Pattern: Riverside Gallery exhibition - Fri 05 Jul 2019 -Sun 01 Sep 2019

Riverside Gallery. Open daily 10am-5.30pm. Free entry

A ‘maximalist’ exhibition showing a wide range of patterns!

An exhibition of mixed media craftwork by Devon Guild Members showing a riotous mixture of patterns, set against a vibrant feature wall of graffiti.

To be found everywhere we look - pattern ‘repeats in a predictable manner’, as in wallpaper, but can be subverted or changed according to the whims of the designer. Creating a pattern can be harder than you’d think, and is a brilliant challenge for a craftsperson's design skills - whether it's something they work with on a daily basis, or more rarely...

What is pattern: (definition)?
In visual art, pattern consists of regularity which in some way "organizes surfaces or structures in a consistent, regular manner." At its simplest, a pattern in art may be a geometric or other repeating shape, but a pattern need not necessarily repeat exactly as long as it provides some form or organizing "skeleton" in the artwork. In mathematics, a tessellation is the tiling of a plane using one or more geometric shapes (which mathematicians call tiles), with no overlaps and no gaps.
