July 14, 2018 - August 19, 2018

The circle is a universal symbol. It can represent wholeness, perfection, the self, the infinite, eternity, timelessness, growth, connection to the earth and the universe, and cyclic movement. Around is a mixed media show featuring the work of twenty-one Torpedo Factory Artists’ Association members. Participating artists chose work that contained circles, is circular, or has a circular narrative or elements. From the whimsical polka dot to the circle of life, selected artworks touch on the inclusion and idea of the circle in diverse and meaningful ways.
