Early last week I viewed several current gallery exhibits which I’m going to share the landmarks to so you can enjoy them as well. At Gallery 23 at Virtual Chelsea Hotel six artists are showing work through August. On the left in the photo above is shown work by Pepper Chaffe. On the right are Decayed Maps by Klaus. Other exhibitors are Jim Garand, Gjo Bing, Pi and John B.

At La Maison d’Aneli in Virtual Holland through August are works by Kicca Igaly, Red Bikcin, Vonniethefox, Terra Merhyem and Rage Darkstone. The photo above shows art by Vonniethefox with a glimpse of Kicca Igaly’s in the background to the right.

The colorful pieces by Vonniethefox are animated and I find them delightful.

‘Absences’, a photo exhibit by Melusina Parkin is at Nitroglobus Roof Gallery. The sculptures are by Nitro Fireguard.

You can pick up an intro notecard written by Melusina which begins in part: “Absence is a negative concept: it means that something should be there and it doesn’t. So, when we look at an empty place – a room, a seashore, a road or even a chair – we can’t avoid thinking of something or somebody who has been or will be there. That’s even more true when a world, including nature and landscape, is entirely made by humans, like Second Life does.”

At the AiR Gallery of InterstellART is Pieces of a Whole by Wintergeist. There are colorful pieces exhibiting too, not shown in my photo above.

Last but not least in my mind, are six of my works (plus blackboard texture) at Montara Bridge Works Gallery. Expressing different moods and strategies of my First and Second Lives during this summer, the exhibit is titled ‘Subtle Maneuvers’ inspired by a line in a letter Franz Kafka wrote in 1912: “Time is short, my strength is limited, the office is a horror, the apartment is noisy and if a pleasant, straightforward life is not possible then one must try to wiggle through by subtle maneuvers.”
