A Rower’s Love of Water

Photograph from the River and Rowing Museum.

Between 1 February and 1 June 2014, the River and Rowing Museum in Henley-on-Thames is showing artwork by artist Carolina Godoy of Valdivia, Chile. She took up rowing at age 13 and competed for the Chilean national team from 2000 to 2004, taking a silver medal in the lightweight pairs at the 2002 World Rowing Championships in Seville, Spain.

Godoy said: ‘I’m very happy and grateful to the River and Rowing Museum because for me it’s a great opportunity to show my artwork given the worth, tradition and the passion that rowing leads in UK. Through my new exhibition, “Synchronos”, I want to display the many contrasts found in the sport of Rowing: strength versus elegance, shock versus softness, the calm of the steady state paddling vs. the chaos of the race.’

She has previously exhibited her work in Chile, Argentina, Mexico and Switzerland.

However, before you go to the museum, please check their website, as it has been closed due to server flooding.
