Where Have You Been? Cesa Gallery

In this episode of our bi-week­ly (ie each episode runs for about two weeks) series, “Where Have You Been?” — where we sug­gest places to go and things to do around the Sec­ond Life Grid — hosts Cale­do­nia Sky­tow­er and Elrik Mer­lin dis­cuss the excit­ing new pho­tog­ra­phy gallery opened by long-term SL res­i­dent Ste­vie Basevi.

Where Have You Been: QT Gallery

The lat­est episode of our orig­i­nal series, “Where Have You Been?” which sug­gests things to do and places to vis­it around the Sec­ond Life Grid, this time vis­its the QT Gallery on the Sev­ery region.

It’s the home gallery of long-time Sec­ond Life res­i­dent and artist quadrapop, whose vir­tu­al art­work includes every­thing from two dimen­sion­al wall pan­els, to more tra­di­tion­al 3‑D sculp­tures, to incred­i­ble three dimen­sion­al works full of col­or and motion.

Learn more by tun­ing in at 12 noon or 4pm SLT/Pacific on these Sat­ur­days and Wednes­days: July 22, 26 and 29, and August 2 and 5.

The Glinka Gallery — Featuring artist Lash VV

June is Pride Month in the Unit­ed States and many oth­er coun­tries, and that’s just one of the rea­sons that we’re fea­tur­ing Wolf­gang Glinka’s Glin­ka Gallery in this edi­tion of “Where Have You Been?”.

For those who might not know, Pride Month start­ed in 1969 in the Unit­ed States as a response to the Stonewall riots, which served as a cat­a­lyst for the gay rights move­ment in the Unit­ed States and around the world. The obser­vance has grown and expand­ed over the years, and Pride Month cel­e­brates LGBTQIA+ cul­ture as well as work­ing to build rights awareness.

The Glin­ka Gallery holds reg­u­lar exhi­bi­tions and per­for­mances  on  the gallery’s five floors, fea­tur­ing fine art, sculp­ture, pho­tog­ra­phy, poet­ry, music and dance.

The Edge Gallery — in black & white

Kul­ti­vate Mag­a­zine is a pub­li­ca­tion about the cul­tur­al aspects of Sec­ond Life — and a lot more! Its goal is to sup­port art, cul­ture, pho­tog­ra­phy, music, and fashion.

Kultivate’s endeav­ours in Sec­ond Life include the mag­a­zine (of course) but their grid pres­ence is sig­nif­i­cant, incor­po­rat­ing, among oth­er things, a num­ber of gal­leries includ­ing The Edge Gallery of Black & White Imagery, which is the sub­ject of this programme.

The Edge Gallery specif­i­cal­ly fea­tures black and white imagery and art. We take a more detailed look at the cur­rent exhib­it, which just opened, show­ing a vari­ety of artists with unique approach­es to mono­chrome 2‑D imagery.

Where Have You Been? visits The Temple of the Divine Feminine

In this episode of our orig­i­nal series, “Where Have You Been?” we vis­it The Tem­ple of the Divine Fem­i­nine, on SLEA Region 2. It’s the cre­ation of 20 women artists and cre­ators coor­di­nat­ed by KismaK­SR Res­i­dent, and occu­pies a full region  — a very full region — with mes­sages cel­e­brat­ing fem­i­nine pow­er, cre­ativ­i­ty, and voic­es, includ­ing some impor­tant focal issues.

The instal­la­tion is divid­ed into four major themed areas arranged like a med­i­cine wheel. Each area has an entry gallery, a space for invo­ca­tion, and the tem­ple itself. Each of these four areas aligns with the four ele­ments — air, fire, water, and earth — and are laid out along the major axes of the compass.
