November 15 – December 28, 2019

The title of this 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.

Opening Reception: November 15,2019 – 5-8PM
