Downtowner Gallery

Current Exhibit

Water

On view June 30 – August 27

Curated by Round Rock Arts

When we asked our artist community to contribute works for the new exhibit in the Downtowner Gallery, we wanted to see what they think about when they think about water. We received such a vastly varied response. Some artists pictured the pleasure of water, like swimming holes and idyllic creekfronts, while others depicted the dearth of water, the surprises lurking within, and climate change. There is also art that conveys emotions related to water themes, for example, how do you feel on a rainy day? And still more that has a suggests a narrative — what would it be like to sip from a teacup while on a transatlantic journey on the ill-fated Titanic? Or, rather allegorically, what if you were a flower waiting for the next raindrops in order to fully bloom? Without water there is no life. Some might say the same about art!

This exhibit was curated by our gallery partners, Round Rock Arts, and features work by local artists. All artwork is available for purchase from this exhibit, except where noted.

Downtowner Gallery is an art gallery and vibrant public venue that values, promotes, and supports artistic expression.

Envisioned as a gathering place for creativity and the arts in its many forms, we welcome everyone to wander through our doors to kindle their sense of wonder.  We host art exhibitions, educational opportunities, and events, setting the scene for meaningful interactions among artists, students, and community audiences.
