BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The latest digital-art techniques will be featured in "Digital Messages 2.0," an exhibition of work by advanced computer-art students at the University at Buffalo, to be held from Sept. 3-25 in the Art Department Gallery in the Center for the Arts on the UB North (Amherst) Campus.

Technology is drastically changing the way artists work, with digital techniques providing a computerized multimedia canvas that incorporates digital photography, image manipulation, sound and video.

Unlike conventional exhibits, the computer-generated works in this exhibit will be shown as digital printouts along with on-screen displays of two-dimensional and three-dimensional animation, algorithmic process art and interactive projects.

The gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday through Friday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday.

An opening reception will be held from 5-7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 3, in the gallery.
