Art in Focus: Digital / Analog Hybrids with Anne Spalter

Date: 05/03/2022

Time: 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm



Anne will discuss how she used cutting edge artificial intelligence to create new types of compositions–but unexpectedly ended up using familiar drawing and painting tools to realize her final works.

Digital mixed-media artist Anne Spalter is an academic pioneer who founded the original digital fine arts courses at Brown University and RISD in the 1990s and authored the internationally taught textbook, The Computer in the Visual Arts (Addison-Wesley, 1999). Her artistic process combines a consistent set of personal symbols with a hybrid arsenal of traditional mark-making methods and innovative digital tools. A new body of work, further developed at a recent residency at MASS MoCA, combines artificial intelligence algorithms with oil paint and pastels.  She is currently creating NFT artworks.

This Art in Focus Tech Tuesday lecture is co-sponsored by Stony Brook Southampton Library, the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center, and the Southampton Arts Center, in conjunction with the exhibition Techspressionism: Digital & Beyond at the Southampton Arts Center.
