|The Digital-Fineart Challenge|
loco su tema..." the Spanish say,
I wrote him last month to comment that the Digital-Fineart artists talked a very good game, but I had never seen any of their prints. Had anybody? Then I threw down the gauntlet: "Are they prepared to put their prints where their mouths is?!" That is to say, would they submit themselves to the scrutiny of the World Printmakers highly-discerning readership in an online group show? Harald's e-mailed answer came back within the hour. "You're on!"
Harald put out a call to his list for a volunteer to curate the show and digital artist Art Avery rose to the occasion. Avery flew into his task like a whirling dervish and put together a digital group show so fast that some of the participants nearly fell off the back of the wagon!
So here you have it, the first World Printmakers' Digital-Fineart Challenge. Our thanks to both Harald Johnson and Art Avery for making it possible.
