The Howard County Arts Council announces a new exhibit in the galleries at the Howard County Center for the Arts. In Digital Disclosure: UMBC Faculty Perspectives, three UMBC art faculty members - Vin Grabill, Neal McDonald, and Steven Silberg - achieve creative expression via modern digital technologies. Grabill started out as a painter and now uses video to paint in time, yet keeps his attachment to the static image with digital prints related to his videos. McDonald explores the process of drawing and traditional printmaking by writing a series of computer programs that interpret photographic data into unique, generated prints. Finally, the pixel is Silberg's primary tool, which he uses to explore photography, video, and movement, one pixel at a time.
