Edition 39: visions of an aspie | A girl's best friends | In my mood | Mistero Hifeng | Paula Cloudpainter | AmandaT Tamatzui
SPECIAL EXHIBITIONS IN PROGRESS
The Limoncello is home to a personal collection of art, dating back to our founder's early days in SL. The first item was bought in 2007. The most recent was bought today. We've always held special exhibitions occasionally. Our pace is leisurely; they run for three months or more, rather than the usual month elsewhere.
The most recent such exhibition is: Visions of an Aspie by Xia Chieng. We thank those of you who attended the opening last Monday. We hope you enjoyed the party as much as we did!
Xia's exhibition continues until December 31st. Don't miss it. It's amazing and features several new works shown for the first time in Second Life®.
Also in progress until December 31st is A girl's best friends, by I am Free. Each panel on display is a slideshow of images, so be sure to see them all.
At the Jishnu Room for special exhibitions at our home gallery in Bellisseria, the Amona Savira retrospective has come to an end. We thank our good friend Jo (JMB Balogh) for lending us her collection of Amona's work. We are in discussions with two artists about a new exhibition in that space.
The longest-running special exhibition in our history is In my Mood by Eylinea Seabird. It will continue indefinitely until Eylinea comes up with a new installation to replace it. We are in no rush. We still love it and visit it regularly.
You can find the SLURLs to take you to all current special exhibitions in the sidebar.
This week there are four new artworks to be seen on the 14th Floor of the LG Tower. They are Woman in worship, by AmandaT Tamatzui (the SL avi of RL painter Amanda Tomasoa), cloud sea stone, by paula cloudpainter, Blue reflets in the night, by Ourane NuevaVida (ourane), and Nemica Mia, by Mistero Hifeng.
The first was bought from Amanda's current exhibition at Elven Falls (go straight down the street of galleries from the arrival point and it's on the right). The second was bought from Paula's current exhibition at the Janus Gallery. The third was bought from Mistero directly at his gallery.
Amanda is a close friend of Dave and Fenella and her joyous, uplifting work already features in our collections. Mistero Hifeng is one of the most famous artists in Second Life® and needs no introduction here. Paula's watercolours however were new to us. We saw them at her exhibition's opening party and liked them well enough but needed to return and look again quietly to appreciate them. We are glad we gave them a second look – and yes, there's a moral to that story! We bought Ourane's painting at her debut exhibition, now running at the excellent Tango with Nottoo dance club, where Fenella danced the tango at her vernissage.
Until next week, dear Limoncello friends, stay arty!
