The Electronic Artist

Detroit artist market gallery

There has always been artist willing to explore new technology.  Artist today are free to select whatever materials they choose.  It is in this spirit that Robert Martin and Jim Pallas curated the Electronic Artist making it a survey of the invention, innovation and application of simple and complex technologies.  Rather than give us a narrowly defined, fixed exhibition of the latest trends in applied technology, they choose some of the more rudimentary collaborations between science and art as well as some of the more sophisticated.

9 Afro American Printmakers

wayne state university

This exhibition is a modest survey of the contemporary Afro American print scene.  Artist who make prints are more involved with the conceptual concerns of making art than with technique.  We are fortunate we have universities that employ and promote this way of making art.  This exhibition serves as a major contribution to scholarship in the field of contemporary prints by Afro American artist.  As a participant and curator of this exhibition, I have had the opportunity to become more familiar with the artist and their work.  Many of us were known to each other by name only.  Our means of expression, the print is our common bond.

TNT concentrates on the work of artists for whom the state of mental and social unrest and the vehicle used to entice them are seen as explorations of inner visions.
