    “Patterns” is a selection of photographs by Susan Morehead featuring symmetrical designs occurring in both art and nature. The exhibition juxtaposes cactus species found primarily in the botanical garden of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico with Persian tiles witnessed in Morehead’s travels throughout Iran. Both elements contain repetitive, mathematically definable patterns such as mirror symmetry, radial symmetry, fractals and tessellation. The resulting effect raises questions about the often-intertwined relationship between artifice, natural order and mathematics.
