Palm Harbor Library Exhibits Artwork of George Trimitsis
PALM HARBOR - The work of local artist George B. Trimitsis will be on display in the Palm Harbor Library's Art Alcove until December 31. His art reflects his formal education in the sciences (a Ph.D. in Chemistry), along with his fascination with poetry and mythology. He belongs to a contemporary generation of artists for whom the computer is an integral tool in the art-making process. His completed works lie somewhere between fact and fiction, reality and imagination, art and science.
On Tuesday, November 17, at 2:00 p.m., Trimitsis will give a lecture at the library entitled "Trends in Contemporary Art and the Emergence of New Media" where he will discuss the history of the post-modernist movement.
Much has been written about the relationship between art and science. Trimitsis has found that his active involvement in both has given him a unique perspective in each of these fields. He has found it liberating to delve into art making "where even the sky does not pose a limit." The computer, his primary tool, gives him "the flexibility to carry out what amounts to research in art making."
Trimitsis has been on the faculty at the University of Pittsburgh for nearly thirty years. He retired from the University in 2006, and he and his wife reside in Palm Harbor. He has exhibited his art nationally, and his works have found a home in permanent collections at various museums, institutions, and private collections.

The Art Alcove is open Monday through Saturday during library hours at 2330 Nebraska Avenue. For more information, call 727-784-3332, Ext. 3021, or visit the library's website at www.palmharborlibrary.org.
