Squares are a big deal. In the not-too-distant past, squares were the primary means by which we interfaced with media: televisions were square, computer monitors were square and even pictures, before Instagram relaxed its restrictions and rectangles became all the rage, were square. So show some love to one of the world’s most useful polygons at a gallery show that’s all about the square. Over 44 artists are participating, including local worthies Andrew Spear, Thomas Thorspecken, Morgan Wilson, Parker Sketch and Jaime Margary. All art featured at the show is available for purchase, and all of the pieces are restricted to a square aspect ratio. The InstaShow doubles as the soft opening for CityArt’s new Pop Up Gallery, a space for youth artists in the Central Florida region. Be there, or be square.
