"Thanks for your submission. I know you've got a lot of energy, so I'll say
that if you completely redesign your site, and make it an awesome
experience (see some of my previous high-fives), I'll come back and give it
serious consideration. You have potential, and most people don't get this
much from me, so consider yourself noticed."

"Thought you might be interested to know that we thought
the gallery was a good site, and we've included it on this
week's round-up of Web sites. (Jump: News Perspective and
select Web guide from the menu)."

"After touring the many rooms of this gallery and reading some things to
read, you might get the impression that the 1990s genre of
Techno-Impressionism is being defined right before your very eyes. You
might also get the impression that some of the work of the
Techno-Impressionists does not look digital or computer generated at
all. But then again, that's the beauty of it."

"The Techno-Impressionist Gallery - Does most digital art leave your retinas
begging for mercy? This soothing site features a huge gallery of
computer-generated art with an organic feel. It might be all over for
charcoal. Judge for yourself."

Review: As Tony Karp, curator of this site explains, Techno-Impressionists maintain the
philosophies of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art but utilize computers and other media. This
is a large and ever-growing collection of interesting work by various artists.
> Excite NetReviews
This is one of the largest art sites on the web, with almost 100 images. The gallery changes
quite often as a new room is added every day or two. It is based on the work of the
Impressionist painters of the late 19th century, but using modern materials and techniques.
Interesting place to check out current contemporary artists and a must for every artist.

"A preliminary drawing for a wallpaper pattern is more highly finished than this seascape."

in the first Impressionist exhibition
"I really hate to be a critic, but I looked at your pages. The words "Bad" "Cheesy" and the phrase "Cheap computer tricks" came to mind immediately."
> Travis Anton, 1995,
- criticism of the Techno-Impressionist gallery
"As for your critics - "Bad" "Cheesy" and the phrase "Cheap computer tricks" are phrases that we at MOBA do not like to see bandied about carelessly. As a director of the leading institution in the nation dedicated to bad art, I can assure you that your work is none of the above and we resent the authors solipsistic recklessness."
> Jerry Reilly, Museum of Bad Art (MOBA),
- officially declaring this work to be 'not bad'
"Wonderful stuff. Spent an hour here. Keep up the effort.
An oasis in the desert"
> Michael Richard
"Riding a minimalist wave -- far from the impressionism of Monet, with which the masses may be more familiar -- Techno-Impressionists break, make, and reinvent the rules. They are a group of conceptual artists who use computer-age tools and experimental routes to disseminate information and imagery.
The art is wonderful, the site is smooth and well-organized, and, overall, it's a fantastic look at the art world through the periscope of HTML."
