Opening Night @Artlery160 Tuesday June 28th, 2016
To Thirty More Years
June 8, 2016 to July 12, 2016
What an exciting way to spend Tuesday evening @artlery160. Having the privilege of exhibiting with fellow USEA artists in this new hip and happening galley made a somewhat ordinary evening fantastic!
The gallery is located in the historic Art Deco building at 160 Federal street in Boston’s financial district. Andre Reibling and David Thomson did a wonderful job with the installation with lots of breathing room allowing viewers to take in each piece of art one at a time. As people started coming in to view the work, I noticed that this was no ordinary reception. Many people had their cell phones out and were using Artlery’s high tech app to get details of the work. A sensor was placed near each art work so when you were close to the pieces the geo tagging or some kind of tech thing happened and it communicated with the Artlery app on your phone. So you could actually get real time data on each art work. David Thompson, the gallery owner was super excited showing all the different features this app. Eventually, David explained that this app could track your art way after it had sold and resold, and give you all sorts of info. Check it out: https://artlery.com. This cool app in a strange way made the reception more interactive for the attendees, at least it gave us more to talk about and made us move!
Thank you USEA co-chair Hope M Ricciardi for getting all of us organized. I was thrilled to be a part of the celebrations with Edith Bowers, Uschi Bracken,Marian Dioguardi, Marjorie Kaye, Ella Nicole, Julia Purinton, Ellen Rolli, Sloat Shaw, and Charyl Weissbach beautiful works of art!
