For the Love of Art and Chocolate
"What a beautiful event"... "So much chocolate; I couldn't sample it all"... I can't believe how many wonderful pieces of art are here"... "I'm definitely coming again next year, and bringing friends, too!" These were just a few of the comments we heard from satisfied guests and ClearWater supporters. "Art, chocolate, jazz, and conservation... there's no better combination!"

Noted local landscape artist, Jennifer Kane, has created another outstanding 30” x 40” commemorative original oil painting for ClearWater Conservancy. This view is from the Sally Rothwell farm, where ClearWater and our partners have been working with the landowner on stream and buffer restoration projects to improve the quality of the headwaters of Spruce Creek. This year’s raffle will be for a 30” x 40” Stretched Canvas Giclee Print of the original painting. The original will also be sold by Jennifer, with a portion of the proceeds to benefit ClearWater Conservancy. This is the sixth painting in a commemorative series of works by Jennifer Kane based on ClearWater’s conservation and restoration projects.
