Our SEAD After Dark events are after-hours gatherings designed to engage the intellect and build community featuring talks by knowledgeable members of our community. Wine and snacks provided. We are proud to have had Amie Adelman of The School of Visual Arts and Design of The University of North Texas serve as the juror for our current SEAD exhibit “Intersections- a juried fiber arts show”.
On Tuesday, October 17th from 7-9 pm, Professor Adelman will speak on “The History of Thread in Mathematics in Art” covering the discovery of descriptive geometry by Gaspard Monge in 1765 and progressing through mathematical models created in the 1800’s to work created by the artists from 1900-2017..
