“A Survey of Computer Use in Art,” featuring the work of more than 34 Maine artists, will open Friday, Nov. 6, and run through Nov. 28 at the Harlow Gallery, 160 Water St. There will be an opening-day reception from 5 to 8 p.m.

“A Survey of Computer Use in Art” resulted from an open call for Maine artists who use computers, software or other digital tools to make their art and was juried by Petrea Noyes of Lincolnville; and Harlow staff members Allison McKeen and Deborah Fahy. Out of 95 submissions, 58 works of art are included.

The call asked artists throughout the state to submit work that has been conceived or made possible with the use of a computer or even physical parts of a computer. The work selected for this show is diverse in subject, dimensions, construction and color — from very abstract pieces and digital collages to more traditional works.

“Once thought of as not a true creative medium, a computer as yet another tool for the artist is gaining acceptance,” said Noyes.

Midcoast artists with work in the show include Noyes, Kerstin Engman of Liberty, Terry Hire of Northport and Rick Perry of Owls Head. The show is made possible by Blue Marble Geographics of Hallowell; and supported by Harlow Gallery season sponsors and by grant funding from the Quimby Family Foundation.

Gallery hours are Wednesdays through Saturdays from noon to 6 p.m. The Harlow Gallery is a 501(c)(3) membership based arts nonprofit dedicated to promoting the arts in central Maine since 1963. For more information, visit harlowgallery.org.
