"Water. It's flexible, tangible, and yielding.  It changes course or shape effortlessly and continues on its journey through adaptability.  It can be quiet and still, loud and raging, cold and hard, or warm and soothing.  It's reflective yet it can be a dark abyss into which light is absorbed.  It provides flexibility and resilience to the living things it nourishes, and through persistence it has shaped our landscape over time.  In this exhibit, our artists explore what it means to be Like Water.
