"Breaking New Ground: Explorations in Digital Printmaking" showcases a variety of approaches artists are taking in digital printmaking. Jan Hathaway, director of the exhibition and a new media arts teacher at Kapiolani Community College, for example, combines her printmaking background with her new media knowledge.

Hathaway takes photographs and uses digital technology to integrate her artwork with the photos. Some of the other artists' works are true digital creations, while other pieces are the result of specific techniques.

"This show is to help draw attention to what can be done with fine-art printmaking via digital," Hathaway said.

"Triple Crossed" by Bobby Crockett.

"Breaking New Ground" features the works of Hathaway, Mark Ammen, Bobby Crockett, HanSolo, Diana Jeon, Laura Ruby, David Smith and Shuzo Uemoto. The show is on exhibit at Kapiolani Community College's Koa Gallery through next Sunday. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesdays to Fridays and noon to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
