“Art in Circles”

at the ARTgarage

February 3-26, 2017


"The circle is the synthesis of the greatest oppositions. It combines the concentric and the excentric in a single form, and in balance.” – Kandinsky 

Art is commonly seen from within a rectangular or square frame – even a frame within a frame as we view art via a computer, television, or theatrical stage. And yet, the circular form is a constant presence in nature, mathematics, music, art, and science. Artists who work using a circular form ask us to view the world differently – as an infinite rather than linear universe.

Work Media: Work of any media (painting, drawing, sculpture, textile, ceramic, multimedia) is acceptable. Work which is completely circular or spherical is preferred, however, work that uses circles as a primary element within a rectangular or square frame will be considered. Work must be framed, mounted, or otherwise ready to be exhibited.

Selection process: The committee will accept as many qualified entries as space will allow. Student works are welcome.
