Virtual art gallery tours certainly existed in the pre-COVID world – but now that getting up, out and to around to a gallery on your own time is a stretch, at best, the computer-generated virtual tour has taken on a whole new mantle of significance.
Take, for example, the new show at the Tully-Levine Gallery, which is in the Arts Xchange, which is in the Warehouse Arts District Soft Water Studios compound (there’ll be a quiz later to make sure you caught all that).
Designed by Dylan Todd Photography, the experience takes you into the actual gallery, virtually and spatially, and allows to focus in on any piece that catches your fancy. Do a 360 -it’s pretty cool.
Check it out here.
On display you’ll find: Installation by Alice Ferrulo; sculpture by Maria Saraceno; jewelry by Paola Nesmith; mixed Media by Susan Antoinette and Vanessa Seagraves; photography by Donna Daugherty, Rob Fazio, and Dylan Todd; paintings by Tom Amidon, Jenny Bleackley, Nancy Cohen, John Flavin, Sue Johnson, Carrie Kilgore, Andrea Pawlisz and Don Silvestri.
Appointments can be made to visit the Tully-Levine Gallery in person, socially distanced, by calling (917) 921-6821 (especially helpful if you’re interested in purchasing something).
The Members’ Show will be there – virtually and in real life – until the Second Saturday ArtWalks resume – whenever that might be.
The ever-prolific Chad Mize virtually introduces Globe, the new MIZE Gallery show, at 6 p.m. today, featuring the works of 38 artists, featuring 38 new artists’ works inspired by a selected country. You can see it all, with pithy commentary by the gallery owner himself, on the MIZE Facebook page at 6, and on Chad’s Instagram at 7. There are physical gallery hours, 11 a.m.-7 p.m. every Saturday (mask required).
PixelStix, which created the interactive, curated online map for the Arts Alliance’s SHINE Mural Tour, has taken things one step farther with the Drive-In Mural Theater, in which you can “drive” up to each of St. Pete’s 88-plus murals (two at a time), “park” your “car” and learn all about them via docent narration.
It’s necessary to download the app for it; this story will take you through it.
