LOWELL'S FIRST EVER DIGITAL PRINTMAKING SHOW
AT LTC'S GALLERY THIS MONTH
LOWELL, Mass. -- From September 23- November 1, digital artwork from across the country is on view at LTC's downtown gallery. The show, entitled Digital Art: Printmaking 2013, is part of Lowell Celebrates Printmaking, a city-wide exposition in conjunction with the Boston Printmakers Biennial.
The show features work created in a number of digital platforms, blending art made using photographs, programs such as Illustrator, stills from video animation, and more. The result is an array of art that takes everyday images and turns them on their heads.
LTC's goal in putting this show together was to showcase new techniques in the traditional craft of printmaking.
The show was juried by Jim Jeffers, an intermedia artist and designer working with computer mediation, web-art, performance, photography and video in conjunction with conventional media. Jim teaches, exhibits and performs across the United States and internationally. His most recent post was as Assistant Professor of Art & Design at UMASS Lowell.
The best in show prize was awarded to Petronio Bendito for his work, Color Code 0025: Algorithmic Lines. Honorable mention was awarded to Patty Harris for her piece, Case Study No. 21_1.
Artists featured in the show include: Stephen Clements, Eileen Ryan, Dan Rocha, Mari Weinberg and Noredin Morgan of Massachusetts; Petronio Bendito of Indiana; Robert Spahr of Illinois, Cyane Tornatzky of Colorado; Patty Harris of New York; and Daehwan Cho of Idaho.
Digital Art: Printmaking 2013 is one of 8 printmaking shows featured in Lowell as part of Lowell Celebrates Printmaking. This is the only show to feature digital art. Other participating Lowell galleries include: 119 Gallery, ALL Arts Gallery at Gates Block, American Textile History Museum, Ayer Lofts Gallery, Brush Gallery & Artists' Studio, Whistler House Museum of Art, and Zeitgeist Gallery.
An artists' reception will be held on October 26th from 2-4 PM at LTC, 246 Market St, Lowell, MA 01852. Receptions will be held at the other galleries listed on October 26th as well. For more information please visit: http://thebrush.org/printshows.html
