Artist Renee Hoadley’s black light exhibit at Mobile Arts Council is drawing to a close at July’s end. She intends to close out the month on a high note when she delivers a talk on the “sacred geometry” implemented in her work.
Hoadley intends to give a broad overview on the subject and the relationships she sees in everyday life. The general plan the artist relayed will cover “the difference between secular, symbolic and ‘sacred’ geometry; the Cosmic Archetypes of 1–10, as taught by Pythagoras; the Platonic Solids; the Golden Ratio and Fibonacci Sequence; fractals; the Flower of Life and Metatron’s Cube; and how geometry relates to music, religion, nature, physics, chemistry, art, architecture and astronomy.”
The event takes place Saturday, July 30, 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m at Mobile Arts Council (318 Dauphin St.) and is free.
