Overcast is a multimedia interactive projection installation in which participants create generative landscapes of life by spreading projected rainfall onto a dry and barren desert valley. This project explores the endless possibilities that human influence can have to transform our desert valley once given the much needed (and often scarce) supply of water needed to produce and sustain life.

The Wide View
Co-presented with Opportunity Village.
Through Aug. 31, hours Thursdays and Fridays, noon-5 p.m.
Free and open to the public.
Mayor’s Gallery, Fifth Street School, 401 S. Fourth St.
This exhibition will display visual work in different media created in different settings by a majority of female artists participating in classes and workshops at Opportunity Village’s fine arts program. As the title suggests, the concept of this show focuses on the wide (as opposite to narrow) view of how artists in the program contemplate the natural world, from observation to imagination and abstraction. Observe how these viewing angles are non-linear or hierarchic, and multi-faceted, layered across, non-vertically. The exhibition’s positive and progressive message is that cultural barriers can be overcome. The focus is on ability, rather than on barrier-building disability, for program participants at Opportunity Village. A sense of artistic freedom can be discovered in three multi-media showcases, varying from the grand scheme of things to the specific. The exhibition is a survey spanning works from 2012-19.
