Owl Dragonash is a genuine tour de force in Second Life: she curates art, organises events and artists across various venues; she organises music events (and arranges musicians for exhibitions and the like); she provides PR support to galleries and groups; she has her own blog with a focus on music, art and places to visit, and she brings an incredible amount of energy, shining enthusiasm and dedication to all that she does.
She is, in equal measure to all of the above, a gifted Second Life photographer-artist. It’s therefore a pleasure to be able to write about an exhibition of her own work she is self-hosting at her Hoot Suite Gallery in Bellisseria.
I always find visits to boutique galleries in SL a pleasure, as they offer compact exhibitions one can easily take in and appreciate. In this, Linden Homes of Bellisseria…
Mareea’s Summer Vibes at Eulennest Art GallerySummer Vibes is the title of an exhibition of art by Mareea Farrasco that is open through until the start of October 2021 at the Eulennest Gallery, and which I dropped into over the weekend.
Mareea is both the owner / curator of IMAGO Land and the IMAGO Land Gallery, and she is also an accomplished art in Second Life, producing both landscape images and avatar studies with a deft hand and eye for detail. As the name might suggest, Summer Vibes is a selection of Mareea’s art focused on summer scenes.
Mareea’s Summer Vibes at Eulennest Art Gallery
Created in Second Life, the 14 images presented at Eulennest present summertime scenes, many with a coastal theme, and all of which have a strong focus on nature and flowers. Most of the pieces are finished as watercolours, their tone light and airy…

If you Know Bjoy & Doc or have been to Campbell Coast you have experienced generosity and such warm souls. Bjoy is dealing with some rough times due to her illness and unfortunately had to sell Campbell Coast. I hope she finds the time to rest and recover and comes back refreshed. She said she will pop in soon!
Winning, the gentleman who bought Campbell Coast is into continuing the Community and vibe. Winning has been part of Campbell Coast for the past 8 months and thankfully is committed to the beatification of mainland too! Kitty Mills will continue to build our beautiful mainland. There may be a few changes but the community and idea will continue. Yay!!
Bijoux a friend and CC member bought the Pier area and intends on keeping it part of Campbelll coast as well. She hosts shops and beautiful green space as well as a rezz zone with sailing all over linden waters.
I am continuing to facilitate the Artists at Campbell Coast Village happily!!
Wishing Bjoy the best and hoping to see her soon as well as being excited that Campbell Coast will continue!
“What’s swimming in your unconscious ready to emerge and take flight?”
Vanessa Jane at her Sl18B exhibit
What a quote! And really we all owe it to ourselves to think on this, I mean what is in your unconscious and what do you want to manifest. Amidst our face paced lives we can lose focus and just be doing with out creating the life you want to create for yourself. We do hold the paintbrush that creates our day, week, month, year ..life. Take time to direct how you live and what you want your life to hold.
Basically that’s a glimpse of where that quote took my mind. This build is exactly to theme (Hidden worlds) for SL18B, our minds do contain multitudes of hidden worlds. I Love visiting sl and seeing what people choose to create!
Makes you think and well you have to go see because my photos do not show how wild and intense what she has created is. Vanessa Jane is (vanessajane66) has an Art degree and has been making art for a long time in her life currently in Second Life she is a 2D and 3D Artist.
“In my SL 2D Art I strive for ‘painterly realism’ and have a passion for capturing the elusive light and life in a scene, which brings a unique atmosphere. I bring my real life training as an artist to my aesthetic sensibility in the images I create in SL. When I get the chance I also enjoy opportunities to do 3D art using tortured prims.”
This particular photo by Vanessa delighted me with the way she used light to draw the eye to the “Ruin in the woods”. She has grasped “capturing the elusive light” wonderfully! I could fill the page with her work but really go to SL18B and see her build then go hop to her galleries and see her flicker you will enjoy it! I did.
Vanessa Jane is defiantly an Artist to go see and follow!
