Feb 21 - Regular meeting at 6 p.m at Elm Park UMC, 401 Chestnut Street. This will be our Soup and Chili supper. Bring something to share. URGENT REQUEST - Give Jean Seroka a call @ 988-7007 and let her know what you want to bring or to get suggestions.
Dr. Taylor Hollist, “E.M.Escher, His Art and Influence.” Dr. Hollist, retired Professor of Mathematics at SUCO, will give a slide presentation about the work of Dutch graphic artist M. C . Escher (1898-1972). Dr. Hollist will talk about where Escher got ideas for his impossible objects; how he made periodic patterns of animal figures to get illustrations of translation, rotation, and reflection symmetry. We will learn why those in the physical sciences were the first admirers of Escher's work.
