New exhibit in Rock Hill features work by former university president

Misty Morning on the Burgundy CanalThe Arts Council of York County's first exhibit of 2014 features digital photography artwork by former Winthrop University President Tony DiGiorgio. Travels and Flights of Fancy is on display through Feb. 16 in the Dalton Gallery at the Center for the Arts, 121 E. Main St., Rock Hill, S.C. Since the introduction and early development of photography in the 19th century, artists have been enlarging the use and nature of this technological invention as an aesthetic medium. With the advent of digital photography in the late 20th century, pioneering artists have used computer technology to create distinctive works of art that manipulate traditional photographic imagery into never-before-seen views into the world of imagination. DiGiorgio joined this 21st-century art movement a number of years ago and has created unique works of art that have been exhibited and presented as signature gifts to honor long-time friends of Winthrop University, where he was president for 24 years. His work is also displayed in venues across campus to inspire others to explore their own creativity. DiGiorgio’s artistic approach creates striking imagery that introduces viewers to the possibilities of photography in the digital age. DiGiorgio creates representational works of art from his initial digital images as well as abstract art as he explores the visible world along with the inner world of his imagination.
