What’s going on in the Second Arts?

I’ll try the open thread approach this week – Anyone with a Second Life art exhibition (especially those using the Second Life virtual world as a tool in creating the artwork, as opposed to those that simply use it as a vehicle to display RL works), post your information in the comments.  Don’t forget a SLURL so we can teleport over!

If you’ve seen a great art display by someone else and want to share the knowledge, please post as well in the comments.

To kick things off, I’ll reprint a release I received after the fold.  I can’t wait to see what you have to report from the Grid!

New pieces, artist at Oyster Bay

A few new pieces to tell you about at Oyster Bay – all of which are more than worth checking out…

First off, Cheen Pitney offers us BZZZZZD – a wonderful abstract version of the classic hummingbird. I hope his texture work comes through on this photo…it’s a creative way of designing the wings and head of the bird. Oh – the body is a cool rotating texture as well.

Breeze Winnfield offers us indecision! – a nifty kinetic piece bringing light, movement and pulsating, changing colors together for a real crowd-pleaser. Breeze tells me that this is quite the popular piece. A single snapshot doesn’t do it justice, but here’s my best try:

Lastly, our newest artisan at Oyster Bay – Alizarin Goldflake. Her “dynamic art” style is beautiful from afar, or entrancing when you come within! We’ve got a couple pieces, Red & Black Stormclouds and Frosted Spruce Lace 1.2, for your viewing pleasure.

Great pieces, all!  Come check them out!
