Magical Geometry

28 January – 25 March 2017

What do we think of when we hear the word geometry? A sharp shape and a clean line?

Works produced with a ruler and a steady hand certainly feature in this group show, but visitors will also discover pieces that play with the dynamic qualities associated with this ancient term.

The resulting exhibition is a celebration of shape, symmetry and pattern – the mysterious magic of geometry.

Exhibiting artists: Emma Bennett, Louisa Chambers, Damian Cruikshank, Stephen Cunliffe, Lisa Jones, Collette  Lilley, Jim Milner, Arthur Roberts and Jason Thompson.

Opening event: Saturday 28 January. Visit to enjoy free, family friendly activities.
