Inara Pey: Living in a Modemworld

Bare Rose Art Gallery: Owl Dragonash

Owl Dragonash has been a long-term patron of the arts in Second Life. She has supported artists through her curation of multiple art spaces, including most recently her own Hoot Suite Gallery, and she has done much to promote live music in Second Life, as well a providing huge support for a range of arts groups and locations in-world.

Owl has also been a keen SL traveller and blogger  over the years,  capturing regions, parcels, arts events and more. Over the years, it’s been my pleasure and privilege to come to know her and to experience first-hand her support, so it is will a genuine sense of pleasure that I  hope I can help turn the spotlight on Owl’s own work as a Second Life photographer and recorder of places to visit and appreciate through her new exhibition that is open through…

Inara may be best known for her amazing Blog Living in a Modem World.

She has shared with her readers art, landscapes, boats, planes, viewers, space, opinions, builds and so much more. Personally my second life would be a lot less informed and explored without Inara’s Modem Word Blog.  I have been following her writing since 2009 and exploring her tips on art and regions.

Jambo: A Voyage to Africa - June 2020
Giraffes in the Grass, Jambo, June 2020 By Inara Pey

This exhibit at Konect Art Gallery features many places Inara has visited and blogged since 2014. The landscape photos Inara shares offer a journey through Second Life. The evolution of regions people have created for our enjoyment. Any photo that catches your eye in this exhibit you can search n her blog and go vet the place it was taken if t is still open.

Kintsugi, May 2020
Gates on the Water, Kintsugi, May 2020 by Inara Pey

Inara’s Photo “Gates on the Water” brings to mind calm and serenity. You can inhale and smell sakura blossoms and fresh water. Exactly what I felt when visiting the Kintsugi – Spirited Beyond region that Inara Blogged in May 2020. I had to go see it and with Inara’s post fresh in my mind I felt a deeper connection to what I was seeing. Knowing the regions creation story definably added to the connection. 

“Woman of eclectic tastes, very involved in virtual worlds (particularly Second Life). Sometimes musician (piano, guitar), sometimes writer, occasional kinky bitch, frequently confused (generally during the hours when eyes are required to be open). “

Inara brings detail to her writing sharing bits of the creator with us. Each of her landscape photos can be traced to where she took the photo giving the viewer a bit more  and the ability to go see too. In my experience her insight has led me to explore wonderful places in Second Life.

Do visit Inara Pey’s exhibit “Second Life Landscape’s” @ Konect Art Gallery

Before many children learn the directions to their house, they learn how to get to Neverland, Anouk Lefavre shares that wonder.

.★.«”Second star to the right and straight on ’til morning.” ».★.

A quote in Anouk’s profile seems to describe her well. This quote is from Disney’s Peter Pan.

Before many children learn the directions to their house, they learn how to get to Neverland, a wonderful place filled with pirates, children with no bed times.

Anouk seems to keep the energy of wonder in her view and photos.

Here is a teleport to Anouk’s showing.

“Still Melencholy”

Opening date: 5th October 202 – Closing date: 25th October 2020

“My inspiration for this set of images came from the season Autumn, which is a time when the sun’s angle changes, the weather becomes cooler, and all of those beautiful leaves earn a fiery glow before falling… shades of red, orange, yellow, yellow-green, brown, and the colors between.”

Anouk  Lefavre’s notecard for the exhibit
"every lighthouse..."
“every Lighthouse” By Anouk  Lefavre

“Still Melancholy” defiantly embraces autumn with both color and mood.

  I was particularly drawn to a duet of photos Melancholy #1 & #2 together they depict a beautiful fall wooded area on the water with 2 homes. All set on a rocky island and containing the reflection of it all.

Anouk creates the vibe with her wind light choice and editing of her photos. In this case a dreamy melancholy and fall look.

