After what organizers call "a wildly successful run and standing-room-only opening night," the Games We Play Art Exhibit In San Francisco finally comes to a close on March 30.
Organizers Present Creative (a casual and social game company), and Nieto Fine Art (a contemporary art gallery in the heart of San Francisco) will celebrate the conclusion of the game-related art exhibit with a closing reception on March 25. Organizers say that the first annual Games We Play exhibit was so successful that the opening party during GDC week exceeded capacity and left patrons waiting to get inside for a look at unique pieces from both established and new artists who have worked on a multitude of infamous video game titles from the industry's leading game companies.
The art show showcased talented artists who have worked on such popular titles as Mafia Wars, Farmville, Diablo II, Hellgate: London, Jewel Quest and Peggle Nights. The exhibit was designed to honor the art origins within video games and celebrate its irreverent and rebellious nature. The concept was conceived by Present Creative executives.
The show features works for sale by 26 different video game artists from the Bay Area and beyond including (but not limited to): story-images from illustrator Michael Dashow, robotic sculptures of Present Creative Cofounder Zachary Present; surreal paintings from Kelly Denato and humorous prints from Sirron Norris.
To celebrate the exhibit's month-long run, Present Creative and Niet Fine Art are hosting a reception with drinks and music on the evening of March 25.
