The Kaua‘i Society of Artists presents the Second Annual Byte Me 2 art exhibition open to all adult Kaua‘i artists.
There is a wide focus of criteria for this exhibit. Digital art for the purpose of this exhibition is defined as artwork that has been entirely or partially created using digital technology, with an emphasis on (but not limited to) the creative use of computer software. Digital art can include digital painting, digital photography, computer based illustration, fractals and digitally manipulated photographs, digital video art, fractals and algorithmic imagery, digital manipulations of traditionally created art, digital montages and collages, prints and mixed media with digital elements, computer animation, interactive installations, and 3D work with digital enhancements. Digital reproductions without substantial manipulation, or “giclees,” of an existing artwork that was originally created in traditional non-digital media are not allowed.
On Saturday, the awards were given out before a solid crowd for the Byte Me 2 exhibition. Winners include: The Paul Yardley Award in memory from Laura Yardley to Adam Prall for “Stoneship;” the Rena Selfe Award in memory from Robin and Ned Selfe to Bruce Orth for “Zitaman;” the Portraits of Hawai‘i Award from owner Carol Ann Davis to Laura Lee Leonard for “Desert Dragon Breathe;” the Olas Hanalei Award from owners Sharon and Doug Britt to Charles Davis for “Pour –up;” the Art Framers Partners Award from owners Ron Oda and Jon Tom to Debra Barrett for “Go Withing or Without;” the Hale Luana B&B Artist Award from owner Elizabeth Ferris to Lillian DeMello; the Starlight Studio Award from owner Johnathon Green to Carol Ann Davis for “Do you believe in the ways of Magic?”; Honorable Mention Artists Award to Tom Grollman.
