As the tumultuous world of commercial galleries continues to scramble for readjustment to today's sales-savy artists, alternative methods of display are at the forefront of a battle, a battle which The Distillery Gallery* has deemed: "Artageddon."
This exhibit gathers twenty artists from Boston and beyond who are moving forward in their careers regardless of a lack of gallery representation. Embracing alternative venues, social networks, street campaigns, and other creative outlets for their work, these artists are helping to shape the future of art commerce. Rather than rely on commissioned gallerists to vend their works, artists of today have the ability to independently exhibit and sell to a degree unparalleled in the past.
"Artegeddon," as an exhibit, highlights merely a fraction of the enormous pool of talented artists whom are diligently pressing forward amidst this transitional point in time. "Artageddon" as a concept will prompt fallout and unknown consequence which the exhibitors will continue to navigate and embrace.
I have one piece in that show and I was featured in a writeup on the Daily Serving blog!http://www.dailyserving.com/collage/
