Art goes digital after gallery closure

While scrolling through short news articles, I came across the title of one, Art goes digital after gallery closure, which seemed like it could be worth reading. The opening line of the short article states “ARTISTS working in the area of the UK are moving into the digital age by ditching their exhibitions in galleries and moving their work online.” One of the few galleries in the Leighton area, B Gallery, in Toddington’s Market Square, has closed down due to this artists movement. For artists in this area wanting their hard work to be seen digitally uploaded on the web instead of up close and in person is a bitĀ absurd to me. Seeing a work of art in front of you is a completely different experience then what a computer screen shows you. Texture, stroke, and details are visually impossible to see on a computer screen.
