Featured Artist for March:
William Wyckoff
My Digital Wonderlands

Starting March 1st, William Wyckoff will be exhibiting his photographs and mixed media work. In his latest series of work Wyckoff has taken his love of photography and expanded that vision by creating abstract pieces that combine his photographs with other digital processes and mixed media. The original photographs are digitally manipulated through a series of computer applications, framed, and printed on watercolor paper or wood.
