Quincy Art Center Satellite Exhibit
Quincy Medical Group: Debbie Lutz
February 21, 2018 - April 10, 2018


Debbie Lutz (Good Hope, IL) enjoys many disciplines including the needle arts, Ukrainian eggs and more, but her favorite media is digital fractal design.

See her work now through Tuesday, April 10 at Quincy Art Center’s Satellite Exhibit at Quincy Medical Group, 1118 Hampshire St.

Fractals, a mixture of art and geometry, are patterns that generate shapes that reflect in natural phenomenons such as ferns and ice crystals. Hollywood designers use these fractal geometric algorithms to create Computer Generated Imagery (CGI) we see in the movies.

Lutz’s wants to incorporate fractals into mainstream art and show how digital art can combine math and science to create unique and beautiful images. Her artwork has been featured on the show Illinois Stories on the local PBS affiliate Network Knowlege.

Exhibits are free and open to the public. For further information, please visit quincyartcenter.org or call 217-223-5900.
