New Gallery of the Future Facilitates Interaction with Multimedia and
Internet Artists

San Francisco--The V.A.R.I.O.U.S. Media Ink Artists' Showcase and Network is
planning an exciting show at the Exploratorium in conjunction with Multimedia
Playground. Artists and audiences on-site and in CyberSpace will interact via
the Internet to explore creativity from many points of view. This ongoing
community forum invites artists to participate in presenting their work to
the public. It's a living gallery held at different locations.

The evening begins with an open musical jam session starting at 6 p.m. (bring
your instruments and voices), followed by large-screen presentations of
video, computer graphics, slides, performances and more. People at home and
around the world using CU-SeeMe software, can participate via video over the
Internet. The reflector site can be reached at: or This is a special event for the Creativity Cafe(tm)
facilitated by Hawaii OnLine Internet Services.

Traditional and digital artists are encouraged to bring, slides, videos,
photographs, digital images and animations for large screen presentation.
Featured artists include video artist; Alex Pineda, Rich Young with morphing
animations, digital "paintings" by Dana Muise, Laurance Arcadias, Sharron
Evans and others.

Everyone is encouraged to participate by sharing questions, impressions,
feeling and information during the presentations. Afterwards, audience
members are encouraged to mingle, share art they've brought, and get to know
one and other better in an atmosphere where, "Strangers, are just friends who
haven't yet met", say's Peter H. Rosen, the show's producer.

Rosen is founder of Visionary Artists' Resources Including Other Unique
Services (V.A.R.I.O.U.S.), a not for profit educational association,
principle sponsor of the happening. Proceeds will benefit the Creativity
Cafe-an educational entertainment and community networking center, planned to
open here in late summer.

"The Internet is shrinking the global village at an accelerated pace as we
move very rapidly into the next millennium-it's very exciting!", offer's
Rosen. "Many earth changes are calling for creative problem solving. The
Creativity Cafe will be a venue for multimedia visionaries to present
solutions, and a rest stop along the Information Superhighway where the
public can get a better understanding and have access to the latest
communications tools and toys. It will be a place to have fun or get work
done!" Past and present supporters include Apple Computer, GeoNet, SONY
Corp., Radius, Inc., and Macromedia.
