June 26, 2012 - PRLog -- San Francisco, Calif., June 25, 2012 – Work by twenty one members of the Bay Area Photographers Collective has been chosen for an exhibition entitled “WaterWorks,” to be shown at ARC Studios and Gallery.

“WaterWorks” will open on July 7, with an Artists’ Reception from 7 to 9 PM. The show will run through July 28, 2012.

Curator for the show is Ed Carey, Director and Owner of Gallery 291.

Discussing the theme for the exhibit Carey said, “Few subjects in art history have been portrayed more frequently than water. From primitive cave drawings to the water wall in Bill Viola’s ‘Ocean Without a Shore’ video, water has captured the artistic imagination.

It is not difficult to understand the artist’s attraction. Water is beautiful, awe-inspiring, universal, mesmerizing, mutable, life giving and life sustaining, a source of recreation and pleasure, a luxury and a scarce and sacred resource. Our affinity to water is visual, sensual and tactile. And it is also essential. Our blood is chemically similar to seawater. Our bodies, like the surface of the planet, are both about sixty-five percent water. And our life form originated in water. We wonder how the meanings we find in these water images resonate with our eternal longing to return to our original habitat – the sea.”

Ed Carey will give a talk on the exhibition “WaterWorks,” on July 28, 3 to 5 PM.
