Upstairs you’ll find a group show curated by one of Arlington Arts Center’s Resident Artists, and downstairs they’re presenting a group photography show featuring work by their teen summer campers. Roam the entire building, get lost in Strange Landscapes, feel the Texture of the City, and stare into Light Wishes Only to Be Land.

Light Wishes Only to Be Land
In the language of painting, flatness and depth are usually opposites…
