Some of our favorite #NeoImpressed submissions from Week 1.

Neo-Impressionist artists, like Symbolist poets and composers, sought to evoke certain moods, feelings, and experiences through their work. They utilized color, stylization, and compositional elements to create atmospheric, dreamlike worlds.

In Neo-Impressionism and the Dream of Realities: Painting, Poetry, Music, you can create your own “dream of realities” using an in-gallery app modeled after the Neo-Impressionists’ techniques. Snap a self-portrait, pointillize it, then customize it by selecting the dot size, applying color effect, and adding your signature. Share your photo with #NeoImpressed and you might just end up starring in our blog roundup!

American Beauty, uCurate submission from Tiffany

Put your hands together for Tiffany, winner of May’s uCurate prize. Tiffany incorporated a number of themes into her two-room exhibition, American Beauty. Of her exhibition, Tiffany says:

“The beauty of Americana is showcased via various landscapes, time periods, mediums, and palettes. From the first gallery filled with the modern richness of Cubist, Abstract Expressionism, mixed with more “classical” landscapes provides a bold overview. Transitioning from the first room, painted yellow, into the second room, painted a more traditional gray, we step into a world of American scenes, seascapes, cold landscapes, baseball, and urban landscapes.”
