Florida artist offers tech  for art galleries to convert paintings into 360 degree VR

Tampa, (FL,USA), June 13, 2020: In these uncertain times of viruses, quarantines, violence, and whatever event will come next... it becomes particularly challenging for art galleries to survive. They must begin a business strategy that takes their art business into the virtual world to ensure their basic survival.
Fine art painter, Dave Alber has taken his oil and acrylic paintings into the virtual reality world with physical paintings that can be both entered and showcased as 360° panoramic VR experiences.Further, to address the needs of art galleries facing a difficult time... Dave Alber offers online and cellular VR gallery solutions to help galleries succeed.
“Art businesses endangered by quarantines or political and social uncertainty are still able to take their gallery into the virtual world,” Dave Alber tells gallery owners. “Imagine art lovers entering a gallery space in virtual reality. Imagine them, in virtual reality space, hovering in front of a painting. And now imagine them entering directly into the painting as a virtual reality experience. Art lovers can enter the paintings on the walls as 360° VR experiences.”
Art patrons can enter Hybrid VR Paintings through solutions built for:
cellular devices,
wall monitors,
projection rooms, and more.
“For art galleries that want to get started selling Hybrid VR Paintings to customers, there is virtually no limit to the innovative ways that they can allow their art lovers to interact with these paintings,” Dave Alber states. “But first, they will need to be able to tell their art patrons what Hybrid VR Paintings are.”
Hybrid VR Paintings are physical/virtual hybrid paintings that occupy physical space on the wall while simultaneously manifesting within the virtual world.
These paintings have no edges in the virtual world. They are 360°. Entering these virtual reality paintings an art lover:
can move 360° in panoramic VR space,
zoom out to enjoy the big picture, and
zoom in to focus on the details.
An art lover can hang a Hybrid VR Painting on their wall and through a monitor, cellphone, Smart TV, or VR headset enter - and allow their guests to enter - the Hybrid VR Painting in an immersive VR experience.
Alber says, “Hybrid VR Paintings connect the long continuity of the oil painting tradition with the immediacy of 21st century technology. It’s reminiscent of the sound barrier being broken…. They link the physical world, virtual world, and the continuity of our cultural tradition together in a singular fever of paradox.” More information  here
