I’m a long-time and big-time admirer of art created on iPads, as many of you will know if you’ve been a reader of iPad Insight for any length of time. So right about now I’m wishing I lived somewhere near Palo Alto, California – so that I could go and enjoy this Mobile Digital Art & Creativity Summit.
It strikes me as both a celebration of the wonderful work done by iPad artists and also a chance for those artists, and aspiring digital artists, to collaborate and learn. That’s just my quick take though – here’s a far better introduction via the organizers of this event:
Three days of FUN, ART and CREATIVITY!
The 3-day weekend kicks off on Friday, August 1st with the Grand Opening of the 2nd Annual Mobile Digital Art Exhibition, displaying the work of over 100 artists and, once again, attracting major media attention.
The Grand Opening is followed by a two-day Summit with a packed program of workshops, seminars and masterclasses attracting artists and educators from across the country.
Silicon Valley’s Creative Hub!
The Exhibition and Summit will be held in the Pacific Art League’s newly renovated historic building at 668 Ramona Street, Palo Alto, CA 94301.
Even though I can’t go to the event, I can still enjoy some of the beautiful artwork that’s going to be on display – via the gorgeous slideshow of submitted works here. The image at the top of this post is one I’ll call ‘Cellist’ and is the work of Claire Iris Schencke
Here’s another that caught my eye – a tiger with its new favorite toy, done by Billy Duron, III:
Finally, I’m very happy to see that two of my big favorite iPad artists have entries that are in contention in the Top 10 Finalists. They are Deborah McMillion (Hotel Midnight on Flickr) with The Golden Ratio …
And Jaime Sanjuan Ocabo with ‘Old Fox’:
