On Tuesday, October 17, Advent GX (AGX) and the SEAD Gallery & Bookshop were proud to host Amie Adelman, associate professor and fibers coordinator at the University of North Texas, to facilitate an After Dark class on the history of thread in mathematics in art.

Professor Adelman, who served as guest juror for SEAD’s “Intersections” exhibit, honored us once more with her expertise as she first spoke about the discovery of descriptive geometry in 1765 by Gaspard Monge, and then worked her way through mathematical models from the nineteenth century, and concluded with a look at modern art from the beginning of the twentieth century to this day.

Served over fine food and wine, this class offered yet another in a sequence of unique fiber arts experiences for the Brazos Valley in partnership with Brazos Spinners and Weavers Guild, who have been working alongside Intersections to enrich the area’s appreciation and understanding of the fiber arts as a component of Bryan’s cultural heritage.

“The History of Thread in Mathematics in Art” marks another event in the Advent GX tradition of community and economic development by cultural exposure. By bringing new cultural and community events to the Bryan/College Station area, we strive not only to stimulate the cultural and intellectual climate of our community, but also to bring new impetus for economic development to the area.

Special thanks go to Amie Adelman, the staff at the SEAD Gallery for putting this event together, and our sponsor, Jennifer Fredericks of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate. Advent GX is honored to have welcomed our guest juror back to Bryan for further exploration on the history of fiber arts.
