MANCHESTER - The best work from the Southern New Hampshire University's graphic and game design departments will go on view in “Fractals as a Mathematically Aided Art Form” today at the McIninch Art Gallery in Robert Frost Hall.

The exhibit will be on view through May 5, with an artist talk followed by a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. April 5.

This showcase explores the intersection between mathematics and art called fractals. Fractals, mathematically, are repeated plottings of various different kinds of functions based on a set of regulations decided on by the artist. These series of plottings are colorized and manipulated into visual masterpieces that manage to bridge these two traditionally separated topics of mathematics and art.

The exhibit is composed of primarily original 2D works of fractal and generative art. Supplementing these pieces are the representation of other fractal art pieces used to inspire the original art work, as well as some examples of fractal and generative art applied to the sculpture realm by way of 3D printing.

For information, send email to or visit Gallery hours are Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. as well as Thursdays from 5 to 8 p.m. There is no admission fee.
