Aqua Expressions: Artistic Reflections of Water

Tuesday, November 21, 2023 @
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Tuesday, November 21 @ 10:00 am 4:00 pm

The exhibition runs from Oct. 27 through Nov. 25.

The Next Picture Show (TNPS) presents for the first time “Aqua Expressions: Artistic Reflections of Water.” Water has always been an important part of people’s lives, both in the real world and in their dreams. It has been a social place, an object of beliefs and rituals, a geographical territory, and a tool. Artists, designers, and makers have been interested in this subject for thousands of years.

This is an all-media 2D show featuring the artist’s original, signed work inspired by any aspect of water, either in fluid or solid form.

The show is free and open to the public during the gallery’s business hours, Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., or by appointment.
