Fall Art Exhibition Reception
Margaret Kepner: PATTERNS+COLORS+SHAPES
Thursday, September 14, 2017 (Evening)
TIME: 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm, Ballroom
TYPE: Art Exhibition Reception
Margaret’s work involves the artistic expression of logical systems through attributes such as pattern, color, and shape. Her math background yields a rich supply of subject matter to explore, including puzzles and games. Her interest in art provides a visual vocabulary and cultural references. She enjoys combining ideas from seemingly unrelated areas. For example, the solution to a puzzle may be translated into colors and shapes to produce a design suggesting a traditional quilt pattern. In the current WNDC exhibition, Margaret Kepner presents a selection of her prints, all of which derive from mathematical concepts transformed into a highly individual and multilayered art form.
Margaret Kepner is an artist living in Washington, DC. She has always been inspired by the beauty of art and the logic of mathematics. As a child, she so loved drawing intricate geometric patterns, it was predicted she would grow up to ‘design wallpaper.’ Margaret attended Vassar College, where she majored in Mathematics with minors in Art and Physics. Following a fellowship in Europe, she earned a Masters Degree in Mathematics from New York University. Margaret’s career has included a variety of positions: radio astronomer, high-school math teacher, computer programmer, and information systems manager at an international institution. Recently, she has had more time to concentrate on her lifelong interest in developing connections between mathematics and art.
