Blank Slate: Social Web XR Happy Hour


Art & Technology have merged with Gamut Gallery’s first virtual reality (VR) exhibition, Blank Slate. Our virtual Web XR platform, is accessible all over the world for those who wish to enter from the comfort of their own homes via laptop or VR headset from your web browser (Firefox/Chrome). This virtual exhibition space, created by Brian Skalak of REM5, has been digitally simulated to look and feel like our brick-and-mortar. It is full of bright, bold colors, abstract line works and non-traditional portraits  in our new virtual environment.

Our WebXR opening was the beginning of the new virtual gallery space, now it will continue to serve as an event and meetup location for the foreseeable future.  Gamut members and guests can check in 24 hours a day, seven days a week, without leaving their home. Meet the artists, hang out with your friends, and make your way through Gamut Gallery & our back courtyard that contains a few new twist & turns. This new platform also creates accessibility allowing collectors from around the globe to expand their art collections through the click of the mouse.

From the Curator:
“As many of us have participated in creative, alternate art avenues through live streams, Zoom meetings & Instagram take-overs, we believe the VR world will transcend us to the immersive connections we have been missing. Designing virtual places to gather, discover community & enjoy art is the direction that spaces like ours will be heading.” – Cassie Garner
