Knotting Mathematics and Art: A Low Dimensional Topology and Mathematics Art Conference presents an unprecedented occasion for a demonstrating the connection between mathematics and art in a serious and unique way to matrix of diverse communities both academic and general. By integrating the themes of mathematics and art in both conference content and in the exhibition presentation, we have an opportunity to bring to the Tampa Bay Area a unique and powerful model for promoting the connection between mathematics and art. The curatorial motivation is to re-enforce these connections by presenting the most relevant artists whose work inform and frame the theme of the conference. To do this we have organized a series of three mathematical art exhibitions that focus on mathematical fine art, visual mathematics and students works. This group of exhibitions functions to reach a wide community with special interest for mathematicians, scientists, artists, mathematics and art teachers and educators.
Centre Gallery Oct 22 – Nov 4th
The work for this exhibit will feature two-dimensional and sculptural works by established MathArtists. The exhibition would include the followings artists: Brent Collins, Helaman Ferguson, Mike Fields, Bathsheba Grossman, George Hart, Charles Perry, Tony Robbin, and John Sims.
