Jay Friedenberg considers himself a “Digital Impressionist” because he blends computer graphic techniques with the vibrant colors and styles of impressionism. Many of his works are based on digital photographs that are then modified using software tools. The result is a unique interplay between the modern and the old. His subject matter in this exhibition is Central Park and the vast New York City skyline.
The exhibit is on view from February 3th through February 28nd. Opening: February 6th 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM Gallery hours: Wednesday - Sunday 1 PM - 8 PM
