2 Rules Fine Art's Square Root, a solo exhibit by Pedro A. Gonzalez, draws inspiration from petroglyphs, ancient scripts and codices.
2 Rules Fine Art's Square Root, a solo exhibit by Pedro A. Gonzalez, includes paintings, drawings and prints that reflect the origins of alphabet systems, signs and symbols, evoking a primordial, yet fictional, code of communication. For these pieces, Gonzalez draws inspiration from petroglyphs, ancient scripts and codices.

Stephanie Rond’s work blurs the line between outdoor and indoor spaces, and seeks to challenge the traditional gender roles associated with each.
There is still time to see Stephanie Rond’s newest solo exhibit, Outside: In at 2 Rules Fine Art on Marietta Square. For centuries outdoor spaces have been considered a male-dominated sphere, whereas women dominated (and were confined to) indoor spaces. Rond’s work blurs the line between outdoor and indoor spaces, and seeks to challenge the traditional gender roles associated with each. Rond is a street artist. She creates her artwork using stencils, spray paint, and repurposed items. Street art is an outdoor art form; it is also male-dominated. For Outside: In, the artist creates faux brick “walls” from paper and paints imagery on top. The imagery is of women and children, a non-traditional subject for street art. The works’ textures …
