Painter Uniquely Melds Digital, Classical to Create Mobile Masterpieces
A Thursday reception and artist’s talk officially opened “Masterpiece Mobile: Art on a Wireless Canvas,” on exhibit through Sept. 30 in The Gallery at Penn College. John Bavaro’s deft experimentation with iPads and iPhones is featured on the third floor of Madigan Library, where the space has been reconfigured to allow two multimedia viewing areas: a small flat-screen television and a larger full-wall display. “I’m a painter, but I also want to live with digital technology,” said Bavaro, a professor at Edinboro University, of striking an artistic balance. “I want to be in the middle.” Hours are 1-4 p.m. Sunday, 2-7 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday, and 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Wednesday and Friday. (The gallery is closed Saturday and Monday).
