Scanner art demonstrated at art league meeting

The public is invited to the Kishwaukee Valley Art League’s next meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of DeKalb, on the corner of North Fourth and Locust streets in DeKalb.

Jim Dester will give a demonstration of scanography, or scanner photography. In scanography, artists use a flatbed photo scanner with a secondary device to capture digitzed images. It differs from document scanning because atypical objects, often three-dimensional, are scanned and often appear almost lifelike due to the level of detail.

Dester was born and raised on a farm in Oklahoma. He holds a degree in industrial technology from Northern Illinois University and worked for 30 years in the printing and manufacturing of business forms industry. Photography has been his passion for more than 50 years and he is constantly evolving as an artist by using new technologies.

The art league is a nonprofit organization that meets the first Thursday of each month. There is no fee or membership obligation to attend. Refreshments will be served.
