Description

The McIninch Art Gallery, located in Robert Frost Hall  at Southern New Hampshire University, presents Fractals as a Mathematically Aided Art Form: Curated by SNHU Graphic Design Major, Mary Shakshober, from April 5 through May 5, 2018. There will be an artist talk followed by a reception on Thursday, April 5 from 5-7 p.m. The exhibition is free and open to the public.

 This exhibition explores the unique intersection between mathematics and art called fractals. Fractals, mathematically, are repeated plottings of various different kinds of functions based on a set of pre-defined regulations decided on by the artist. These series of plottings are colorized and manipulated into visual masterpieces that manage to bridge these two traditionally separated topics of mathematics and art. This is exhibit is composed of primarily original 2D works of fractal and generative art. Supplementing these pieces are the representation of other fractal art pieces used to inspire the original art work, as well as some examples of fractal and generative art applied to the sculpture realm by way of 3D printing. 

 The McIninch Art Gallery is also sponsoring the 12th Annual Graphic Design Exhibition, which will be held in the satellite exhibition space in the Learning Commons of the ACC Building which is also located on the main campus from April 5 to May 5. The opening reception for the Annual Graphic Design exhibition will be held on Thursday April 12 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the first floor Learning Commons.

 This exhibition features the best work of from the SNHU Graphic Design and Game Design Departments. Included in this exhibition are examples of work executed for an array of projects through the academic year which include but are not limited to: logo design, magazine layouts, illustrations, web design, package design, character design, environment design and animation.
