Del Ray Artisans' "Art Squared" Art Exhibit Opening Reception

  • February 02, 2018
  • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
  • Del Ray Artisans Gallery, 2704 Mount Vernon Avenue

The Art² (Art Squared) exhibit at Del Ray Artisans gallery explores the synergy of art with science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). This show runs February 2-25, 2018, and overlaps with National Engineering Week and includes workshops to engage STEM-interested public of all ages. Come see how creativity drives the mind to explore and inspires scientists to ask questions and search for understanding. Principles of symmetry, geometry and measurements are often used in creating beautiful artwork. Likewise, scientific disciplines can inspire and inform art, as with anatomy in figure paintings, geology in landscapes, meteorological events in dramatic compositions, and physics in 3D installations. This show is about pushing the artist to new levels of expression. Join us at the Opening Reception on Friday, February 2, 2018, 7-9pm.

The Art² exhibit is at Del Ray Artisans gallery in the Colasanto Center, 2704 Mount Vernon Avenue, Alexandria, Virginia 22301. Gallery hours are: Thursdays 12-6pm, Fridays 12-9pm, Saturdays 12-9pm, and Sundays 12-6pm. The gallery is free, open to the public, and handicap accessible.
