White Lebed sent me a sneak preview invite to check out the new AG3 Gallery on AngelGate Island, which opens on April 11th. The opening show is called “Primavera” and looks to be a treat for the senses. Here’s a little from Lebed:
To celebrate the grand opening of the new AngelGate gallery we are very proud to present an amazing collection of the newest art works from 38 Second Life Artists. You will find 3 spacious floors of our gallery filled with all kind of styles and media – from 2D paintings toimmersive Interactive Art. You will see a lot of familiar names as well as new talents making their debut on the SL art scene.
The grand opening party is the 11th and I expect it to be a very popular event. Here is the list of the participating artists (in no particular order):
Alizarin Goldflake, Eme10 Wind, Kristine Kristan, Consuela Caldwell, Strawberry Holiday, Ub Yifu, Spiral Walcher, four Yip, Madcow Cosmos, Blued Food, Shellina Winkler, Solkide Auer, White Lebed, Corcosman Voom, Scarp Godenot, Lippy Korobase, Amaranta Kurka, Poid Mahovlich, Selavy Oh, Xenophile Neurocam, Eifachfilm Vacirca, Bau Ur, Apollo Reinard, Kolor Fall, Filthy Fluno, quadrapop Lane, Glyph Graves, Talia Tokugawa, Artistide Despres, soror Nishi, Yabusaka Loon, Dr Debruyere, Bryn Oh, AuraKyoInsoo, Suzanne Graves, elros Tuominen, Oberon Onmura, Eddiesan Bailey, Pixels Sideways
AngelGate is a non-profit community promoting creative organization and innovative arts.
This is a very strong collection of artisans, and their work largely rises to the occasion of a grand opening event. While I can’t say too much about it, I think visitors will REALLY like Strawberry Holiday’s work.
I could probably write forever on the many pieces and artists involved in this show, but permit me to focus on one piece that caught my fancy, MASQUERADA by Selkide Auer. I’ve never met Selkide and naver seen his (her?) works before. The piece, though, looked like it was a 2D piece of hanging art. Check out this brief video for what it is in actuality:
Too cool. Make sure you get to the opening at AG3 – MASQUERADA is only the tip of the iceberg.
