The current exhibits at La Maison d’ Aneli opened October 26 with the next exhibits opening November 29. At the landing, upstairs, is the vibrant 3D installation shown above.
Across from Tammas’ work is a multi-level installation by Xirana Oximoxi which requires a fair amount of time to take in properly. It focuses on historical and current situations regarding Catalonia with relevant reminders about human rights, Civil and Political Rights, A Global Inventory of Organized Social Media Manipulation and the importance to THINK before you post.
Also near the landing is an hommage to HOLALA Alter ( March 8, 2008 — October 20, 2017) by Duna Gant with a couple of animated works by Alter.
Moving downstairs are the real life paintings of VanGogh Rembranch on the left.
Photographs by Kalijah Chrome on the right.
Also on this level, in a large, white room, are a 3D and 2D works by Morlita Quan.
When I received a group notice about an exhibit at one of my favorite stores, Never Totally Dead, I went with a friend as soon as possible.
“We are happy to announce that, for the first time, l’Orangerie de Valpennac will host an art exhibition.
“Tete de l’Art” by Djedge Freschi will be visible in this new Gallery in November and December 2017.”
The 15 works of art are called paintings, look like collages, and can be purchased separately or as a collection for 50% off. I found them to be amusingly offensive.
Never Totally Dead has classic old manor homes, historical items, many haunted pieces, antique furniture and curiosities. I enjoy the group gifts.
The collection is well suited for their L’ Orangerie de Valpennac and would be wonderful to stumble across on a grand estate.
I chose this piece for some ruins that chickens roam in at Shoshin Acres in Sedge.
Recently I’ve visited the LA Gallery several times after new exhibits have opened. I’ve been aware of the place since about February of last year but it has only been during the last few weeks that I’ve been able to check it out.
Opening earlier today is Visions by Kimeu Korg at Gallery Level 1 South.
Part of the artist statement:
“There you will see my own Vision about how i understand the world and life of Photography. From me a good picture have to tell a story, a flash of Life, a moment in time and space, can be done in so many ways and Second Life is an excellent platform from create moments.”
Across from Korg’s exhibit is Transitions by Myra Wildmist which opened on October 22.
From Myra’s artist CV:
My art primarily explores the freedom online communities, specifically Second Life, provide, allowing you to set aside your cultural roles and explore other roles. Real life cultural roles are necessary for a functioning society, but they are often extremely confining, almost forcing people into pigeon holes of expected behavior. Second Life gives us all the opportunity to slip out of our pigeon holes and be almost anything we can imagine.
My work is done entirely in-world using SL Windlight, effects, settings, and filters.
Second Life is my medium.”
Above Myra’s exhibit on Level 2, is Photography by John Brianna which has been open the longest. The artist bio contains info on his other exhibits and links to follow his work as do the bios of the other photographers.
Information about Fuyuko (wintergeist) and her Club L A and Gallery can be obtained at the landing. Walking through the gallery and out the back, you’ll find a peaceful park and then an office/studio space with a catalog of Fuyuko’s work.
Open November 7 through January 2018 at Montara Bridge Works, the Berries series is a 2D digital art meditation incorporating virtual photography.
accessible to more than
just the lofty ones
the hard and bitter
mushy ones with no real substance
savor the moments
of the real and the sweet

You are more than welcome to stop by and my latest gallery exhibit.
Art Project 3 opened at the Blue Orange on October 15. The SLurl will take you to the music club. Glancing around, you’ll see the poster on the wall, as shown above. It’s important to click the poster for the notecard which has LMs in case you get lost. (I needed them.) Also there’s a heads up about flashing lights in one of the exhibits. Blue Orange is located on the Adult sim of Empire State Island.
Shown above is DONE by Rebecca Bashly. I found it by walking through the opening in the wall as shown in the right of the top photo. The Art Corner has had a renovation since the last project and there are different routes to get around.
Art by Ini.
I enjoyed the presentation of the art and the care put into the gallery ambiance. From the notecard: “No pressure about advanced lights and WL, but it could help.” I don’t recall changing anything to take these photos.
Shown above is work by Xirana Oximoxi.
