Bainbridge Arts and Crafts presents “Digital Art - A New Generation” from March 29 through April 22.

Digital technologies are transforming contemporary fine art, having become a powerful addition to many artists’ mixed media tool kits. This exhibition brings together an exciting group of contemporary artists who reveal the inventive, multi-dimensional array of what’s possible, from collage to encaustic to prints.

Artists include Jeff Brice, Robert Campbell, Nichole DeMent, Dionne Haroutunian, Iskra Johnson, Amanda Knowles, Claudia Meyer-Newman, Barbara Robertson, Stephen Rock and Karin Schminke.

An artists reception will be held at 6 p.m. April 5 during the First Friday Art Walk.

Also on display at BAC, the art of Larry Halvorsen.

Applying his signature sgraffito carving technique to ceramic vessels, tables, and sculptures, Halvorsen uses primitive motifs to strikingly modern effect.

A gallery talk with Karin Schminke is 12:30 p.m. Saturday, April 6.

Schminke is an educator, digital mixed media pioneer and curator of April’s Digital Art exhibition. She blends technology with physical mediums to achieve luminous, layered works of art. Find out how at this free gallery talk.