The adventure begins souls of dreams
“The adventure begins souls of dreams” Sept 2020 By Blues Rocker

“Coming from a musical background, I have had a very keen appreciation of the creative process, whether it be in music, the performing arts, painting, writing or photography. Having that interest sparked my involvement in the artistic possibilities of Second Life”

Blues Rocker

Currently Blues is exhibiting his work at:

Desertscapes An Exhibition Of Desert Landscapes
poster by Blues Rocker

Isme Fine Arts Galleries – “Desertscapes”

Click here for your teleport to Blues exhibit.

This exhibit depicts landscapes by Blues 2 pieces really caught my eye.  

“Somewhere Around Taos” and “Moon over Grand Canyon at Dusk”

What kept my attention in both of these pieces is the realism, you feel right there looking at them. After staring for a while, I still do not know if these were shot in second Life or his waking Life.

Though hmm the lm to Isme Fine ART Galleries is Grand Canyon south…Either way the mood and view are worth seeing! 

Club LA curated By Wintergeist featuring the art of Blues Rocker 

Click here for your teleport to Blues exhibit at Club LA

The is a non-titled exhibit consisting of 6 pieces. Blues displayes a mix of his dark and light work bringing the exhibit together by tone and eye. 

“Being of Two Minds” an older piece of Blues always catches my attention it depicts a drawing apart and the color palette reflects the image perfectly. 

“Sorrow in the Desert” was used for the poster Image and depicts Mistero Hifeng’s sculpture. The neutral desert colors makes the mage pop with clean lines drawing you in.

“Antler Fille” by Blues Rocker

Blues Rocker also has a Permanent Gallery at Artists Village in Campbell Coast.

Here is your teleport to Blues @ Artists Village Campbell Coast

My current favorite piece at his Campbell Coast Gallery is titled “Bliss” A sweet Black and white piece clearly depicting bliss on his subject’s face.

Looking at it makes me smile.

“I like to be diverse in my works, and I love taking portraits, the more artistic and esoteric and landscapes equally. Wherever my muse takes me at any given time.  Really, the only limits are those of the realms of the imagination. “

Magic, creation, fantasy, story, humor are the essence of Gidgy Adagio. She communicates with you through how you feel while viewing her builds and photos. Have you experienced her work?

Gidgy Adagio is exhibiting at

Hoot Suite Art Gallery

October 4th – November 1st

This magical woman has such a wonderful eye and energy!

Second Life can be a beautiful place to be creative and explore. You can nearly do anything in this pixel world. The friendships here are very real, the pixels are not. For me SL is about creating stories. Using the imagination. Smiles and lots of laughter. I hope the reader experiences both!”

“No-one saves us but ourselves….” Gidgy Adagio

Gidgy Adagio has been a resident of SL since 2010. She has been bringing her awe and wonder to us through her Art for quite awhile.

I was introduced to Gidgy’s humor and talent in 2014 and had the privilege of being in a wonderful Flicker group created by Coobs called incidental imagery with Coobs, Ermandalee, Caitlan Tobias, Jewell Wirefly, Gidgy Adagio, Daallee, Karena Zhangsun, Thus Yootz, Kallyca McCallen, Cate Storymoon and Owl Dragonash . In the group we had weekly photo assignments to complete. It was a lot of fun and we all got to know each other as well as learn a bit and practice!. Life the universe and all eventually caught up with me and everyone in the group and we faded away to our own pursuits and still friends.

Sometimes with the waves of change, we find our purpose. Gidgy Adagio

Gidgy began creating regions.

Her first region creation was Hobbinton n 2017.

(existing only in memory and photo now)

“All the world is filled with magic, but the greatest magic of all is found within.”

Savor Serenity & Gidgy exhibiting at Hoot Suite Art Gallery
Savor Serenity by Owl Dragonash

Gidgy did a redesign in 2018 of the Savor Serenity region keeping the magic and fantasy energy that is so her signature. This gorgeous magical region is well worth your time. get lost in the fantasy build of forest and dragons, plant and myth. let the fog and stars guide you as you wander the depths and delight of each curve and detail.

“Many moons ago, many sunrises ago, Gaia called. Her song singing the essence of our being, the calling of the soul, the oneness of our dream, and as our consciousness arises, Gaia smiles.”
