The Riverside Arts Center is pleased to present the solo exhibition Betweens, featuring new work by Bob Faust.

In this moment, we each stand at the polar extreme of our own innocence. Between these two points lie our struggles and strengths — our fragility, fears and faith. In this exhibition Faust explores this calcified accumulation of “betweens” that keep us standing upright — through a conceptual lens somewhere between art and design.
