Mainly Digital Art Exhibition
Exhibition of Stunning Digital Art in association with Lichfield Society of Artists
15th October – November 17th
From October 15th, Shenstone library will be hosting an exhibition showcasing the excellent works of the Lichfield Society of Artists.
We’re delighted to hosting this very modern exhibition at our art gallery showcasing Digital Artwork which sits in our brand new Coffee Shop.
Shenstone Library is always keen to support and promote the exposure of local artists both professional, and amateur. Which is why we’re so pleased to have this fantastic collection of Digital art from our local art society in Lichfield.
For a brief glimpse into the world of digital art, we asked Jason Reakes from the Lichfield Society of Artists to explain what digital is and what visitors can expect.
“The majority of artists today still use physical materials such as brushes, paint and paper, or canvas, to create art, but 21st-century creatives are increasingly utilising the technologies associated with video, cameras, television, computers and mobile devices to produce new kinds of artistic results. Digital technology has become an increasingly widespread and important part of the creative process, even for many artists who paint conventionally. The results can include digitally manipulated and enhanced photographs, images created completely on a computer,
hand-drawn images painted onto the surface of a tablet, or a combination of any of the above.
They can also include the digital appropriation of artwork originally conceived and executed in a conventional medium. The familiar term ‘mixed media’ can therefore apply equally to conventional and to digital visual art forms. Traditional boundaries are becoming blurred and, to a certain extent, increasingly irrelevant. Pigments and pixels co-exist alongside each other. Art is art.”
The exhibition will open on 15th October and will enhance the library gallery walls and be a pleasure to visit and enjoy the phenomenal work of these local artists.
So please drop in, borrow a book, enjoy a coffee and view the exhibition.
