Be Here Now presents a wide variety of types and styles of art from photography and paintings to cinematography and sculpture, all of which revolve around the central theme of being present. The exhibition showcases the work of 22 different local artists, selected from a group of more than 60 artists who submitted over 100 works of art for consideration.
