Point and Click: The Visual of Digital Art hosted by The Lot Downtown

Before The Lot Downtown is set to close its doors permanently

Shreveport, Bossier City, Louisiana — SHREVEPORT, La. (Ark-La-Tex Weekend) - The Lot Downtown hosts its final event, Alex Richardson’s art reception Point and Click: The Visual of Digital Art

On Friday, Sept. 2 at 5:30 p.m. The Lot Downtown will be hosting Alex Richardson’s art reception Point and Click: The Visual of Digital Art at 400 Crockett Street, Shreveport. Richardson’s goal is to dispel the stigma that digital art is less than traditional art. He says it’s no different from what or how he’d sketch in his school notebooks.

“I’ve titled the show “Point & Click: The Visual of Digital” and it will be a canvas-printed display of my art available to view over the course of 3 months. I’m calling it that because there still exists a stigma in the modern world of art surrounding digital art and illustration, viewing work done digitally as lesser than those done traditionally,” says Richardson. “I like to push back against that notion. Watching an older woman be flabbergasted at an art show that my piece was done digitally and those weren’t physical brush strokes was pretty great.”

The dramatic angles and beautifully done clean line work of Richardson’s work are both bursting in color and very detailed. Each work is a conversational piece, Richardson’s characters get the imagination running, leaving the viewer in wonder about the character’s story.

As an artist, Richardson is a prominent figure in the Shreveport/Bossier City art community, he is the Bossier Arts Council’s marketing coordinator and a member of the Lab Rats Arts group. He often appears in the media and is also known for his lead event coordination of the annual SBC Zombie Walk.
