Juried Exhibition - An Idea of Order - Juror Joe Chesla

The title of this exhibit is inspired by the poem "An Idea of Order at 
Key West" by Wallace Stevens. Artists have employed mathematics to bring 
visual harmony to our surroundings with tools such as the golden ratio, 
perspective and grid systems. From the intricate symmetry of Islamic 
tile design, to the measured drawings of Agnes Martin, mathematics can 
create visual harmony and give a sense of order to what appears to be 

An Idea of Order seeks work in all media that employs systematic, 
structure, number, pattern, and shape as an inherent component of 
expression. Artworks that are concerned with the logic of shape, 
quantity and arrangement as organizing principles are appropriate, as 
well as works that are related to sequence, timing and movement.
