“Almost Together” The David Brower’s 2013 Juried Show

We live in a digital age, in which video chatting with someone in another country is often easier than visiting a friend across town. At the same time, we rely on physical spaces to facilitate connection and meaning — whether through a game of basketball at the YMCA, a visit to a village market, or a movement such as Occupy. What role do face-to face relationships play in today’s society, and how can we become closer in a world that privileges communication at a distance? The Brower Center is pleased to present the works of 20 local artists investigating these questions in our second juried show.
