What’s up at Boston-area art galleries

The gamers are coming. The PAX East gaming convention takes place March 22-24 at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, and the wily folks at Boston Cyberarts have seized the opportunity to demonstrate how sweetly art and video games dovetail. “The Game’s Afoot: Video Game Art” at the Boston Cyberarts Gallery, features art games for viewers to play. The 80-foot-tall multi-screen LED marquee outside the convention center, which is programmed by Boston Cyberarts, is displaying six videos inspired by gaming culture.

With the marquee as their stage, the super-short videos dazzle, with giant tigers and battling pandas, but the games at the gallery are more engrossing.
