The Raglan Shire ArtWalk 2012 opens Sunday May 6th, displaying the close to 2000 works of over 130 artists over four sims in an outdoor setting. The show runs from May 6th through May 27th. Artists gridwide converge to exhibit their RL photography and art and SL photography and sculpture in this annual arts festival, hosted by the tiny community of the Raglan Shire sim cluster.
“When I first opened these sims for tinies, I started ArtWalk in 2007, inspired by the ArtWalk of Seattle, Washington,” said Zayn Till, Magistrate of Raglan Shire. “We want to give artists a fabulous opportunity to exhibit both RL and SL works. Over the years it has grown into one of the biggest art festivals in SL.”
2D art of all kinds is exhibited along the hedgerows in the central area of Raglan Shire sim. SL sculptural works are exhibited among the trees and along the shores of the western half of Heron Forest in Heron Shire sim, in the parks on Morning Shire and Raglan Commons sim.
TP kiosks to all display locations are throughout the grounds of the festival.
“We are so excited to see such a wonderful collection of excellent works exhibited by the artists of Second Life,” said
Teal Freenote, ArtWalk Director, herself one of the exhibiting artists. “Fabulous artists, both tiny and big, make this a visual feast. What better way to enjoy May than wandering the lush grounds of the Shires reveling in wonderful art!”
A few of the many artists exhibiting are Sledge Roffo, Van Caerndow, Corcosman Voom, Cat Boccaccio, briawinde Magic, StarZ33 McCullough, Gleman Jun, Nessuno Myoo, Teal Freenote, Kicca Igaly, Revontuli Oh, Kicca Igaly and Carlotta Ceawlin.
Avatars of all shapes and sizes are welcome to visit the show during May and enjoy wandering these enchanting sims dedicated to tiny avatars.
