It is with great excitement that the leadership and members of Water’s Edge
Artists would like to inform you that the Wisconsin Nature Conservancy has been
selected for our 2014 Partnership Award! Annually, Water’s Edge Artists seeks
to find a preservation minded organization with a vision that is similar to ours.
This year, Water’s Edge Artists has chosen the Wisconsin Nature Conservancy
for this honor!
We are “Painters for Preservation!” Water’s Edge Artists is an alliance
of plein air artists dedicated to artistically recording historic, endangered or
threatened places. Water’s Edge Artists meet monthly to creatively capture both
celebrated and humble environmental or historically significant treasures. The
group engages with one another and the public, both as individuals and as a
whole, through collaboration with and financial support of local environmental
and historic preservation stewardship organizations. Through these joint efforts,
WEA endeavors to stimulate awareness of the need to protect and celebrate
unique, precious and essential natural resources and historic places.
