Visual artists interested in learning how to digitize their art for web and print will benefit from an illustrated talk by Rain Longson, Thursday, Jan. 10 at 7:30 p.m. at Surrey Art Gallery.
Longson, who transitioned to visual art from graphic design, will share tips on photographing and scanning art work, how to calibrate a monitor, the difference between DPI (dots per inch) and monitor resolution, and editing and backing up images.
The artist's realistic-style paintings and drawings, which can be seen at www.rainlongson.com, have received critical acclaim, and many reside in private collections.
Admission is free and there will be time for questions and conversation during and following the talk, which concludes at 9 p.m.
The event is presented by the Surrey Art Gallery Association in partnership with the Surrey Art Gallery, and with support from the Arts Council of Surrey.
The Surrey Art Gallery is located at 13750 88 Ave. Phone 604-501-5566 for further information.
