McMurtrey Gallery is excited to introduce Catherine Colangelo's exhibit Ocular Rhythms. Inspired by textiles, Indian and Islamic miniatures, and illuminated manuscripts, Colangelo creates stunning works on paper:

 

"When I look at patterns from many different cultures, locations and time periods, I frequently notice the repetition of forms and shapes. There seems to be something deep within our human nature that compels us to ornament using the repetition of shape and color. Working with only my hands and my materials, I associate the work with traditions that existed long before my time."
