Experiments in Art and Digital Technologies
Experiments in Art and Digital Technologies Exhibition

Current works by Margie Hughto, Darcy Gerbarg, Barbara Nessim, Lia Cook, Vibeke Sorensen and Linda Law

The exhibition “Experiments in Art and Digital Technologies” will feature the work of six pioneering artists with distinct individual styles. They have been recognized by museums, galleries and institutions around the world. The range of the media employed by these artists reaches from the earliest fine art techniques to the latest digital technologies: from clay to environmental interactive video and Immersive 3D, from pen and ink notebook drawings to wall sized, hand colored printouts and paintings, from digital photography to tapestry portraits incorporating neurological data. What all these talented artists have in common is the employment of digital technology to push art in bold new directions, engaging audiences in multi-dimensional experiences of form, texture, color, and space.
