In addition, Jazz Calhern, owner of Jazz by the Sea Gallery, has scattered a collection of her breath-taking avatar art among the flowers and birds in her garden by the sea!  Come and see, and listen to lovely streamed Irish music!

Coming REAL soon…

That’s right, my first-ever photo exhibition.  Jazz Calhern (who, as opposed to me, is a really good inworld photographer) has been on me to show some photos.  I finally caved…and we’re almost to the opening of the show!  There will be three photographers (including me) in the gallery, and Jazz is setting up a park-like photo walk.

More news as it becomes available…

The Second Arts “Meet Our Artisans” event!


It’s the unofficial grand opening of the new Second Arts Photography gallery. 6 great SL photographers (and me) on display. And a full sim dancing away to the opening of Doubledown Tandino’s “Quirk” tour!

The view from up here

With all that’s been alluded to, I suppose I’d best share a little of the excitement to come at Oyster Bay. So let me get positioned, and I’ll pull the curtain back for you…

There, that’s better! Why don’t you jump into “Moresville” for the scoop?

Arts for Autism Auction recap

Jazzworks Arts for Autism Auction

Over the past weekend, Jazz Calhern of Jazzworks (SLURL link in the side column) and Second Arts Photography fame organized a mammoth auction of SL art for the benefit of those with autism. Here’s her official recap:

From the bottom of my heart, thank you to all who donated to and supported the JazzWorks Gallery ARTS FOR AUTISM Charity Auction on October 27. It was a smashing success, bringing in L$206,877 for autism! WOOT!

Jazz tells me that the top selling piece was photographer Tonu Noorits’ “Ice and Sand” – which fetched a whopping L$29,000. Even my small piece, Intertwined (the pink piece at the bottom of the photo), fetched L$1,300.

All told, Jazz will be writing a check to the Western Australian Autism Association Early Invervention for US$827.00. It’s a small organization and this money will be significant for them. To quote Jazzworks photographer and Arts for Autism SL group owner Indigo Mougin, “They’re totally blown away by the generosity and the creative way in which the funds were raised.”

Many thanks and admiring congratulations are due to Jazz for her leadership on this effort, as well as to the community-minded artists who stepped up and put good works ahead of the almighty buck. I’m very proud to say that a number of Oyster Bay artisans were represented in this auction; it says a lot about the people whose work populates this special little corner of SL.

Of course, tons of photos were taken. Here are a few…starting with one by Daedalus Young:
