Art Exhibition in San Diego 10/4-11/15: Urban Legends and Country Tales
I recently had the honor of being one of the jurors for an upcoming fine art juried show entitled “Urban Legends and Country Tales.” This show is an international print exhibit that will be on display from October 4 to November 15, 2008 at Bonita Museum in Bonita, CA. The opening and public reception will be 6-8:30pm on Saturday, October 4, 2008.
I found the work to be very diverse, and many of the pieces really moved me. There was a mix of unretouched photographs, digitally retouched images, images created entirely using a computer, and images that had a combination of photography and drawing/painting effects (produced using a computer).
This description of the show is from the Digital Art Guild website:
