Digital art is art that relies on computer software to create or significantly modify an artistís work - a digital transformation of the natural world, either art created by computer graphics or images initially taken with a digital camera.

The title of the exhibition refers to each artistís unique vision, ranging from the abstract to the realistic, from black and white to intense color, and from high impact to quiet contemplation. The artwork spans the gamut from pure photography to pure computer generated composition. But no matter what the stylistic differences, all the images in the show leave a lasting impression on the viewer.
Janine Free of Encinitas creates images of urban landscapes ranging from realism to surrealism to abstract.
Arthur Lavine, a resident of Rancho Bernardo who has been taking photographs for approximately 70 years, is a photographer with an international reputation. His work, which he characterizes as "street photography," is in the collections of several museums, including the San Diego Museum of Photographic Arts.
Dana Levine of La Jolla uses the camera to search for vulnerability and beauty in people and places. Through color and composition, her photographs evoke a peaceful serenity.
University City resident Lev Tsimring's work ranges from abstract photography to portraits and landscape, but in all genres he looks for fleeting moments in which his subjects reveal their essential nature.
John Valois of San Diego uses the computer darkroom to process his photographs and computer brushes to create his digital paintings using the colors generated by the computerís light pixels."
Phyllis Weiss of La Jolla uses digital photography to capture unexpected images with an emotional punch. Whether the subject is inanimate or natural, she is drawn to combinations of shapes, colors, and detail.
