The two-artist display at the Museum of Geometric and MADI Art is an opportunity to contrast works from a self-taught artist and those of one who has studied the masters. From what we can tell, the more academic artist seems to have the looser, more playful approach while the self-taught painter has more of an emphasis on straight lines. Find out for yourself when the autodidact Ricardo Paniagua leads a salon discussion 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday. His works, along with intaglio print etchings and other works from graphic arts professor Alonso de Alba of Universidad Iberoamericana in Torreon, Coahuila, Mexico, are on display through July 10 at the museum, located at 3109 Carlisle St. Museum hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursdays; 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays; and 1 to 5 p.m. Sundays.
