    “People, Places and Things” 
    A Series of Three Exhibits at the Nirvana Coffee Company 
    Showcase the Medium of Digital Art



    (October 7, 2019 - Barnstable) What is Digital Art?  Three exhibits, “People, Places, & Things” at the Nirvana Coffee Company offer some answers to this question by showing the diversity possible in this new medium. The second exhibit, “Places” will be on view October 17. It will be followed by “& Things,” opening on December 12.


    “Places” highlights the works of four artists. Rob Allen creates his work on his iPhone.  His images are a collage of different scenes he has photographed, creating mood through the disjointed affects.  Barbara Braman’s work is painted on her iPad and focuses on the use color and pattern to express the changing Cape Cod seasons. Rebecca Bruyn transforms her iPhone phots into nostalgic dream-like views of the Cape’s dunes and beaches. Rita Colantonio uses her iPad to tell a story with photographs, textures, and stylistic effects. 


    The show is sponsored by Nirvana Coffee Company in partnership with Cape Cod Art Center, a national leader in the mobile digital art movement. The Cape Cod Art Center offers classes for all levels of digital artists photographers and brings in internationally recognized artists to teach workshops.
