DAG's members create contemporary art in digital media whether composed with fractals, painting, photography, or mixed media - sometimes presented on video monitors, paper, canvas, metal. duratrans or other creative expressions. Their visions tap into the same creative well as past and present artists, sometimes layered as collage or montage or sometimes limited to what is seen on a two-dimensional plane.
For 2014, DAG presents a juried exhibit titled Filters and Masks. Not only do we filter reality and wear a variety of public and private faces, but as artists we dip into digital toolsets that provide other ways of framing reality. Like all the arts - visual and plastic, there are multiple layers of meanings, metaphoric and literal. The artists in this exhibit play with these ideas and invite the audience to play along and enjoy their visions.
