The Huntington Arts Council’s Main Street Gallery, 213 Main Street, Huntington, recently announced the opening of its latest exhibit, a juried art show titled Artie Techie, on view from July 2 to 18.
Artists were asked to submit their computer-embellished or computer-created art or video animation stills, or computer enhanced art of any medium.
Participants include David Benson, Stephen Bitel, Jeanine Boubli, Virginia Bushart, Elizabeth Cassidy, Robby Cusack, Emily Eisen, William Farran, Jim Finlayson, Beryl Garner, Joanna Gazzola, Diane Godlewski, Marzena Grabczynska, William Grabowski, Samantha Hernandez, Kate Kelly, Cheryl Kurman, Neil Leinwohl, Remy Lexington, John A. Lynch, Stephanie Marcus, Ron Merrick, Carol J. Miller, Jean Miller, Kasmira Mohanty, Lynellen Nielsen, Lisa Petker Mintz, Howard Prince, Alan M. Richards, Sally Shore, Mark Strodl, Irv Suss, Mac Titmus, Bobbie Turner, Debra Urso, Pamela Waldroup, and Nancy Yoshii.
The exhibit was judged by Barbara Jaffe, Professor of Fine Arts/Photography in the Department of Fine Arts, Design, Art History at Hofstra University. “The artists in ‘Artie Techie’ used a variety of image-making methods from across the artistic and technological spectrum, from manipulated digital prints, camera-generated images and completely computer-generated images evoking paintings and drawings. Others used the scanner as their main capture. Still others appear to be representational camera-generated photographs, but are, in fact, completely cameraless, a new technical twist on the trompe l’oeil photo-realist movement of the 1960s and 70s. ‘Artie Techie’ is a truly unique and innovative exhibition that opens a wide spectrum of artistic offerings,” she said.
‘Salt’ by Jeanine Boubli won first place. Kasmira Mohanty won second place for her image titled ‘Harrison,’ and ‘Sentinel’ by Jim Finlayson garnered third place. An opening reception will be held on Friday, July 10, from 6 to 8 p.m., to which the community is invited. For more information, call 631-271-8423 or visit www.huntingtonarts.org.
