Jim Dryden: C=2πr CIRCUMFERENCE at Traffic Zone

October 27, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

An exhibition of paintings and sculpture by Jim Dryden.

Traffic Zone Gallery presents C=2πr CIRCUMFERENCE, an exhibition of paintings and sculpture by Jim Dryden.

A circular shape is defined by a single line – its circumference. Circle, oval, ellipse, all share this in common, their circumference defined by one line. It seems straight forward, yet this one simple shape describes so much of our lives and the world in which we live: circle of life, circle of thought, circle of time – full circle. Circles permeate our existence – from a single cell, to a group of friends, to a far flung galaxy. Circles imply connection – who is included, who is excluded, and ideally, how groups might connect and interact. Circles give us much to think about.

October 24 – November 25, 2022

Gallery Hours: Monday – Friday, 9 am-5 pm, and by appointment.

Free and open to the public.
