2D Art Goes 3D at Grayduck Gallery
It was inevitable that the 3D craze would spread into all aspects of our life. Grayduck Gallery's newest show explores the trend through photographs, paintings and sculptures that have to be viewed through 3D glasses to be fully appreciated. The show titled Red Left, Blue Right is a collective of artists from across North America. Most of the artwork is strong enough to be enjoyed with or without the glasses, but photographer Dan Forbes has the most success with the effect. Dan Forbes layers contrasting images in his photopraphs that when viewed through the glasses jump out at you. The images are beautifully shot and well composed.
Although 3D art is nothing new, Grayduck's newest exhibition succeeds because there is substance beyond the gimmick. Opening night took place on May 11th and despite the strong storm that blew through town, the gallery had a steady stream of 3D spectacle wearing art enthusiasts flowing in and out of the gallery.
Red Left, Blue Right will be on view through June 16th and the show was put together by guest curator Phillip Edward Niemeyer. For more information please visit the Grayduck Gallery website at: http://www.grayduckgallery.com/
