at SKIDMORE COLLEGE, SCHICK ART GALLERY
April 20 - May 21, 2004
Opening Reception: April 20 at 6;30 pm
Digital Selections is an exhibition of work by artists
who create in the digital realm. Software and technology
have opened up new creative opportunities for artists.
Images that could not possibly be created by hand are
now possible, as are new explorations into animation,
sound and interactive art. Digital art is also becoming
an important part of contemporary art. While painting,
drawing and sculpture will remain at the core of traditional
fine art, new tools are revolutionizing how artists think
and work. Artists of the future will never have known
a world without computers and technology.
|For them, using digital tools to create
their work will not be unusual. We are now at a pivotal time
in contemporary art and this exhibition helps lead the way for
the art of the future. As part of the New York Digital Salon
Touring Program, it also supports our mission of developing
an international appreciation and understanding of digital art.
The New York Digital Salon, founded in 1993, is dedicated to
the exhibition, study and promotion of digital art in all its
genres. Increasingly recognized as a significant force for digital
art, the Salon hosts an annual touring program, which features
exhibitions, educational and public programs, and a Web site
which serves as an online resource for digital art.
