Wind over Water is an exhibition that considers art as a meditation device and/or spiritual practice.  It includes meditative works by Shelley Hoyt, Rumi Koshino, Maisin artists, Nkiruka Oparah,

Yulia Pinkusevich, Jesse Schlesinger, Elizabeth Sims, Andrew Sungtaek, Paul Taylor, and

Rosie Lee Tompkins.

The exhibit’s title takes inspiration in the above artwork by Colter Jacobsen.  He focuses our attention onto how the words and ideas for Wind, Water, Mind, and Matter mirror each other, resulting in a pulsing of being, an evocation of spiritually- or metaphysically-infused highlights of language and visual art.  Gabriela Gonzalez Leal writes, "I look at art as a vehicle for meditation. [...] It leads the viewer to reflect on other realities."  Reflect on other realities, the artists of Wind over Water do.  As well as meditate upon the one at hand.
