We have made it to the $5000 mark … but many rivers to cross …
We are heading into the last week of the campaign. And we have $6000 to go to fully fund the new website. It is important for all of us: art lovers, artists, the iphonic art movement itself.
I hate bragging (but I am learning that it works very well so I am going to quote again an article written by my esteemed colleague, Marty Yawnick, who publishes the Life In LoFi iphoneography blog:
“Through the artistic passion and vision of Knox Bronson, P1xels has been a pioneering force in the short history of iPhoneography. Pixels At An Exhibition was the first curated online gallery of iPhoneography. A few months later, P1xels emerged from the virtual world and into the real on by hosting iPhoneography’s first brick and mortar gallery show at the Giorgi Gallery in Oakland.
Without P1xels, all of these things would have eventually happened in iPhoneography, but I truly believe that the art would not be the same without its [P1xels] early involvement. There would have been a first brick and mortar iPhoneography show sometime, but combined with Knox’s detailed and particular curation, the brick and mortar shows which introduced the art form to the general public got off to an excellent start. From the beginning, Knox set very high standards for P1xels artists. I think without his vision, iPhoneography would be very different today.”
Indeed, that first show burst open the doors for many artists and for the iphonic art movement itself. P1xels was the first to feature many artists, getting them international exposure and press. The list of P1xels’ firsts is too long to go into here. But our vision and plans for the future are as grand as ever. And we have many more exciting firsts on the drawing board and in the works.
