"1-6 Point Perspective” Lecture with Artist Dick Termes

6 - 7:15 p.m.
Sioux Falls Design Center – 108 W 11th St

Cost: Free Admission

Artist Dick Termes will be at the Sioux Falls Design Center for a night of new perspectives! His one-of-a-kind spherical paintings, or Termespheres®, integrate six point perspective to create art with a mathematical flair that invites viewers into another world. Termes uses grids to show the directions the lines must move to draw the different systems of perspective, one through six point. He explains how total up, down and all around worlds can be drawn on the regular polyhedra. Join us for a design-centered conversation where Termes explains a new way to teach and do perspective drawing.
