Internet-based work opens at CDA

BRATTLEBORO -- Internet-based artwork is the subject of a real-life art exhibit opening at the Center for Digital Art. "We Stay Connected," is a group show of four young contemporary artists who represent the growing world of net art: digital artwork that exists on websites and in social media, often made in response to internet cultures and pop culture trends and memes.

The exhibition opens Saturday at 6:30 p.m., at the Center for Digital Art in the Cotton Mill. Featured artists Simon Slowinski, Mary Rachel Kostreva, Douglas Schatz and Arjun Ram Srivatsa will be on hand for a discussion and Q&A.

To learn more about the show, visit centerfordigitalart.com.

All four artists in the show were key members of a net art collective called Tight Artists Net Gang. Visit www.tightartists.com.
