WILMERDING, PA — Digital artist, Louis J. Boston II, is revealing his latest optical illusion art collection as the first presenting artist to showcase a gallery exhibit at Westinghouse Castle on September 16. A gallery-opening celebration will be held from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on September 16. Hosted by the artist in gallery space operated by local community arts and education nonprofit, Turtle Creek Valley Arts, Boston’s exhibit will be displayed from September 16-23, featuring limited-edition prints available for purchase – some never before released to the public.
A self-taught artist, Boston has been selling digital art prints for over a decade. In the last five years, Boston began to craft techniques using geometric patterns and vibrant colors to create optical illusions in a process he calls “optical tuning.”
Optical tuning is a style and new generation art movement Boston developed to evoke visual and mental sensory experiences by fine-tuning color spectrums into optical illusions.
“Some of my artwork you may find to be aesthetically calming,” Louis J. Boston II says in defining his collection, “some of my artwork you may also find to be a challenge to your visual senses.”
In partnership with TCV Arts, the exhibit will be open to the public in the surrounding southeastern communities, and the city of Pittsburgh. Headquartered in the former Westinghouse Air Brake Corporation offices known as Westinghouse Castle, TCV Arts provides community-based programming and opportunities for persons in the Turtle Creek Valley and Greater Pittsburgh regions.
The exhibit will be open weekdays, September 16-23 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturdays from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
