|Katya Neptune's Instragram will appear in Ink and Pistons|
The show is a good fit for the venue, which opened this past July. Amanda Linton, who co-owns Ink and Pistons with her husband, tattoo artist and painter JR Linton, says the show helps to achieve her ongoing goal to get more people involved in the arts. "You don't really have to consider yourself an artist to be part of an Instagram show," she says. "Everybody right now is obsessed with Instagram, I think, partly because people want to peek into people's lives and see what they're doing."
Instagram, a free app with more than 100 million registered users, allows people to enhance photos (taken on an iPhone or Android) using a variety of filters, and instantly share these photos via Facebook, Twitter and Flickr.
On Saturday night, Ink and Pistons will exhibit more than 600 Instagram images, all of which were received in a call to Instagrammers and printed as professional-quality 4x4 photos.
