This show features artist Sol Hill. Sol grew up in the arts. His parents were artists and opened the first contemporary art gallery in Santa Fe, NM. Sol wanted to major in Art in college but switched to International Affairs and German Studies at Lewis & Clark trying to “do something practical” as his parents wished. Later down the road, Sol dedicated himself to pursuing art full time. He earned an MFA in Photographic Arts at Brooks Institute and has been working full time as an artist since 2010. Sol's artwork centers on working with contemporary digital imaging technology to create what he calls Metagraphs. And we'll learn more about that on this show.
This show is part of the Digital Arts Festival that is produced by Center Stage Theater of Santa Barbara, CA. The Digital Arts Festival shows stream nightly at 7pm. You can find more on the Center Stage website... www.centerstagetheater.org and click on the blog tab! The purpose of the Digital Arts Festival is to create an outlet for artists of all kinds to share their work. Because of the shutdown, many artists and performers suddenly found themselves with no way to show their work or to perform. In some cases, the work these artists or performers have created may never be seen by the public. So in an effort to find some sort of “workaround," the Digital Arts Festival was created to help artists and performers connect with their audiences virtually.
