"Saying goodbye for now.." by Callipygian Christensen, posted on Flickr

From exhibition organizer Callipygian Christensen…this is one of those moments where it’s completely appropriate to lament the impermanence of Second Life builds.  

 

The Refuge and Expansion has been installed in the Wales sims for 10 months – a long time in SL, but it feels like such a short time as I sit and say goodbye. Sunset falls on The Refuge and Expansion on Sunday May 31st. There will be a final benefit concert for Heifer International from 3 -6 PM SL time, featuring Colemarie Soleil, Joaquin Gustav and Kelvinblue Oh.

Please join us to support a great cause, and to say goodbye (for now) to the Refuge. 

Get your last looks in now!

Machinima: AM Radio cornucopia

I stumbled across this machinima, which compiles many of AM Radio’s great builds…true works of art into themselves.  Thought you’d like to see, too.

Now this looks good…

I know nothing about this artist, but I’ve never been disappointed by anything at Tary Allen’s LX Gallery:

Last Day of May celebration at Lauk’s Nest

Courtesy of Lauk’s Nest owner Graceful Aeon…this is one of the truly wonderful builds on the Second Life grid and has been a topic of interest at Second Arts for some time. It’s a fantastic place to visit regardless of the events, but the activities give you more than ample reason to return.

Bay City’s 1st Anniversary Parade

Big day yesterday, and thanks to Ilsa Hesse for taking these photos to document the fun and creativity in Bay City.  Enjoy!

Morgana Nagorski’s “Circus Quirkus” at Kelly Yap’s gallery


Kelly Yap has a number of artists contributing to the circus-themed art show (replete with an endless loop of carnival music and sounds), and the works of Special Jewell and Morgana Nagorski stood out for me.

Never having seen Morgana’s works before, I’ll give her the snapshot this time – but both mini-exhibtions are strong. Morgana does some wonderful things with textures and light, not to mention the loose interpretation of the theme that begins to explore the relationships between performance and burlesque. I REALLY liked her work and hope to see more soon!

This show is on display until June 12.
