The Art2 (Art Squared) exhibit at Del Ray Artisans gallery explores the synergy of art with science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). This show overlaps with National Engineering Week and includes workshops to engage STEM-interested public of all ages. Come see how creativity drives the mind to explore and inspires scientists to ask questions and search for understanding. Principles of symmetry, geometry and measurements are often used in creating beautiful artwork. Likewise, scientific disciplines can inspire and inform art, as with anatomy in figure paintings, geology in landscapes, meteorological events in dramatic compositions, and physics in 3D installations.

Join us at the opening reception on Friday, February 2 from 7-9pm to view the art and meet the curators, artists, and other art appreciators.

The Art2 art exhibit runs February 2-25, 2018 at Del Ray Artisans gallery in the Colasanto Center, 2704 Mount Vernon Avenue, Alexandria, Virginia 22301. Gallery hours are: Thursdays 12-6pm, Fridays 12-9pm, Saturdays 12-9pm, and Sundays 12-6pm. The gallery is free, open to the public, and handicap accessible.
