Our Pick of the Week takes place at bG Gallery at Bergamot Station.
“Spectrum-Gestalt 2,” a group show which is part curatorial, part installation opens this Saturday. “Spectrum-Gestalt 2” brings together artists’ works from a wide variety of genres and mediums, grouping them into an expansive spectrum of color. The exhibition will run through August 16.

Gallery owner and curator Om Bleiceher explains, “This is a fun exhibit for me because it combines an art installation with a group show it’s also a little sentimental because it is the second incarnation of the show that we installed in the space when we thought we were just going to be here for a month.”
bG Gallery has organized some exceptional exhibitions since it moved to Bergamot Station. The first spectrum was one of its most popular exhibits and the unofficial launch of the new Bergamot Station space. The second incarnation will have a similar concept but a different installation structure.

‘Spectrum-Gestalt” is part of an ongoing series of installation/curatorials exploring gestalt principles by Bleicher, also a terrific artist himself (Airom).
Bleicher continues, “A year and a bit later we have the sequel, just like the first show this one allows us to explore mostly new artists to the gallery (though we’ll also be featuring gallery artists from the first spectrum show amidst the spectrum) and push the boundaries and breadth of what we usually show b.y having the cohesive color scheme tie together the diversity in the styles and mediums.”
