This is also the story of water and how we both manage and mismanage it. From Hetch Hetchy, to the Colorado River, on to the Salton Sea and the Yallahs River, what have we lost and what have we gained?
Now comes this, China’s Three Gorges Dam.

Kay Rodriques, Northern California (U.S.A.)
Kay Rodriques is a multimedia artist and naturalist. She experiments with various materials -- organic and recyclable -- to create texture in her works. She also experiments with light modeling clay and paste to add dimension to her paintings and collages.
Kay is concerned with absences and presences in history, art and nature. Her work is often whimsical, abstract and figurative.
As a naturalist, Kay is constantly engaged with nature. A great deal of her work is derived from her joy of living in the Bay Area, and also from her love of her native Jamaica.
