Two new visual art exhibitions open at the Shemer Art Center from August 31 to October 31. 27.

Geometric Repetitions, an exhibit curated by Matt Magee, features artwork created by 37 Arizona artists that focus on geometric patterns that occur in math, science, textiles, and nature. This themed exhibition features 59 works of art, created in a variety of mediums from graphite to wood carvings, as well as a work of juror art.

Two Voices, a solo exhibition, features 11 acrylic and mixed media abstract paintings created by Arizona artist Mary Ellen Mittelstaedt.

Both of these exhibitions are open to the public and showcase a wide variety of mediums in the main entrance and gallery rooms.

The Shemer Art Center was the very first house built in Arcadia. Originally built in 1919, it was purchased in 1984 by Martha Shemer, who donated it to the City of Phoenix. Today, the Shemer Art Center is a “house of the arts”. It is a warm and inviting place where visitors can enjoy, experience and learn about the visual arts through classes, workshops, lectures, artist cafés, exhibitions and events.
