Art and Technology: The Divine Marriage

Workshops, Lectures and Demonstrations

Peter and Licia Berry, classically-trained artists from Georgia State University combine their classical art training with 3-dimensional digital technology to create landscapes and portraiture, fractals and photography in a blend of handmade and digital works. The couple will be exhibiting their works, demonstrating techniques in workshops and providing lectures throughout the community from March 1 through March 6. The public is invited to a “Meet the Artist Reception” on Saturday, March 4 from 6 to 8 pm.  An exhibit of their works will run from March 1 through March 25 at the Apalachicola Center for History, Culture and Art in downtown Apalachicola.

Licia and Peter explore the union of opposites through their couple’s art exhibit.  Emphasizing the esoteric in the mundane and exploring the sacred in the vryday, they orchestrate light in digital form to illuminate the threshold between heaven and earth.  Utilizing landscape, the figure, and other earth-bound forms, their work tends towards the ephemeral when paired in electronic media with imagery of outer space, inner worlds, and inspired realities.  The use of light as the bridge between matter and spirit, masculine and feminine, left brain and right brain examines this threshold as the center of sacred partnership, or Divine Union.
