The Schneider Museum of Art this fall will present Breaking Pattern, an exhibition curated by Matthew Deleget and Rosanna Martinez of the Brooklyn-based gallery Minus Space. 

The exhibition, which will be on view Oct. 2 through Dec. 5, will highlight several generations of artists whose works investigate and advance the discourse around pattern, optical and perceptual abstract painting. A reception, open to the public, is scheduled for 5-7 p.m. Oct. 1 at the Schneider Museum of Art, 1250 Siskiyou Blvd., on the Southern Oregon University campus.

Three free family days will accompany the fall exhibition: Oct. 4, Nov. 7 and Dec. 5, each from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The museum will also hold educational tours for the public on Tuesdays at noon.

The Schneider Museum of Art is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Admission is free, but the suggested donation is $5. For more information go to sma.sou.edu.
