On the perks of virtual exhibitions

January 23, 2014 • By

There is a big chance that you don’t have that much spare time to indulge in a visit at an art gallery. It’s usually the late hours. Your late hours, of course. But here is something that should make you feel better: there are virtual art collections just a click away.

There is also a big chance that you’re already using Instagram, Flickr, and a dozen other apps oozing images. You probably capture your own moments on camera, and you noticed that even words rely on images more than a few years ago as data visualization is making consumers gulp down information.

But I’m not here to discuss the state of visual communication. I’m here to remind you of those moments when you should be seduced by art photography, and let the stories unfold.

So, for the busy ones addicted to quality photography, I’ve just came across a virtual exhibition for your viewing pleasure: “Hot Shot: New Photography”. To see how it comfortably spreads its wings online go to saatchionline.com and check out 48 items one click away.

Portraits, landscapes, collages, still life, and more, mingle in this eclectic collection infused with hues and sensations that will break through the everyday outpouring of images.

With the perks of the online, you can visit it in your own time, for free, wherever there is an internet connection. You can also “collect”, share, favorite, comment, buy, see the images on full screen or scroll quietly from one image to another. There’s even a feature that allows you to see what a particular piece looks like in a … living room. It goes without saying that given the ubiquity of the online, you are another click away from browsing the artist’s portfolio and getting directly in touch with them.

Of course, this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t put some order in that busy schedule of yours and visit a less ‘virtual’ gallery. Good luck!
