Blues Rocker at Hoot Suite in Second Life

Inara Pey: Living in a Modemworld

Hoot Suite Gallery: Blues Rocker, February 2021

The Linden Homes in Bellisseria lend themselves to many uses beyond that of home; people have turned them into clubhouses, pubs, cafés group meeting points, museums and galleries. In the latter regard they can be particularly attractive, in that their limited internal space means that they are ideal for what I’ve started calling “pocket exhibitions” – small exhibitions of art that are easy to visit and take in within a cosy environment and which don’t overwhelm visitors in terms of the size or number of pieces on display.

One of the people who has especially leveraged her Linden Home as a gallery space is the incredibly talented and giving Owl Dragonash. Having turned her home into the Hoot Suite Gallery, she uses it to invite artists from across Second Life to exhibit within in for a period of around a month, and…

A tip of the hat

The ever-creative, beautiful inside and out Owl Dragonash has invited me to contribute to her blog. I’m honored and flattered for many reasons.

First, as anyone who has ever met her knows, Owl has one of those spirits that just shines. She is authentic, caring and has an incisive perspective. We first met eight years ago through a mutual friend. It could have been awkward–it sometimes was, but there was always an honesty and a sincerity that kept us connected.

I was a newbie when I met Owl and someone showed me a picture of her in a gallery. I was stunned. It was my first introduction to SL art. She was (and is) incredibly artistic and beautiful. It was a beauty that didn’t rely on copying the latest trend or aping an accepted model, but one that was expressive and creative.

In RL, I am an arts journalist and advocate. In SL? I write about hats. I collect hats. I wear them always, and often my favorite comment is when someone says, “What is on your head?” As of this writing, I have 6,043 hats that I have sorted into my hats folder. I have more than that, but they aren’t sorted yet.

In SL, I also seek out whimsy, which is perhaps why I started collecting hats and my favorite ones are those that break the boundaries of what people perceive as a “hat.”

I once had a blog about hats, so I don’t think I will be writing only about hats here. Rather, I may be writing about those things that Owl inspires: Casting a fresh eye at SL and trying to seek out the beauty in it, the whimsy in it, the connections in it.

That said, my writing will be slow for awhile as RL has been overflowing with writing assignments and I’ll come here only when I’m caught up on deadlines. I am, though, looking forward to exploring with you!

Blues Rocker shares his exhibit “The Many Shades Of Blues” with us. An art exhibit that can lift your out of the blues.

“The Many Shades Of Blues”

Here is your Teleport to Blues exhibit and party

 Blues Rocker is exhibiting through March 6th

 “As for the creating of the photos, I much prefer shooting out on location in the multitude of amazing sims which populate SL than in a studio, as I feel I get much better results that way. Since starting seriously taking photographs in SL I have broadened my horizons in what wonders this virtual world has to offer. Really, the only limits are those of the imagination. “

Blues Rocker

“The Many Shades of Blues” presents a variety of Blues work from both of his lives. HIs style and sense of play brings us different techniques and different subject matter quite a varied show and exhibiting beautiful raw talent.

Who doesn’t love the Blues? I do!

Blues work can bring a smile as you find relatable pieces and feel his sense of play.

Blues also has a space at Campbell Coast Artists Village please come see his work and come by the opening of the village Feb. 14th at noon.

When Daallee and I were curating the Living Room we had Blues exhibit April of 2016.

“The majority of pieces Bluerocker presents at The Living Room are avatar studies which marvellously demonstrate his ability to create a  rich narrative with a single image, making this a captivating display of his work”.

Traci and Moni dual exhibit at the Midgard gallery. Come view these two very different exhibits and what they have in common.

Traci

My first exposure to Traci’s work was  at Nitroglobus Roof Gallery after reading about her in Inara Pey – Living in a modem world blog post. “Camouflage” was quite an impressive exhibit of depth and layered meaning. Traci also has a space at Campbell Coast Artists Village and you can follow her on Flickr.

February 7th at 12 pm

A joined exhibition Moni & Traci at the Midgard gallery.

Here is your teleport to the exhibit.

“Crash”

Traci’s art n this exhibit is titled “Crash”.

Her vivid layered moments for me bring together a bit of thrill of initial fear before it becomes horrific along a sharp reality. This exhibit is a bit out of my comfort zone, the subject matter is a reality and the sensuality of the pieces soften the edges. Interestingly to me his Traci’s layered approach to her Art. First noticed in Camouflage and a little deeper in Crash. These layers onion like in their unfolding seem to reveal bits of who Traci is while sharing insight through her art form.

Traci Crash 006 not for sale

“There is always an argument as to whether beautiful art can be made from horrible things, and ‘Crash’, although not beautiful, is at least an attempt to see things differently with the passing of time”

Traci

Moni

Monique Beebe is another Artist I was exposed to at Nitroglobus Roof Gallery, with her exhibit “Sensuality” 2017 covered by Inara Pey here. This exhibit was sensuous in her use of pose and expression. You can see Moni’s work on her fickr.

“PORTRAITS AND OTHER THINGS”

Moni’s exhibit includes her signature ability to portray emotion in her work through pose and style as well as bunny rabbit shots. OMG love these Bunny shots, Moni shares a bit of surrealism with us with these four shots, white rabbits, condidence, saying bye, and hunting rabbits. Moni uses the same stye of portraying confidence, sensuality and emotion while their faces are covered n Bunny masks.

I could not find a notecard specifically for Moni’s exhibit. Her work is beautiful and if you have seen her earlier work you can see how much her skill has grown.

surrealism not in exhibit but part of series Moni Beebe’s work

What do these two very different Exhibits have in common?

I found that emotion and expression are the smiler bits connecting both exhibits both women are very skilled at showing emotion in their Art.

Do take the time to go see these two amazing strong Women’s artwork!

See you at the Opening or around the grid. Hoot
