Camarillo, CA - The Art program at CSU Channel Islands (CI) invites the public to “Pixels & Plastic,” a student exhibition featuring digital artworks in illustration, portraiture, 3D animation, and 3D printing. The show is on view at the CI Palm Gallery in Camarillo through Thursday, Nov. 20. The artists invite the public to join them for a closing reception at the gallery on Thursday, Nov. 20, from 6 to 8 p.m. to discuss and explore the exciting world of digital art.

“Pixels & Plastic” features more than 50 student artworks created using digital tools, ranging from portraits, movie posters, 3D computer animation, and 3D-printed plastic models, presented in print and on screen throughout the gallery. The works were created by students in Art 316 Digital Illustration & Painting and Art 326 Digital Media Arts: 3D Computer animation, two classes taught by artist and CI Art Program faculty member Aldo Figueroa.

“Pixels & Plastic” is a fascinating student exploration of film, video games and the existence of portraiture in the digital realm,” Figueroa said. “We hope members of the campus and community will join us at the closing reception to see the students’ creativity and share in their excitement for the interplay between art and digital media.”

Located at 92 Palm Drive in Old Town Camarillo, the CI Palm Gallery is open and free to the public Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For additional information, contact the Art program at 805-437-2772 or
