Website: http://www.healdsburgcenterforthearts.com/exhibits/reflections-shadows

This exhibition features the physical aesthetics and conceptual connotations of reflections and shadows. The visual effects of reflective materials — mirrors, windows, water, and the projected dark shapes of shadows – can create intriguing design, trick the eye or distort our view. Artists also interpret the theme conceptually, using these phenomena as metaphors.
