Art stores in the Atlanta area are increasingly getting out of the digital age, with online orders declining and some stores closing.

But not all art dealers are abandoning digital art.

Some are embracing the technology.

In some ways, that’s been a long time coming.

“There’s a growing interest in technology in the art world,” said John H. Wysocki, president of the Atlanta-based International Art Institute of Atlanta, which is the nation’s largest art and design school.

The institute is one of several arts-focused trade groups that have embraced digital art and are promoting new art products.

One of those is the Art and Design Museum of Atlanta.

Its new digital-focused exhibition, Digital Arts, will open May 13.

It’s one of more than 50 exhibitions that will open at the museum starting in July.

Art is an integral part of Atlanta’s history and is a way for residents to connect to and learn about the city’s rich history, Wysocksi said.

Digital art is the newest generation of art, he said, with artists who have embraced technology to make it accessible to all.

A new generation of Atlanta art is being created, said Haim B. Al-Yamaili, the museum’s director of public affairs.

But some artists are skeptical that digital art will become a part of the cityscape anytime soon.

Haim B, the director of the Art Museum of the United States and president of The Atlanta Art Institute, believes the future of art is in the digital realm.

I think it’s really a matter of time before the next generation of artists and designers comes in and they’re going to really transform this city, Al- Yamailis said. 

“I think we’re going from being an art museum to a digital museum, and that’s going to be a really good thing.”

Artists like Haim and Al- Yamaili see the potential of digital art, but they also say the future is still in the hands of the artists themselves.

While digital art has been embraced by some, artists say it’s not the way they see the future.

For artists like Kale Williams, digital art is a challenge, but it is a path.

Williams is an artist who has been creating artwork for more than 40 years.

He created a painting called “Cigarettes and Bullets” to showcase the influence of electronic music on contemporary art.

The painting was created with Adobe Illustrator, and the digital image of the painting is available online.

Williams has spent much of his career creating digital art in the hopes of finding a way to make his art work for him and other artists.

When he started making art digitally, he was thinking about what he could use as an alternative to printing and sending it to clients, Williams said.

“I wanted to make sure it was a good representation of what I was doing, and what I felt I could do with my body and mind and body and soul and soul, but not my hands,” Williams said, explaining his desire to create his art digitally.

Williams began painting digitally because he wanted to be more connected to his audience.

To that end, Williams uses a combination of digital techniques and his own body, hands and skin to create a visual language of his art.

Williams said he is trying to make art as realistic as possible, but he wants to create art that is “more of a visual expression of what it is to be alive.”

Digital technology is making art work more and more, Williams and others said, because it makes it possible to make things that are less digital.

Wysocks says the future may be in the realm of digital, but for now, artists are still making art using what they’ve been doing for centuries.

“When I think of our heritage and how we use art, I think digital, and especially digital art,” Wysicks said.

“We’re making art.”
