Talia Fournier opens at Mill Pond on Thursday

After meeting Talia at Phinn Boffin’s opening at Second Arts, she invited me to look at her works. Talia’s style is moody, somewhat raw, definitely post-processed….she says it evolves from the DC Comics’ “Sandman” series, and I believe her. She opens a show of roughly 5-6 pieces at the Twilight Peace Gallery in Mill Pond on Thursday at 7PM SLT. Winston Ackland will be performing live, and you can meet Talia there. Come check out this impresive virtual photographer!

Art gallery growth in SL passes 600 mark


From Sasun Steinbeck, leader of the Art Gallery Owners SL group:


Art Is Alive and Well in the World of Second Life – Over 600 Art Galleries Confirmed As Growth Continues

On Feb 16th, the Galleries of Second Life list published by Sasun Steinbeck broke the 600 mark with 455 general galleries, 101 photography galleries, and 46 erotic galleries cataloged on her well-known list. Contrary to fears of a mass migration of creativity out of Second Life, this demonstrates that art is continuing on a steady growth curve for the benefit and enrichment of all the citizens of Second Life.

“I’ve been maintaining this list since may 2006, and I’m extremely happy and proud to see us reach this amazing level of growth in the art world of Second Life,” said Sasun Steinbeck. “This is truly a milestone event.”

Sasun Steinbeck uses a sophisticated scripted network of kiosks throughout Second Life that she designed and implemented to automate the collection of current data on all of the art galleries in Second Life, enabling weekly updates to be published via notecard and a gallery tour HUD distributed by the kiosks as well as her blog. This is her 96th edition of the list.

The current edition of the Galleries of Second Life list can be found at
