ART UNBOUND - RECONSTRUCT
The third ART UNBOUND pop-up gallery is coming soon, brought to you by Infinite Productions in partnership with the Limoncello Art Gallery.
The show is called Reconstruct and is in the post-war ruins of Tempelhof in the Ceiram Region of Second Life®. The opening party is at 7pm to 9pm SLT on Sunday, October 17th and will feature music from Manx Wharton and DJ Vivienne Dufaux. Dress code is formal and/or 1940's - 1950's wear. Our partner in ART UNBOUND, Cate Infinity, throws some of the best parties in SL and we hope that as many of you as possible will join us!
The show features art by Esta Republic, Cate Infinity, Lux Chiantelle, I am Free, TheGhostOfGhost, Tallulah Winterwolf, Kaela Kilara, Hermes Kondor and Traci Ultsch. Some is new work for the show and some is on loan from the Limoncello Gallery's permanent collection for the duration of the pop-up.
Reconstruct opens on October 17th and will run until November 7th. As usual, there will be a special event stamp to collect at the pop-up gallery for holders of the Bellisseria Passport.
EXPLORING THE METAVERSE EVENT
I am Free, the artist behind our current special exhibition called A Girl's Best Friends at the LG Tower, and Denard Henry are staging an event on October 19th, 2020 at 1pm SLT. All readers of the Limoncello News will be most welcome. Here's your taxi.
LIMONCELLO NEWS OFFICE CLOSES
For personal reasons, we have closed our editorial office in Port Emyniad. If you are an artist looking for a great location for a gallery (and a kind, wonderful landlord in Bijoux) we recommend you enquire about the vacancy there as soon as possible! We will miss being there very much.
Fenella Allen, who has edited the Limoncello News since it was a weekly notecard newsletter in-world, has left Second Life®. Our owner, Dave, has taken over the role of editor.
The pace of acquisitions will have to slow for the rest of 2021 as our current special exhibitions take up most of our available prims. We need to keep the remaining allowance free for operational eventualities. However, we couldn't resist a final splurge. All the new acquisitions are on the 14th Floor of the LG Tower.
The first is A splatter of light, by Stephen Venkman. It was acquired from his current exhibition at the Carmel Art "community", where Stephen's home gallery is our neighbour. The second is another from the Geisha in the Soul series, by Caly Applewhyte, to add to Geisha in the Soul - 04, which hangs on the 3rd Floor of the LG Tower. This one is titled Geisha in the Soul - 10. We try to ensure our collection contains a wide representation of artists working in SL and it's rare for us to buy more than one from the same series. However, these are wonderful artworks and we simply failed to resist. It is a personal collection, after all, so all the parameters we set ourselves can be waived at will!
Third is Approaching Airship, by Bif Mopp – an aviation artist in RL whose work is currently exhibited at Elven Falls. Dave had the pleasure of giving Bif a tour of the Airship Limoncello recently. Apart from explaining its history as the original home of our gallery, Dave also told him of a trip he is planning in RL to take a pleasure cruise on a Zeppelin. We think he now understands why our friend AmandaT Tamatzui thought this artwork of his was a good gift for Dave and we thank her for it!
Our final acquisition this week (and perhaps for a while) is IL FUMO UCCIDE, by CioTToLiNa Xue. We are big fans of CioTToLiNa's sculptures and wish we had the available prims to exhibit more of them. You can see more of them at her gallery.
Until next week, Limoncello Friends, stay arty!
