The 50th Hamilton Current regional art competition is a big - we mean a REALLY BIG - deal. Artworks from this year’s selected artists will be projected in wall-scale images on the Fitton Center’s exterior in an exciting new week-long outdoor digital presentation May 28 - June 4, 8:00pm - midnight. We'll also be featuring groups of artworks weekly here on the blog leading up to and during the exhibition!

On Bristol Board, Collaged images of maps were embedded in the background on which images of the birds were rendered. Prismacolor pencil, alcohol marker, acrylic paint, and archival ink were utilized to render the image. Birds were rendered on vellum with archival ink and collaged onto the image. Stenciling tools were employed for the addition of numerical elements with varying sizes of archival ink pens to create the illusion of space.
