Arts and leisure briefs: 'Digital impressionism' exhibit now open in Lakeville

  • June 7, 2014 - 2:00 PM

The work of Minnesota photographer Becqi Sherman, who calls her artwork “digital impressionism,” will be on display through July at the Lakeville Area Arts Center.

Sherman uses digital techniques to alter photographs, resulting in a saturated watercolor-like image.

The exhibit can be viewed during the center’s normal hours, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays.

Sherman’s exhibit was financed through a crowdfunding campaign, and a special “Backer Board” will be on display as a thank you to her backers.

The arts center is at 20965 Holyoke Av. For more information, call 952-985-4640.
