Boskone 48 Art Exhibit – Audio-Visual Reconstruction

At Boskone 48, not only were there great works of Greg Manchess, Omar Rayyan, and Bob Eggleton, among others, taking up several rows of panels, but there was also an entire wall dedicated to an exhibit of original SF and Fantasy paintings!   Curated by Joe Siclari and Edie Stern, the exhibit featured dozens of works from their collection, as well as many more loaned by other major collectors.

Now that I have a decent mini voice recorder, I decided to do a long walk through the exhibit and comment on the paintings.   Fortunately, I remembered to mention most of the dates and the sources where the paintings were published, so now I can reconstruct a major part of the exhibit from the recording for this post.  In fact, it would probably make the most sense to just listen to the MP3 (below) as you browse down the images of the works being discussed.

Hope you enjoy the virtual exhibit!
