Geometrics at The Art Store

January 26, 2017 - Kimberly Bradley

 

 

The Art Store will exhibit Geometrics, a collection of works by our represented artists.  Geometric abstraction is a form of abstract art based on the use of geometric forms sometimes, though not always, placed in non-illusionistic space and combined into non-objective (non-representational) compositions. Although the genre was popularized by avant garde artists in the early twentieth century, similar motifs have been used in art since ancient times. Geometrics will be exhibited from February 11 to April 1.

 

West Virginia artist, Harold Edwards, will be speaking on his geometric works Saturday, March 18 from 2-3 p.m. Edwards’ pieces are full of colorful and precise shapes based on the Fibonacci mathematical progression which he paints on wood panels. Edwards is a full-time studio artist since his retirement from his 37-year teaching career in the Lincoln and Kanawha Public School Systems, Virginia Commonwealth University and Ohio University. He received a B.A. in Education from West Virginia State University and a M.A. in Humanities from Marshall University. He has exhibited his work in select exhibitions throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Southern Atlantic regions. He has exhibited with The Art Store since 1988.

 

Artists included in the exhibition are: Chris Dutch and Robin Hammer, David Pushkin, Pamela Gatens, The Estate of Grace Martin Taylor, Katherine Cox, Maggie Starcher, David Stern, Harold Edwards, George Snyder, Jim Gibson, Jan Griffin and Nancy Berlin.

 

The exhibit will be on display through April 1.
