Inaugural Digital Art Exhibition Opens Today at Friesen+Lantz

 

“I believe This is the future of art,” said Lantz as she reviewed the digital art pulsating from screens as big as 55 inches. “Physical art will never go away—it’s tactile and beautiful. But this is also beautiful. This is art but it’s made in an entirely new medium.”

 

Lantz is presenting the first Digital Art Exhibition: NFT SV x Sonic Summit in Idaho today through Monday, Sept. 5. And she is building an exhibition in virtual reality so that those who can’t visit the gallery in person can see the exhibition from a VR headset or their computer.

What the heck is an NFT? Friesen+Lantz Gallery explores fine art's 'next evolution'

 

“This will be extremely important in the future,” Lantz said. “NFTs might not be what they are today, but everyone is going to be using them in some way. And I don’t want to be left behind.”

When Lantz took over the gallery, she wanted to see what was new and exciting in the art world. NFTs rose to prominence during the COVID lockdown. In March 2021, Beeple sold an NFT for $69 million at Christie’s. That’s when Lantz started paying attention. 

 

"What is this? Why is it important? The more I read the more it just seemed to make sense,” Lantz said. “I’m finding this connects more easily with the younger generation. One of my missions at this gallery is to make art accessible.”
