Round three- always said to make an alchemical shift for the better!

  September 28th, 2014

the ARt project is submitting a project proposal to the EECS capstone projects class for the second year in a row.

Those collaborating creative innovators, across both the OSU and Corvallis community who believe in this smart and savvy app idea, are hopeful a motivated undergraduate team will help us make a successfully demonstrable custom iteration. that will make investors say yes!

This new academic year also brings you, the audience, the opportunity to invest directly as a local patron in support of the ARt project development.

Contact me for details (find my email below) about the Iconic Views at OSU Series. An original fundraiser art project for the patron interested in investing in the intersection of traditional art with innovative mobile technology utilization.

Want to encounter the art on campus with a guide?

Be sure to schedule your VTS tour of OSU’s Percent for Art Collection, by emailing me.

I am, Kerrie B. Wrye– OSU post-Bacc ’14, at: lartistedelavie at gmail dot com

Below are 2- finished images of the 15 in-progress Iconic Views at OSU Series:

*I am interested in turning you on to our shared cultural legacy here in Oregon, starting at OSU. It’s citizen-owned!

Iconic Views at OSU- making art on behalf of the ARt project

  March 13th, 2014

There are several inaugural parallels at work in this posting!

The first is- a new annual student exhibit on display now at Oregon State University’s new Beth Ray Student Success Center.

Iconic Views at OSU series #1

The second inaugural parallel is- you can see the first image of new art in a series, entitled: Iconic Views at OSU Series #1 on view there, with 19 other juried student art works until June 2014.
Make plans to stop by! Hours are 8-5, M-F.

Iconic Views at OSU is a new series that once completed will be comprised of 15 works. The artist is creating this series to raise local capital in support of her on-going work on the ARt project, and you can help by making a purchase of one of these works as a gift for yourself, your department, someone in your family, or as a gift to the community.

Watch a slideshow documenting the progression of the inaugural work in this series.

Iconic Views at OSU Series takes viewers on a visual exploration of human culture and natural resources operating in this particular setting; providing associative technology examples that exist in a collaborative reality across our local academic life.

From the artist’s original vision to provide greater public access to the Percent for Art collection, valued at $2.4 million at Oregon State University alone- the second phase prototype refinements of the app, is now preparing for what is the 3rd inaugural parallel: unveiling it at the 2014 Engineering Expo, on May 16th. This event is open to the public, so be sure to meet the artist, and the rest of the ARt project’s collaborative and exceptionally talented team.

Contact the artist here to purchase, or pre-purchase a work in the Iconic Views at OSU Series, and to find out more details about her vision for the series.

Support the ARt project’s development in art and access to culture in our community.

A few general words on art- marketing it and general access to it, via 21st C. technologies

  February 18th, 2014

As an artist returning to traditional studio production, I have some experience with certain exhibition display and audience response approaches, found in various territories of connecting the artist and their audience.

In essence- what is marketing art and how does one go about it?

My own familiarity includes approaching galleries and institutions, portfolio presentation, a little grant writing; considering the art I am producing and who might be attracted to supporting it; displaying it in settings and contexts that are a fit from more than one angle, and over time- cultivating who may buy semi-regularly.

Cultivating relationships with members of my art audience, including galleries and other arts industry professionals, artists who are colleagues, still others who are friends and sometimes both- is a set of processes that is engrossing to say the least.

Known to throw nicely catered receptions I make myself, one relates to this part of the art making/connecting reality as interwoven. For the most part, I still respond to it with genuine enjoyment, even relish!

Currently and with a commitment to keep learning- I enjoy what are to me- some of the early results of utilization, application and coordination with a spectrum of new online tools and traditional practices that work for the art I am producing, while learning to build the audiences I seek to target.
This terrifyingly wonderful journey of rebuilding a following of tried and true supporters, and discovering new communities of supporters both locally and online, includes coordinating personal and inter-personally scaled historically embedded values that are simultaneously uniquely emerging in my returning studio practices.

This is the second work in the I.V. Series. What do you see going on in this picture?

This is the second work now-in-progress, in the Iconic Views at OSU Series. What do you see going on in this picture?

Why the interruption?

There is always a greater personally-lived context for the events that occur in life, and observation developed over time lends to appreciation for right context.
Attempting an unburdened reintroduction, for the past 2 1/2 years I have been operating in parallel universes to learn about evolving a unique and more broad market access through social education, or free-choice learning and ways to offer this access in mobile technology. Free choice learning is an activity we all engage whenever we go to museums and the many public institutions that permanently house those collections that speak to our individual interests and curiosities.

In 2011 I became curious about how to take traditional forms of access to the arts a step further, and I started collaborating across disciplines with developers and engineers in mobile technology. My goals were and are motivated to provide broader producer and audience opportunities on multiple sides of the permanent, public art and access experience, within niche public settings.

As a result, the ARt project was realized in July 2012. Now in second stage UI refinements, and due for a project unveiling in May 2014, I am learning there may be many unique and powerful openings to consider about what were once traditional paths of access. Through the ARt project, I am among the early adopters- artists and collaborative partners with other industry areas, who are innovating together, new examples for the continuation of traditional studio activity, creative production and exhibition- to increase creative and collaborative activity and interaction new 21st C. design and possibilities.

One increased access and activity area is art marketing, as it currently enjoys a dynamic response to new forms of internet communication, owing in no small part, to artists’- long isolated from the opportunities of making a living, we are now more than ever empowered to make inherently direct forms of audience contact, connection and as a result- access more sales opportunities.

In art, culture and education- there are many new possibilities that mobile technologies are being and will continue to both be implemented and explored, between our inter-activities with it and our audiences.
With greater rapidity, we all continue learn and expand more, how and what it means to connect audiences to subject interest areas and the makers of them thanks to the current transition to ubiquitous computing.
