ABOUT THE PROJECT

The Recycled Rain Project was founded to help bring awareness to local artists and the various water issues facing both our state and other’s abroad.

The Fourth Annual Recycled Rain Project opens May 9th 2015 at the Olympic Mills Gallery Space in Portland, Oregon.  All juried artists will create original works with collected rainwater. While the subject matter in the paintings is varied, the over all concept is to bring to light simple ways that we can rethink the way we use water.

As part of the exhibit we will also highlight everyday things that individuals can do to make a difference. A portion of the sale of any works are donated to a water-based charity. We hope to do our small part to start a greater movement to help other’s realize what a precious commodity we have and ways that individuals can help make a difference here and abroad.

For RR 2013  we were able to add a children’s component to RR with the addition of RAINDROPS – a children’s gallery.  Now in our fourth year we want  to continue help educate children on the environment and bring them closer to art.

We are currently seeking classroom partners. Please contact sara@therecycedrainproject.org for more information regarding a classroom collaboration.

In RR 2014 we added Featured Artists along with the Open Call portion of the show. These Featured artists are working artists in the Portland Area that have demonstrated a dedication to the environment as well as their profession. Each artist is selected by a jury of artists and people from within the art community.
