As a large chunk of the planet is at least grey, if not covered in snow, why not curl up at home with some excellent virtual culture! There is so much wonderful art opening this weekend in SL, and we’ve already highlighted three must-see exhibitions thus far:
Rose Borchovski’s ‘The Arrival’ opened yesterday at LEA 23, in which her Susas return for more misadventure. A multi-layered and multi-media work (sound on!), Rose’s installations just keep getting better and better in my view. And while you are there, many of the other LEA exhibits are open as well, so you can check the LEA blog for details on those.
Bryn Oh’s newest Immersiva work ‘Imogen and the Pigeons’ officially opens today, so don’t be surprised if it is a busy sim. It is well worth the effort as Bryn delivers another intricate tale to explore. This is not a quick trip though, so make sure you have at least an hour to spare to fully enjoy this work (I believe it took PJ and I a couple, as we were so engrossed).
And Saffia gave us a jigsaw peek at Fuschia Nightfire’s new installation ‘Winter Outlined’, where you can pop in for some very unique skating fun!
If that wasn’t enough (and it’s never enough with great art), Stephen Venkman’s show ‘Past Present Future’ opens at the stunning Elephant and Seadryke Gallery at Eliza Wierwight’s Patron, today at 2pm SLT.
Venk tells us a bit about himself:
A resident of SL for almost 7 years. I started taking images in SL to chronicle the people I met and the creations I encountered. Once I was introduced to Corel Paint and Photoshop, the realization of pushing the envelope with my images was born. A first life artist in music only, I stumbled upon Second Life. I have since been involved with many shows in-world and one real life show in Europe at the Museum of History in Florence Italy. After being invited to show at Second Life’s 4th Birthday celebration, I was invited to show in the first multi- artist shows at “The Cannery” gallery owned by Rezzable and ran by Vint Falken and Shoshana Epsilon. I was also asked to join Avatrait Gallery as a featured artist, then to their board of directors, and also gallery curator/manager. I have since slowed down on my gallery curating to take more time creating . I’ve opened up a shop for male shapes, and continue expanding my line of in-world characters. Resident photographer for a handful of magazines, I’m never in lack of something to do in SL. I am very interested in environmental design and making my own textures. Currently residing on my Sim with fellow designers, creators and photographers as neighbor, along with a few virtual pets. Life is good!
And with so much wonderful art, Second Life is good indeed!
