The visual producer: Guest Artist Garrett Moore
Submitted By Sachie Johns
The Fremont Art Association is pleased to welcome Garrett Moore as its guest artist for the month on Wednesday, October 3 from 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. at The Fremont Art Association Centre/Gallery. Moore is an international multi-media digital and fine art artist/illustrator with an extensive background. He will discuss current quality and evolution of digital print technology and demo how to prepare art for digital printing. This event is free and the public is welcome to attend.
Garret Moore has been a fine artist, visual media producer, illustrator, and graphic designer for over 30 years. He has worked in computer graphics since 1983 and was one of the first published digital illustrators. One of the major positions he has held was being the chief illustrator and animator for NEC Systems Inc. where he produced animations for NEC Japan and graphics for software and web development applications.
Moore has a desire to infuse new visual technologies with the sensibilities of the fine arts. While still working in digital media, Moore retains his initial skills in acrylic, watercolor, pen, ink, and other traditional mediums. His interest in photography, video production, astronomy, physical sciences, and alternative and esoteric understandings, fuels his visual abilities for channeling art, image, and cultural media to reach the public.
The artist's illustrations and artworks have shown in galleries from California to New York, including NASA Ames Research Center, Lawrence Hall of Science, and Hayden Planetarium. His illustrations have been published throughout the United States and Europe for books, magazines, postcards, note cards, Album/CD/DVD and media cover designs for Classical, Jazz, New Age, and more.
Moore states: "Technology is nothing more than a tool for the artist. If the lights go out, I will find joy in the first artistic mediums as well. It is not the tool. It's the vision creative awareness affords the artist, to share and make real and positive visions for others."
