New Fishers Gallery Launches with iPhone Art
Art created with iPhones by four local artists will kickoff the opening of a new gallery space in Fishers. More than 60 works by Becky Brill, Rad A. Drew, Katz Lee Finch and Colman S. Love will be featured at iCreate, the inaugural show at the business incubator Launch Fishers, with a grand opening reception from 5 to 8:30 p.m. on June 14.
The new art gallery is housed in an immense 16,000 square foot space on the ground floor of the Fishers Library. All of the pieces are photographs that were either shot with an iPhones camera, modified with some of the thousands of photo-editing apps available for the device, or both. The show will continue through September 14.
It's amazing what you can do with an iPhone and apps to create art,” says John Wechsler, who runs Launch Fishers for the town. “This is an art form that really is available to anyone with a smart phone and some creativity, so the show should have broad appeal," he adds. "The caliber of the pieces in this show clearly demonstrates what's possible."
