Facebook logo sculpture by Zebbler Studios on Chronicle
The Boston Artists Blog was happy to help Facebook find the perfect local creative team to bring this sculpture to fruition, and we were thrilled to see it on tv last night. "We have a sculpture that we had built for our launch a little over 3 and a half years ago. It's made of recycled computer components in the shape of our logo," says Boston's Facebook headquarters on WCVB's Chronicle. The genius creatives behind this sculpture are our friends at Zebbler Studios. You may have seen Zebbler Studios' work before as they are well known for their custom First Night projections on the Boston Public Library. They are also the creators of the psychedelic Shpongletron for the electronic group Shpongle. We look forward to seeing more collaborations with Zebbler Studios around Boston in the near future, and we encourage local businesses to email us if they are in need of art! We know many artists in the area and…

New York Artist Sandra Lerner Exhibits Creative Flux at Harvard’s Gutman Gallery

New York Artist Sandra Lerner Exhibits
Creative Flux at Harvard’s Gutman Gallery

An exhibition of paintings by artist Sandra Lerner conveying sweeping energy, grandeur and a hint of landscape, will be showing at Gutman Gallery, Harvard Graduate School of Education. The works will remain on view from April 1 through May 4, 2017. Lerner, who has been described as a romantic visionary, provides insights into inescapable truths through her art, but her paintings also please the eye and afford aesthetic pleasure. Her paintings are inspired by Taoist philosophy, nature, physics, and cosmology. Critic Donald Kuspit, who wrote an essay on Lerner’s Creative Flux Series, says Lerner’s works, “seem rooted in the grand tradition of romantic landscape painting, with the landscape reduced to its abstract fundamentals, streamlined to its expressive essentials.” But Kuspit added that the elements of her paintings suggest that “something more is at stake than romantically suggestive pure art.” The horizon…

IMPRESSIONIST SCREEN UNVEILED IN CAMBRIDGE

The Atom Screen Combines Revolutionary Technology with the Artistic Elements of Impressionism to Radically Change the Viewer-Screen Experience From the creator of the “I-Tunes of Smells” comes the Atom Screen, a revolutionary invention with the potential to transform the world of digital display screens and the way people absorb images and information.
David Edwards’ latest invention was unveiled last week as part of an exhibition 'Life in Picoseconds' at Le LaboratoireCambridge. 
The Atom Screen is the first of its kind impressionist screen. Impressionist screen technology presents images with dynamic texture in a similar fashion to the way impressionist painters pushed representation beyond the realism of the photograph. The Atom Screen brings to the world of fashion, culture and media a secondary texturing that can evoke emotion, heighten viewer interest and retention, while simultaneously reducing viewer fatigue. 
Today’s $29 billion global commercial display market has made t…

Leica Gallery Boston Presents Darker Than Blue from Grammy-Nominated Artist and Photographer Mathieu Bitton
Candid black-and-white exhibit features images from Bitton’s world travels as well as famous “Hand Portraits," echoing the artist’s spontaneous photography. Leica Gallery Boston is proud to present the East Coast premiere of Mathieu Bitton’s photo exhibition, Darker Than Blue. The collection will debut on March 9, 2017 with an opening reception from 6-9pm, and be available for public viewing from March 9 – April 30, 2017.
Bitton, who shot the photographs almost exclusively with his Leica Monochrom Typ 246, sought to capture natural-feeling, unguarded snapshots. “My objective was to show the profound beauty in these very real, everyday moments,” Bitton explains. This contrast is central to Bitton’s Hand Portraits, in which he focuses on his subjects’ hands to illustrate their uniqueness. One snapshot from this series shows Quincy Jones wearing Frank Sinatra’s pinky ring – beari…
