OTC Fine Art Gallery at The Gillioz 
presents
Featured Artist Meike Aton with her show
Touching Sky and Earth
- and everything in between.
From the Artist: "Reflecting on nature, it fills me with awe! Be it a simple rock, (it's just not simple though!) or the whole mountain; a plant in all of its vibrancy or an insect in its secretive ways, they hold mysterious connections in the cosmic cycle. 
"Using the colors and textures absorbed in observation, I recreate all I see between sky and earth into a dreamlike landscape. Some dreams are powerful and vibrant; some are gentle and soft.
"May you be touched by these dreams!"

BookMarx

    BookMarx  presents Featured Artist Jason Lord: This Controller Sucks.
About the Exhibit: One of the most fundamental points of creating "gameplay" is the medium through which an individual is connected physically or metaphorically to a game. ...   This Controller Sucks brings a reversal of engineering to highlight the qualities necessary to create what we know as a good controller. It doubles both as both art exhibit and interactive experience showcasing the less visible aspects of game design. Its final objective is to frustrate exhibit-goers, which is something that the original artist waits for in eager anticipation."
