The Ann Arbor Art Center Exhibition Gallery presents Technology Configured
Ann Arbor, January 31, 2009 - The Ann Arbor Art Center presents Technology Configured, featuring artists Edward S. Johnston, Frank Pahl and Patrick Ryan Trimbath. The opening reception, which is free and open to the public, will be held on Friday, February 20, 6-8 p.m.
Coupling technology and traditional art methods artists Edward S. Johnston, Frank Pahl and Patrick Ryan Trimbath create worlds of wonderment and intrigue. Johnston received his MFA from the University of Michigan School of Art & Design.
Using photography, computer graphics, and digital fabrication, Johnston recreates the spatial makeup of the neighborhood around him. His finished work invites the audience to examine different points of view of his chosen space through 2D and 3D pieces.
Pahl, a well-known musician and artist, received his MFA from the University of Michigan School of Art & Design. His musical assemblages which are created from found objects and play a unique composition of music invite the audience into Pahl’s world of “prefab music.”
Trimbath received his MFA from Western Michigan University. Possibly mistaken as digital prints, his deliciously vibrant oil and acrylic paintings finished with resin are results of the cutting and pasting of various images with digital imaging programs.
Artist Lecture: February 21, 12:30 – 2:00 p.m. at the Ann Arbor Art Center
Edward S. Johnston will present some of the ideas and inspirations that guide his work.
