Adapting to the Times: Creating an Immersive Art Experience – Artist Jill Krutick & Designer Simone Kurtz Create “Augmented Reality” Gallery and Share the Process
In light of social distancing and a pause in Jill Krutick’s art shows scheduled this year, Jill Krutick Fine Art created an “augmented reality” gallery from home computers to push the limits on sharing art in today’s world.
Mamaroneck, NY, May 07, 2020 –(PR.com)– Jill Krutick, owner and fine artist, curated a virtual art show in her Mamaroneck studio/gallery with the help of designer, Simone Kurtz. Several new pieces, old favorites and work that is currently overseas or out of state is featured.
Jill Krutick says, “We have created a rendering of the studio with these works as if they are actually there. Today we wanted to share the final proofs of this multi-week process as well as two videos that capture a behind the scenes look at how we put this project together.”
Simone Kurtz added, “Creating this virtual experience was based on a process that was similar to creating mockups in preparation for our museum shows.”
In the video called “Art Today: Creating A Virtual Visit,” Jill Krutick and Simone Kurtz discuss the curatorial process as well as how the show was digitally built using Adobe Photoshop to realistically scale, place and finalize the paintings on the walls. Some of the works featured appeared in museum exhibitions over the past year; Jill Krutick had solo exhibitions at the Coral Springs Museum of Art in Coral Springs, Florida and the Yellowstone Art Museum in Billings, Montana. The music for the nine-minute video was composed and performed by Casey Lakrtiz.
Jill Krutick Fine Art created this “virtual visit” and recognizes that the paintings can just as easily “visit” a space that is special to clients. Please follow Jill Krutick’s work on Instagram @jillkrutickfineart and visit jillkrutickfineart.com for the latest pieces.
