Computer Art Workshop Exhibition on Display in Cape Public Library

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo.,

July 14, 2004 – A collection of student works created during the sixth annual summer Computer Art Workshop at Southeast Missouri State University is currently on display at the Hirsch Community Room in the Cape Girardeau Public Library.

The workshop, offered by the Department of Art, ran from June 15 to July 9.

The exhibition includes digital artwork created by students during the four-week course. Students explored the use of the vector-based program Adobe Illustrator and raster-image software Adobe Photoshop using Macintosh computers and flat-bed scanners.

The works are unique combinations and manipulations of imagery that were created and gathered by the students using traditional art methods during the first week of the workshop. Students took full advantage of the software capabilities while integrating photographs, textures and drawings with creative license. Louise Bodenheimer, associate professor of art/graphic design and illustration, taught the three credit hour course.

The exhibit will remain on display in the Cape Girardeau Public Library through July 23.
