Sculptor and installation artist Tanya Synar, who is a professor at Texas Woman’s University, will demonstrate techniques and talk inspiration at the upcoming monthly meeting of the Denton-based Visual Arts Society of Texas, from 7 to 9 p.m. Feb. 6 at the Center for the Visual Arts, 400 E. Hickory St. Synar’s work is influenced by science, and the artist seeks inspiration in remote landscapes to observe and perceive before beginning her work. Synar is currently working on the project Mapping Galaxies in Iron, which involves 3-D printing of images using data taken from the Hubble Space Telescope. The society meeting is free to members, $3 for visitors. For more information, visit www.vastarts.org .
