Virtual Reality Artist Garry Rone to Demonstrate at 2020 SCI Hunters’ Convention

Mississippi based artist, Garry Rone, has been honing his skills in Virtual Reality painting for the past year. Originally an artist for the apparel industry, Garry has joined his passion for this new art medium with his thirty-three years of illustration experience, creating a perfect union of technology and talent.

Garry will be demonstrating his skills and showing artwork every day at 1-2:30 pm and 3-4:30 pm during the 2020 SCI Hunters’ Convention in Concourse C of the Reno-Sparks Convention Center February 5-8, 2020. 

Garry believes the human side of art, the organic side, is what reaches out to us as humans. “It’s the part of art that stirs human emotion and connects the viewer to the art in a way that technology alone can only aspire to do. Perfect edges and colors can be perceived as clean and professional, but also can come across as cold and machined. By adding the human element back into art, I’m adding a sense of warmth and uniqueness, where the mind can almost instinctively sense the presence of human influence in the creation of the piece.” said Garry. “I believe art that retains, promotes and exemplifies the intimate relationship between the artist’s hand and the creation itself is more important now than ever – especially in such a technology-driven world. Organic art creates a stronger connection to the viewer.”

Creating this new art (literally) by hand in his home studio, Garry is building art for a wide range of applications, with current exploration in the virtual reality and augmented reality fields.
