OPENING RECEPTION:

Friday, April 28, 5:30 - 8:00pm | FREE

THE EXHIBITION

Numbers are used to quantify, rank, prioritize, calculate, and measure. Depending on their context, numbers can be holy, encouraging, devastating, superficial, or so commonplace they are barely noticed. Many works that feature repetition or are part of a series inherently reference numbers. Open to all media, The Nth Degree is a juried exhibition that encourages artists to submit work that uses numbers or mathematics. These influences can be conveyed boldly, subtly, contextually, literally, or simply as inspiration.

ENTRY FEE

Artists may submit up to three works for a non-refundable
processing fee of $35. Foundry Art Centre members may
submit up to three works for a non-refundable fee of $24.
