The School of Art Gallery at Kent State University will present “The Digital Hand,” an exhibit spotlighting the work of metalsmiths who incorporate digital technique in their design and production. Curated by Kathleen Browne, head of the jewelry/metals programs at the School of Art, the show will run through Feb. 28. The School of Art Gallery is located on the second floor of the Art Building at 400 Janik Dr. in Kent. The gallery is free and open to the public.
 
“The exhibition is a survey of the work of 18 metalsmiths who have integrated digital technologies into their art practice,” says Browne. “These artists’ engagement in digital technologies covers a broad spectrum, from using computer programs solely as a design tool to fabricating works of art using laser cutting and 3D printing.”
 
The artists whose work appears in “The Digital Hand” are Pam Argentieri, Kristin Beeler, Allyson Bone, Doug Bucci, Melissa Cameron, David Choi, Joshua DeMonte, Arthur Hash, Matthew Hollern, Nicole Jacquard, Amy Klainer, Plural Studios (Courtney Starrett and Michael Gayk), Phil Renato, Rebecca Strzelec, Kim Tatalick, Jess Todd and Linda Threadgill.
