GPAA 79th Annual Members’ Show

 

6:30 – 8 p.m., Thursday, May 11, Art Studio, The War Memorial

TECHNOLOGY in ART with Steve Miller and Ned Devine
Their theme for the evening: Digital technology is as much a part of contemporary art as it is a part of our daily lives. It affects the way we see and interact with the world, as well as how artists respond to it. The influence is so broad that we are now in a post analogue art world. Not to say that painting, sculpture, and photography are dead; on the contrary, they are augmented, just like our reality. Technology interacts with the arts in so many ways. Artists use digital components in research, creation, dispersion, cooperation and collaboration, just to name a few. Digital technologies in the arts have shrunken our physical world while expanding our conceptual capabilities, creating new conversations and expressions about how we view and create art.

Technology in Art

Grosse Pointe Artist Association has asked me to lead a discussion about technology in art with it’s members. I’m not sure I’m completely qualified to lead this discussion, but what the hell, so I’ve asked my friend and fellow artist, and high school art teacher Ned Devine to join me in the presentation and discussion. Here’s our concept:

The presentation and discussion will take place Thursday, May 11, in the Art Studio, at The War Memorial, Grosse Pointe, MI.

Alternative Facts

Here’s a new little diddy I wrote. It’s is a snarky protest song against the person who “won” the 2016 election. We’ve let the bull into the china shop.
