Muses and Gameplay (and Open Studios) at Helikon Gallery!

Chasing Coin by Ray Munoz, for Gameplay
Helikon Gallery and Studios continues its gratifying habit of producing high-quality art shows--this time with Gameplay and Muses of Mount Helikon IV!

"Gameplay is a group exhibit of unique and original artwork inspired by the influence, history, and current state of video games. This interactive genre of art has had a major impact on our pop culture, helping define the pastime of a whole generation and sparking heated debates about its role in our lives. 
The show includes tributes to specific games and series, new takes on classic titles, and homages to the aesthetics and themes of video games. All work in Gameplay is small and affordably priced, making it easy to start or expand an art collection or find a unique, memorable gift for the geek in your life."

Below are a few more pieces from the show:

 About MUSES IV:

"Helikon Gallery is proud to present the next installment of our year-end, definitive group exhibit of inspiring and influential contemporary artists known as Muses of Mount Helikon IV. This annual show is an invite-only exhibit of artists from across the United States, known for being large, eclectic, colorful, and featuring high-level work in the illustrative arts – a loose term encompassing portraiture, figurative art, illustration, and narrative, imaginative artwork.

The Muses were Greek goddesses of inspiration said to dwell upon Mount Helikon. In accordance with this classical myth, Muses IV has no restriction on theme or concept, but rather serves as an encouragement for artists to show their newest and most expressive personal works."
