The Flow of Dutot

Photography by Paparazzi Paul.

The Antoine Dutot Museum and Gallery in Delaware Water Gap, PA held an Artists’ Reception on Friday June 17th for the “Riv13 - Waters One” Exhibition featuring the work of a variety of artists. The exhibition is an annual event inviting area artists to share their unique vision and interpretation of the Delaware River which runs from the town of Jefferson, NY into the Delaware Bay near Philadelphia, PA before entering the Atlantic ocean. It is the longest undammed river east of the Mississippi and the largest river near the eastern coastline of the United States.

As one enters the gallery, the beauty and scope of the work presented in the exhibit overwhelms the senses as their varied renderings of the show's theme captures the viewers' sense of wonderment. A sizable gathering of art lovers along with those who hold a reverent fascination for the waterway shared their admiration of the exhibition through their lively and thoughtful conversations. Their intercourse proved to be a transcendent element of the beautiful depictions presented throughout the gallery as it inspired those who were not already avid advocates of the environment to embrace the river with their hearts while encouraging those who already share such dedication to continue their worthy endeavors.

The Riv13 - Waters One exhibition is part of an annual event created by the Delaware River Project who encourages attendees to the exhibit to explore the Delaware River through multiple artistic perspectives. Since its beginning in 2003, the endeavor has showcased the works of local and regional fine artists, poets, and musicians through a series of events dedicated to the river.