I walked through a couple of installations and then didn’t follow through into the hallway with the pulsing lights, located in the area shown in the center of the photo above. The area can be approached from another direction too, where I saw non-pulsing pieces by the artist, Nevereux.
Back tracking, I looked into a room behind a blue door and found this vibrant installation by Tubal Amiot.
This is another hallway leading to more art.
Mind Game by NicoleX Moonwall and Gitu Aura. NicoleX has created machinima of Blue Orange installations and events which can be seen on the vimeo channel, Gumbo Productions.
Before the end of my tour, I needed to check the landmarks on the notecard to find the areas I missed. Other artists in this project are Jadeyu Fhang, Theda Tammas, and Chibbchichi.
Bryn Oh installation 51, Photos By You All, is shown above. I’m pleased that I didn’t overlook the note card info about the installation and Bryn’s talk on Not Possible in Real Life. The hall with the photos, photographers names underneath, is to the left of where I began, shown in the top photo.
There is much to see here.
There’s been some great changes to the neighborhood around Wanderlust Art Park. Recently a few seasonal decorations have been added as well.
From left to right, the 2D art is by Klaus, Pearl Grey, Veyot and Saul Goodie. Scarecrow sculpture by Silas Merlin.
From left to right, screen by Lynette Trinity, digital art by Elle Thorkveld and collage by baker Bloch.
First life photography by Adriana Biziou. The 2D piece on the right is by Klaus and contains a notecard quote on compassion.
Works by ChrysTeRox, serra Qendra, Melusina Parkin and Wheedle.
Also on display is a Tesla Wireless Phone by Kimika Ying in the park side and a Victorian Crossing Signal on the Cafe side; both can be purchased.
Both levels of the bird house display works by serra Qendra.
Four works by the talented Seraphim Placebo (Chris Attwell).
At least three of the group members have builds at Radical Ritual, Burn2 which opens Saturday, October 21. Landmarks to their plots are contained in the poster.
The lower level of the gallery at Wanderlust Cafe Extension holds a sculpture by Silas Merlin and art by Giselle Seeker.
Kate Silver and Mango Lassi are also exhibiting. Upstairs, there is digital art by Saul Goodie.
The vase is by Lynette Trinity, near the Victorian Crossing Signal.
The Cafe has indoor and outdoor seating. The outdoor area plus cafe rooftop is showing Pockets of Light, blogged here.
Recently opening last week at La Maison d’Aneli in Virtual Holland, is an exhibition by six artists showing 2D works (although according to bios, some don’t consider themselves artists). You will arrive at the landing on the first floor.
Shown above are some pieces by Sweet Susanowa, who is exhibiting a variety of styles.
Therese Carfagno’s works occupy the space under Sweet’s and also show a variety of different styles. I especially like the piece, shown in the back from this angle, of panoramas taken at different times of day.
The first floor space has had some structural changes I’d not seen before to accommodate the works of three artists.
Going down to the ground floor, you’ll find real life photos by Nils Urqhart on the right.
On the left, paintings by Viloup.
In a large room behind the stairs are works by Gitu Aura. The notecard for Gitu contains a landmark to her studio with a lovely rooftop garden.
I enjoyed viewing the exhibit and reading the bios.
Everywhere and Nowhere by JadeYu Fhang is one of two installations at LEA 15.
There’s an exquisite, looping, toning sound on the sim, most noticeable near the landing and fading as you move about.
There are various convenient poseballs on the ladders. We like to photograph our avatars in Second Life; it’s also great for those who cam around. I chose to fly around the installation. (I found no spiders!)
At the landing of Split Screen Installation Space, LEA 15 you will see several boards. Two are teleports to the installations. (You can teleport from each installation to the other.)
Another board has a slideshow of previous Split Screen Installation exhibits. “The Split Screen Installation Space is a curated place for artists to develop large installations, often not possible in the physical world.”
“Dividni Shostakovich has been curating exciting 3D installations by a variety of Second Life artists at his Split Screen Installation Space since Dec 2010.”
These photos are cropped only, raw photos.
Yesterday I posted about the other exhibit at Split Screen Installation Space, The Games We Play by Krystali Rabeni.
