New Book Available in The Cornerstone Gallery

Between 2 Spaces: Reflections on the Spiritual in Art by Halide Salam, is on sale now for $25 plus tax at Bower Center's The Cornerstone Gallery. There is a limited supply!

The book was published by Pocahontas Press in January of 2008, and was nominated for the 2008 National Book Award in Non-Fiction. The book traces the intellectual and spiritual development of a visual artist living between two cultures.

Halide Salam, PhD, the juror/judge for Bower Center’s 2017 Annual National Juried Exhibition, visited with our youth during arts camp the day she came to judge. After talking with the kids, she was so impressed with their interest in the art that she donated the books asking that proceeds go to Bower Center's youth programs. The proceeds from the sales will help fund youth activities at the Center, the Summer Arts Camp program being at the top of the list.

By purchasing your very own copy, you'll get to read about the life and philosophy of Halide Salam and help Bower Center's mission of making a difference in the lives of local children with it's art education programs.
