Come to "In Creased" at the Vargas Art Gallery by artist Goran Konjevod. 

An opening reception will occur on Saturday, November 23 from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.

A trained math professor, Konjevod says, "Origami has been a hobby of mine for a long time, but I mostly folded from others' instructions. Not until 2005 did I start seriously exploring the possibility of original work in origami.

"Most of my pieces so far are abstract shapes naturally formed by the tension of the paper when multiple layers of paper are arranged according to regular or irregular patterns. In that sense, they could almost be said to be discovered, rather than invented or designed. In particular, the pieces shown in my pleat tessellation gallery pages have been developed from a single urform discovered by Paul Jackson. The experience of folding these pieces has helped me begin to understand how particular fold sequences interact and in a few cases I have been able to visualize the final shape before starting to fold."

The show runs November 16 through December 12 at the Vargas Gallery in the Gillmor Center. Please go to vargas.missioncollege.edu for the latest open hours.
