We face a time when our efforts to protect the environment and our rivers are more important than ever. Water and air are of prime concern. The central mission of The River Art Project is to raise awareness of the beauty and importance of the river environment and to offer opportunities to educate on how we can protect this valuable resource.
The River Art Project features five recognized painters who work with the river as their subject matter; Bart Elsbach, Mary Sipp Green, Stephen Hannock, Scott Prior and Jim Schantz.
Half of the net proceeds of each sale will be donated equally to the Housatonic Valley Association and Riverkeeper. These organizations are actively working to protect and preserve the Housatonic and Hudson Rivers.
