Cherise GordonVideo Game Art 2

Visualizing Virtual Reality: The Art and Narrative of Video Games 

Tuesday, December 2, 2014, 7 pm

 

 

Video game art is not an aberration of art history, but rather an evolution. It draws from classical art in terms of light, value, depth, composition, movement, anatomy, and color in order to design complex characters and worlds.  In this lecture Ms. Gordon will explore the progression of concept art, development art, and in-game art by focusing on the lush graphics and technical innovation of video game artistry and design as well as discussing the most cutting-edge artists and games currently in the field.

 

This event is open to the public and all enrolled students, but reservations is required. Please email us at peekskill@sunywcc.edu.

Meet the Artist: Anthony Antonellis, Art of and About the Internet Fall2014news_p10rev2 2

Anthony Antonellis’s output is often classified as post-internet art. “net art and post-internet art deal

with authorship, usership, and originality. i view originality as a cumulative process, each person adding

their own contribution to a snowball that existed before them and will continue to exist after. As recently as ten years ago the internet could be viewed as a separate and distinct online space; today we’re approaching a ubiquitous internet that permeates our everyday objects and activities. net art, having once been distinct, is now crossing into physical space and colliding with traditional fine art disciplines.”

Antonellis has created netartnet.net , an onlinegallery listing and directory with archives of current and

past exhibitions. he has been featured in BLoUin ArTinFo, The Creators Project, and Interview Magazine as well as news outlets Wired, CneT,

discovery, The Atlantic, and BBC World service. he has a BFA in painting from Savannah College of Art and design, and an MFA in new artistic strategies from Bauhaus University. anthonyantonellis.com This event is open to the public and all enrolled students, but reservations is required.

Gallery Talk: 6:30
 pm

This exhibition celebrates the broad spectrum of digital art making that has been exhibited at The Westchester Gallery at the Center for The Digital Arts at Westchester Community College This show will feature artists from our first 10 years of exhibitions 1994 – 2004. In 1994 Westchester Community College opened the Center for the Digital Arts, as part of the Peekskill Extension Center. This facility and its gallery space have focused on exhibiting digital art in its myriad forms. Artists who use computers in the process of creating their artworks have been highlighted in one-person shows in the ground floor gallery space.

Computer Art was once specialized category of art making where artists and programmers labored to create artworks from computer based instructions. Now digital tools are ubiquitous in contemporary art. From digital photography, web based projects, interactive installations, to wearable art; artists of all stripes have embraced computer art as a significant tool in their studio practices. Social media tools, interactive sensors and digital projectors have become a key part of many art projects.
