FROM THE CREATIVE TEAM

Dear <<First Name>>,

As the wild, crashing currents of 2020 ebb and a new year flows in, I reflect upon the quality of water that has been most instructive in meeting unprecedented times: Adaptability. 

If ever there was a time for opening oneself to new possibilities through life-affirming somatic art, it is this present moment. I am awash with gratitude for everyone who has viewed our exhibits and films and attended our online offerings. Your participation makes Watermark Arts whole and complete.

At the heart of Watermark Arts are the nearly 60 artists whose sensuous and alive artwork graces our online galleries, newsletters, exhibits, performances, films and publications. 

As our annual capstone, Watermark Arts invites you to delve now into our fourth journal, WaterSense, featuring My Body, The Wetland, a reflection on interdependence, collaboration, and vitality. In the 2020 Journal, we bow to those whose contributions made possible numerous Water Blessings, the Elemental Art Exhibits, Susan Harper: Heart of Continuum, and Materadancescapes - all included in WaterSense.

The 2020 Journal will remain available on the Watermark Arts website, along with our three earlier issues: The Artistry of Water, Continuum & Creativity, and The Creativity of Health. All of which offer potent reflections on the gift of adaptability - meeting what is.

Together, with love, we head into the unknown, 

Elaine and the Watermark Arts Creative Team

WATERSENSE
THE WATERMARK ARTS 2020 JOURNAL

Featuring My Body, The Wetland by Elaine Colandrea, with photos by Erik Kiviat.

My Continuum experiences in my own internal wetland,

my body, parallel my experience of being in

natural wetland environments;

each has
enriched the other.

Not quite knowing where I am going as I follow the winding channels of the marsh or the flowing movements of a Continuum exploration, I encounter a kind of dissolving. My attention becomes more fluid, going inward and outward simultaneously; the boundary between myself and the environment becomes less clear, the way land and water intermingle in the marsh. ~ Elaine Colandrea

THE WATERSENSE JOURNAL CONTINUES WITH WATERMARK ARTS
POETS & ARTISTS

I call my tide
back to this belly,
this voice, this breath,
on earth, where
I am most afraid.

~  Noelle Adamo, My Body of Water, excerpt

WaterSense concludes with our 2020 projects - numerous Water Blessings, Elemental Art Exhibits, Materadancescapes and Susan Harper: Heart of Continuum.
WATERMARK ARTS JOURNAL 
2018-2019

This is a time in history characterized by speed,
sound bites, and short attention spans.

The Journal counteracts all of those trends by presenting writing and art that invite extended, in-depth exploration of the fresh and vital waters where the stream of somatic movement mingles with that of aesthetic awakening.

We hope to pique your desire for slowing down and absorbing the Journal
as a whole, so you may feel whole in yourself.

THE WATERMARK ARTS CREATIVE TEAM 
WISHES YOU WELL IN 2021!

Clockwise: Elaine Colandrea: Artistic Director, Prue Jeffries: Creative Director,

With special thanks to our Web Wizard!
With gratitude for the incredible gift of your attention,
