Virtual art exhibit to highlight local water industries, waterways

In a joint effort between the Suffolk Art Gallery and the Suffolk Art League, they will virtually present their annual spring art exhibit, “Waterworks,” which will highlight local water industries and waterways.

The virtual exhibit will open Saturday and run through June 5.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the exhibit will be virtual, and will be shared by Suffolk Parks & Recreation and the Suffolk Art League on their respective Facebook and Instagram pages, as well as their websites.

Photographer Glen McClure, watercolor and acrylic painter James Warwick Jones, oil painter Barbara Harris and photographer Suzanne Pruitt are among the artists included in the Waterworks exhibit, which was created as part of the 125th anniversary of the Suffolk Literacy Club program for environmental awareness and appreciation of the Chesapeake Bay.
