June 24 – August 5, 2023

As the humidity rises and we await our annual monsoon rains, it becomes evident that there’s nothing more universal than water, the substance that sustains life on Earth. The presence of water often has a joyous symbolic meaning, creating a feeling of pureness, sustaining & life-giving or it can be a strong natural force.  Water is also political - a major natural resource at the root of environmentalism as our planet struggles to accommodate a growing population that demands more and more.  We invite artists in all disciplines to explore water as a theme in painting, drawing, photography, sculpture and mixed media for Tierra Mojada (wet earth) - an exhibition honoring our monsoon and a celebration of all things water!
