[prMac.com] Louisville, KY and Lexington, MA - The Lion Company, Inc. is proud to announce the availability of our new IPhone and IPad art gallery application, the Wrye Gallery. Wrye Gallery seeks to introduce the wider world to the art and philosophy of Leo Wrye Zimmerman, founder of the Lion Company, creator of Silicoil artist products and an early Apple computer enthusiast who believed that art should be made available to everyone. Now with the Wrye Gallery application, it is!
The Wrye Gallery app features over 80 unique pieces, many of which are currently on display at the Leo Wrye Zimmerman: Return to Main Street exhibit at the Cressman Center for the Visual Arts in Louisville, Kentucky.
The exhibition features a sampling of Zimmerman's vast digital and oil on canvas art collection. It also includes a number of his famous illusionistic Sluball works which represent Zimmerman's explorations in kinetic perspective. The app brings the entire collection of Sluballs to life by showing them in full motion as they are meant to be enjoyed! The app also links viewers to a video presentation of dozens of his kinetic digital works from the early 1990s.
