Bruce S. Kershner Art Gallery Reception: Pixelated Perspectives

June 13 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

The Bruce S. Kershner Art Gallery Committee invites the public to a reception for their latest show, an exhibit of digital art called Pixelated Perspectives, on Thursday, June 13, from 5:30-7:30pm in the Gallery at Main Library.    Light refreshments will be served and the artists will speak at 6:00pm. The show features the work of Mark HannonNoah LaurentGene Moore and Peach Pair, and will run from June 8 – July 27, 2024 during regular Library hours.

Mark Hannon is the current president of the Arts Alliance in Stratford.  His digital artwork has been widely shown in area galleries.  Mark likes the digital medium for its “convenience, cleanliness, and control, as well as the ability to undo mistakes with a simple click.” The medium provides him with “an unparalleled freedom to experiment…and perfect the work.”

Noah Laurent is a researcher, artist, and member of the Black Rock Arts Guild (BRAG) since 2019.  His work has been shown in several venues around southern Connecticut, including the Kershner Gallery, the Burroughs Community Center and the NEST Arts Factory.  Noah says he aims to build experiences through his art that draw the viewer into a state of reflection and encourage dialogue around existential themes of self, technology and nature.

Gene Moore is an artist, musician and human rights activist in Danbury. He is showing a select collection of works created in the past decade using pen/pencil, paint, and a digital format. Gene says, “Besides science fiction, country, and cityscapes, I draw inspiration from the world of music, particularly from experimental and psychedelic rock and from the ‘free jazz’ movement, i.e., Ornette Coleman, Bill Dixon, John Cage, etc.”

Peach Pair is an untrained digital artist in Westport with degrees in music and psychology.  She has lived in many places internationally and is also the founder of a Buddhist foundation. She has exhibited her work in both group and solo shows in the U.S. and abroad, and some of her work appears in the U.S. Embassy in Rome, Italy, as well as in the motion picture Universal Signs.  Peach says, “I take pleasure in the challenge of creating something organic, expressive, comforting and painterly out of something wholly inorganic and insentient to achieve a graceful pas de deux between technology and fine art.”
