Sacred Geometry’ to Open Eastern Art Gallery

February 1 @ 8:00 am - March 7 @ 5:00 pm

WILLIMANTIC, CT (02/01/2019) The Art Gallery at Eastern Connecticut State University will open its first exhibition of the spring 2019 semester from Feb. 1-March 7. “Sacred Geometry: The Perfect Proof” features the work of mixed-media artist Reni Gower. A talk with the artist will occur on Feb. 12 from 3-3:45 p.m., followed by an opening reception from 4-6 p.m. The gallery is located in room 112 of the Fine Arts Instructional Center. Admission is free.

“Sacred Geometry” consists of large singular “papercuts,” which are complex patterns inspired by Celtic knotwork and Islamic ornamental tiles, and are hand cut from single sheets of paper. Gower was inspired by sacred geometry, a concept from ancient times that derives meaning from perfect shapes such as circles, squares and triangles. In her work, Gower hopes to use the universal language of sacred geometry to connect Western and Middle Eastern artistic legacies with hope and optimism.

Gower’s work has beeen featured in venues across the United States, as well as internationally, in such countries as Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Australia, Italy, Peru, Korea, Israel, England and Russia. She’s received numerous grants and awards, including the Southeastern College Art Conference Award for Outstanding Artistic Achievement in 2017.

Eastern’s Art Gallery hours are Tuesday and Wednesday 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Thursday 1-7 p.m., Saturday and Sunday 2-5 p.m. All events are free and open to the public. For more information, visit www.easternct.edu/artgallery or call (860) 465-4659.
