March 12-June 14, 2020

Patterns found in nature have fascinated scientists for many years. They help us organize information and make sense of the world around us. From daily sunrise and sunsets to the spirals on a pinecone, nature’s patterns provide visual stimuli that draw us in and help us examine our world more closely. Visit “Patterns in Nature” to see the artistic renderings of Evan Abrahamson, Kristine Fretheim, Kathy Strahota and Ann Solyst. In these works, they demonstrate their harmony with the universe through pattern and might inspire you to look more closely at the often overlooked, fleeting patterns all around.
