Members of Montgomery Art Association come from all walks of life and their artworks and creative processes reflect this wonderful variety. In this blog, we invite you to enjoy a selection of pieces that feature SQUARES. A simple geometric shape that can be interpreted and incorporated in many different ways. Sometimes you will see the square easily; other times you will need to pause and look for it. Some of our members enjoy working in a square format too. Enjoy!
