The free show featured art by more than 200 exhibitors from around the nation, who showcased their work in photography, painting, sculpture, watercolor, mixed media, ceramics, jewelry, drawings, graphics and prints. Held each May and October since 1973, the Art Show is one of the most popular art events on the West Coast.
Cris Orfescu won the First Place award in the New Media category at the Spring 2005 "Affaire in the Gardens" art show.
From the show program:
"Cris Orfescu presented a new form of art, NANOART,
a sort of digital painting which uses computer graphics and the Scanning Electron Microscope. NanoArt is the essence of the Nanotechnology ideal of the 21st century, says Cris. He uses a running slide show of his art, and will show a short movie on the electron microscope every two hours. He explains his use of the microscope in his art. As Cris says, NANOART is 'the transition from science to art through technology'. He introduces us to a world of strange and vivid forms, a microworld made visible.
Cris has a Master's degree in Materials Science, has studied drawing and architecture, and has attended fine art workshops. His body of work includes 'fine art' painting, murals, faux painting, trompe l'oeil, digital art, graphics, animation, web design, logo design, and a backdrop for a TV show."
