Edge of sky, an exhibition by Julie Garner, hosted by Daylighted at our new Partner the Waterfront Hotel in Oakland was a smash hit last night. The opening was well attended by a lot of our artists, other industry professionals, and friends. It was a pleasure to meet the artists who were able to show up, and a pleasure to be able to introduce Garners beautiful work to the more than 50 guests who showed up to celebrate with us.
Daylighted brought two additional SmArtGalleries and Garner brought several of her original pieces to show next to the digital displays. Daylighted premiered our first interactive tablets that let guests play with the display and explore the art and artist in a cool new way and are now a standard companion piece to each SmArtGallery installed.
In her framed analog art, the weave and texture of her creations jumped out and we got a huge amount of positive feedback from the analog and digital work shown side by side. The art displayed on the SmArtGalleries made great sense in the context of its analog companions and we got strong compliments and reviews that the work looked great on the screens. Julies work is on display at the Waterfront through March 19th.
We are looking forward to an opening for each new partner venue, and many more opportunities to highlight our fantastic community of artists. See you next time!
