17. Opening reception will be held 6–8pm on June 30.
Plein Air Picnic
“Plein air painting” is a phrase borrowed from the French. It means “open air” and is used to describe the act of painting outdoors. Thanks to the sponsorship of our friends at York Water Co., we will be hosting a late afternoon Plein Air Picnic on Wednesday, August 17th at Lake Williams! Artists will paint outdoor scenes at the lake, then the artwork will be displayed for the public at York Water Co.’s corporate building, with an opening reception September 22. Light refreshments are included, but artists must provide their own supplies. All mediums are fine! This program is FREE, registration is required. REGISTER
Paint with Water Family Activity Nights
Join us as we splash, drip, play and paint with water! Creative York, in conjunction with York Water Co., present the FREE Paint with Water Family Activity Night series. We’ll be out in front of our main location at 10 N. Beaver St. exploring all the fun possibilities of mixing water with pigment. Don’t worry – it dries fast! The Paint with Water Family Activity Nights will be held from 5–8pm on Friday, June 3, Friday, July 1, and Friday, August 5. These events are especially good for ages K-5th grade.
No RSVP required!
