Professor Sean Hovendick's interactive artwork Be A Man / Sugar And Spice, recently exhibited in The Sage Colleges' Visual Arts Faculty Exhibition, has been selected for the national juried exhibition X by Y: Digital Art in 2010 at UNC Pembroke.

From over 100 works of art submitted, Professor Hovendick's work was one of only 15 chosen for the exhibition which includes a wide range of art such as large-scale digital prints, interactive media and site-specific multimedia installations.

Using digital technology can be a seductive process, sometimes at the expense of content juror Peter Patchen said. As I explored the entries, I looked for work that was not only aesthetically interesting but conceptually intriguing. Being a digital show, I also looked for work that placed that technology at the service of an idea in a meaningful way." A digital artist himself, Patchen is the chair of the Digital Arts program at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY.

X by Y: Digital Art in 2010 opens on March 17th and will be on display until April 7th at the University of North Carolina's A.D. Gallery in Pembroke, North Carolina.
