Copy of press release for the gallery 9 show
New Work by The Vangobot: An Artistic Collaboration of Man & Machine, and Member Artists of Gallery Nine.
Opening Reception: Gallery 9, Friday, August 6, 2010 from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Watch The Vangobot in action!
In August, Gallery 9 will feature the work of The Vangobot, the unique brain child and creation of Doug Marx and Luke Kelly. Vangobot implements a formalization of artistic technique using robotics to create real paintings from a full assortment of brushes, an onboard paint mixing system and 3D spatial awareness. Also on view will be new work by G9 member artists, inspired by science fiction, science fact and fantasy.
Special G9 Event: Q&A With The Vangobot: Friday, August 27, 2010, 7:00 P.M. – Purely technical skill from a brush does not make an artist. The ideas expressed, visually or conceptually, are products of those who create and use this incredible new technology. Meet the creators, join the conversation!
Gallery Nine is located at 124 South 9th in the historic Mission Arts Building. Gallery hours are
Wednesday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, Noon to 5:00 p.m.
FREE Parking Behind G-9, East of the Gallery on Opening Friday Nights.
See Gallerynine.com for a listing of August dates Vangobot will be creating art.

DEADLINE FOR SHOW MET…. at least the machine is working, now time to tear it down and install it on-site. We’ve never painted anything with it at this point.
During the month of August we completed several paintings with VB3. There was a lot of on the fly learning with the new machine. It was during this time we found the problems with the IC relay board…
