When studying the elements of art, you learn of line, shape, form, color, texture, and space. Shapes tend to be either geometric or organic in nature. Geometric shapes refer to those that are more orderly and rely on fundamental designs such as circle, square, rectangle, triangle, lines, etc. In this exhibit, we ask artists to explore these shapes through their work. Will you focus on architecture or go symmetrical? Abstract or realistic? Look for the companion exhibit Organic by Nature later this year!

As a companion exhibit to “Geometric by Design” held earlier this year, we now ask artists to change their way of thinking. Instead of focusing on the type of structure brought on by the focus on geometric shapes, we ask artists to explore the more free flowing designs found in nature. Open still to the full spectrum from realistic to non-representational, here we focus on the more free form designs.
