In this juried exhibition, artists explore the concept of a reflecting pool. Inspired by the feature found commonly in landscape design, a reflecting pool offers an illusory sense of depth and clarity by reflecting its surroundings, yet literally consists of a shallow pool of water.  In playful dialogue with the myth of Narcissus and Echo, this exhibition questions self-perception in the digital age and how to achieve clarity about oneself amidst a world of distortion. Working in a variety of mediums, each artist explores territories of the collective psyche that reflect the self in the form of a landscape or an abstraction.
