Hartwick to Exhibit Artists in 'Going Digital' Show

January 13, 2010

Hartwick College's Foreman Gallery will open a new exhibit of the work of contemporary artists under the title "Going Digital" on January 15. The work will be on display through February 5 in the gallery, located in Anderson Center for the Arts on the College campus. A closing event is planned for February 3.

Hartwick College Assistant Professor of Art Joseph Von Stengel has assembled the work of eight American artists from across the country for the exhibit. They include Florida's Joey Bargsten, Samantha DiRosa of North Carolina, Douglas Gast and Reza Safavi of Washington, Texas' Chris Ireland, and New Yorkers Dave Kenny, Jim Kenny, and Von Stengel.

"I put together the show as an example of the many facets of art that contain, are created with, or presented through a digital means," Von Stengel explained. "It is a showcase of 'digital' or 'technological' based artist works that is meant to inspire and educate the students at Hartwick College, as well as the local community, as to the influence computers and technology have on art."
