Alberta Geometry : Open Provincial Call

The Alberta Society of Artists invites all visual artists in Alberta (must be 18 years of age or older) to submit to the exhibition, Geometry.

We know that line, shape, form, pattern, symmetry, scale, and proportion are the building blocks of both art and math. Geometry offers the most obvious connection between the two disciplines. Our theme challenges the artist to explore the parallels in their own work between geometry and art.
