Fosdick Nelson Gallery presents Circular Logic exhibition

The Fosdick-Nelson Gallery, School of Art and Design at Alfred University, is hosting a new exhibition titled “Circular Logic,” from Friday, Sept. 4-Sunday, Oct. 18. The exhibit features works by Lyn Carter and Ani Hoover.

Carter’s sculpture of stretched fabric and Hoover’s process paintings explore the geometry of the circle, transforming the simple shape into complex abstractions.

Carter, a Toronto native, references the domestic and architectural, creating work that is both familiar and extraordinary. She received a master of fine arts degree from York University in Toronto. Her earlier education took place at the Banff Centre of Fine Art, Banff, Alberta, and the Ontario College of Art in Toronto.

Hoover, a Buffalo artist, uses repetition and layering to convey the passage of time.
