Photography, move over and make way for the computer age. That's the message proclaimed by Chris Wayne's solo show of computer graphics at the Franklin Institute. It reminds us of the fast-growing adversary relationship between computer graphics and photography. Now that videos and copy-machine art are being routinely included in art exhibits, Wayne is pushing the frontier a bit farther with his use of powerful new tools to produce computer-generated imagery. He belongs to the second generation of computer-literate artists, people who have brought their concerns about technology alive in art schools and universities, in studios and commercial-production houses.

What better way to "capture" Christmas than wandering through downtown West Chester with camera and tripod, taking pictures of window decorations and historic homes? There is no better way if you are a photography buff. Comparing your pictures with those of other camera enthusiasts can be entertaining and educational. Field trips such as the excursion to West Chester attract a variety of people with varying levels of expertise to the Chester County Camera Club. A love of photography and an interest in taking good pictures are the only requirements for joining.

Mighty photographers from tiny snapshooters grow, said some famous philosopher. Ansel Adams, I think. In any case, sometimes the best place to assess the future of an endeavor is in the schools where its young practitioners reside. And photography's future appears quite rosy when viewed within the walls of several Philadelphia art schools and colleges. Also on view is the unsteady relationship of the "art" of photography to the rest of the "art" world. Nowhere is the public attitude toward a definition of art more splintered than in the realm of photography.

Michael Morrill, a prominent Pittsburgh abstract painter, is introduced at Seraphin Gallery in his first Philadelphia solo. A teacher of studio art at the University of Pittsburgh, the Yale-trained Morrill became an artist when the reductive aesthetic of the 1970s, not the more austere minimalism of the 1960s, was emerging and combining itself with painterly enrichment - something that characterizes his distinctive handling of this method. I'd say Morrill keeps half a foot in the reductive camp, while his paintings emphasize their expressive option with brilliance.

A champagne brunch and auction and a photography exhibition highlight the June calendar of Perkins Center for the Arts in Moorestown. To mark the 150th anniversary of the invention of photography, the Moorestown arts center and the Camden County Cultural and Heritage Commission are holding a joint exhibition on the influence of technology on photography. The show begins today at two locations and runs through June 24. Works by 11 artists will be featured, with each using more recently developed technologies - computers, videos, holograms, digital recordings and photocopiers - to create photo artworks.
