It goes to show … you never know what is around the corner …
We are happy to report that http://p1xels.wpengine.com and the gallery show we are putting on at the Giorgi Gallery in Berkeley (Opening January 30) got a write-up in the New York Times.
A San Francisco Bay Area gallery is testing that idea with a photo contest that asks people to submit their artiest iPhone-taken pictures. At between 2 and 3.2 megapixels, depending on the model, the iPhone has a weak camera compared to competitors. But Giorgi Gallery, which is running the competition, says, “The eye of the artist is always more important than the technology in the creation of beautiful art.” Two hundred winners will get prints of their photos shown at an exhibition in Berkeley next month.
Wow, that's great!
