'Projective Planes' Geometric Sculpture And Collage By Topher Gent & Conny Goelz Schmitt at Coastal Contemporary Gallery 

Their featured artists exhibiting in October, Topher Gent and Conny Goelz Schmitt explore multiple levels of planes, fusing color and texture within the two and three-dimensional forms that they construct.

There is a clean, pure and mechanical precision in their work and a subtle soft fusion of organic properties. Gent and Goelz Schmitt find themselves pushing the boundaries of their materials, while remaining open to what is communicated back during their ritualistic process. Unexpected shapes and spaces intermingle in both bright colors and earthy shades, equally commanding a powerful physical presence.

The event goes from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
