Digital fine art by VanCampen at CRAFT
Rockland — CRAFT Gallery, 12 Elm St., presents Tim VanCampen's new digitally generated works of fine art on archival rag paper. The show runs to Nov. 15 with a First Friday reception for the artist Nov. 1 from 5 to 7 p.m.
Using an Epson Stylus Pro Printer, the artist approaches the computer screen as a blank canvas, creating designs using various filters, "brushes" and archival ink. VanCampen's digitally created designs for carpets, textiles and other interior design products have won many prestigious awards including the First Place ASID Interior Design Product Award, NEOCON Gold Award and Interior Design Roscoe Award.
VanCampen attended the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and Skowhegan School of Art. His work is in the corporate collections of IBM, CIGNA and General Motors.
CRAFT Gallery also joins in the celebration of American Craft Week with a new body of work by potters Hanako Nakazato and George Pearlman. Also shown is a new panel by calligrapher Jan Owen; "Mozart's Requiem" is an homage to the last piece of music that Mozart wrote. Joining these will be a selected collection of work by other CRAFT Gallery artists.
The gallery, located in the courtyard, will close for the winter months on Nov. 15. Gallery hours are Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m. For more information, call 5940167 or visit craftonelm.com.
