An Idea of Order
November 15 - December 28, 2019
An Idea of Order: The title of this juried exhibit is inspired by the poem "An Idea of Order at Key West" by Wallace Stevens. Artists have employed mathematics to bring visual harmony to our surroundings with tools such as the golden ratio, perspective and grid systems. From the intricate symmetry of Islamic tile design, to the measured drawings of Agnes Martin, mathematics can create visual harmony and give a sense of order to what appears to be chaotic.
An Idea of Order seeks work in all media that employs systematic, structure, number, pattern, and shape as an inherent component of expression. This exhibit features works that are concerned with the logic of shape, quantity and arrangement as organizing principles are appropriate, as well as works that are related to sequence, timing and movement.
