The Lycoming College Art Gallery will unveil “Divergent Forms” featuring the works of Manuel Moreno-Lee, assistant professor of digital art at Lycoming College, on Feb. 5. The exhibit, which will run through April 10, is free and open to the public.

Moreno Lee’s work focuses on narrative-driven stories and themes of culture, nature, technology, and human identity using a wide range of mediums. His exhibit will highlight projected works as well as several prints and films.

“While I prefer working with traditional techniques to create my films, I always allow personal desires to push myself to explore new technologies to dictate how I create any new work,” said Moreno Lee.

Moreno Lee holds a B.F.A. from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, and an M.F.A. from Rochester Institute of Technology in film and animation. He is a 3D generalist and artist whose work has been screened at festivals globally, winning several awards. As a freelance animator, he has worked in Boston, San Francisco, Minneapolis, and Rochester, NY. Moreno Lee works in a wide range of mediums to create narrative-driven work in both 2D and 3D. He teaches digital art classes at Lycoming, including 3D character animation, time-based digital media, digital modeling, and other topics.

The Lycoming College Art Gallery is located in downtown Williamsport at 25 W. Fourth St. The gallery contributes to the city’s arts culture and provides a way for the College to become more involved with the community surrounding it. Lycoming art students have the opportunity to interact with visiting artists and their work, as well as learn first-hand the inner workings of a gallery. This spring, the gallery is open on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, 4-8 p.m. For more information, please visit the gallery online at https://www.lycoming.edu/art/gallery.html or email dirocco@lycoming.edu.
