“Celebrating its ninth year, Fantasy Faire 2017 is the largest gathering of fantasy designers, enthusiasts, role-players and performers in the virtual world, bringing their own visions together to support the American Cancer Society’s vision of a world without cancer.”

From the Fantasy Faire website

Unfortunately, Cancer is a disease that has touched all of us in some way it’s a very worthy cause and Second life hosts many events that support Relay for life.

 Visit the Totals page to see what SL events have earned for Relay For Life during the year: Sl Totals

This amazing creative colorful fantasy events end tomorrow builds are up through may 4th.. I hope you have had time to go see all the amazing builds and shop to support cancer research.

I didn’t get to spend as much time as I wanted to at Faire this year but that is a common occurrence in second life.  Time even in a virtual world is precious and gone too fast.

Enjoy what time you have as all too soon it may be gone.

The time I had to spend at fantasy faire I thoroughly enjoyed wandering around meeting people seeing the builds and yes shopping. lol I bought toys. I kind of have a thing for toys I buy particles and bubble blowers and recently even a ridable mesh horse. Hey it has to be fun right?

Now hop on it and run off to Faire tomorrow is its last day!

Niamh’s Journey

33915079612_12ee986357_b

Niamh’s Journey of Dreams

“Niamh’s Journey of Dreams” is a collaboration between the amazingly talented Cybelemoon and Ceakay Ballyhoo.

“Are you ready to follow Niamh?

Grand Opening Wed, April 19th, noon SL time

Caledonia Skytower, from Seanchai Library,

will be reading from the journey as we go.”

Cybele’s “Tales of the Tuatha” was chosen to be the inspiration for a new sim-wide installation on Mistwood Isle.

Ck’s previous work “The little girl and the forest beyond” was such a creative journey. Once I heard of her involvement in bringing one of Cybelemoon’s stories to “life: in Second Life I was so excited to see it!

“CK has tried to do justice to the original tales of Cybele’s blog and the accompanying pictures which make for the typical warm, fairytale feel that is Cybele’s style.

She’s had help from Elwyn Lorefield who has the amazing powers to script and create the effects much needed for the mysterious Firefly Forest!

Follow the story through the storyboards, click on them for the NCs with the text, and follow in Niamh’s path as she tries to retrieve all her lost dreams!”

Cybele Moon (Hana Hoobinoo) or the Dune Mouse, maintains a wanderer’s life in both worlds.

Cybele loves the telling of tales. She is drawn to both history and myth.

In real life, she photographs both dreamy landscapes and old stones, sometimes using an infrared camera. Her photos have been sold in art shops and displayed in a museum gallery – as well as a few galleries in the virtual world.

“I have a mix of SL and RL in my photos. For me, there is only a fine line between a perception of reality and a vision, and so, as with all things my work is constantly changing and evolving.”

“Ceakay Ballyhoo (CK) has been around SL for quite some time.

 Recently, she has shifted her focus from socializing to art.

First as a photographer, later combining photographs with atmospheric builds.

In 2016, she felt she was ready for a full installation and got a grant for a  LEA sim. For six months’ people were able to roam around in her Watercolor Wander, completely built out of watercolor paintings and watercolor textures.

Finally, having developed her own style and a fairly unique trademark, ideas were flying around again soon. Having your own world to wander around in is very inspirational and highly addictive!

It led to the installation The Forest Beyond which was on display from January till March 2017 and now to this joint effort with CybeleMoon.”

CK has an inworld gallery and an artwalk with collected art of fellow SL artists. Both can be reached by taking a tp from the Landing Point at Niamh’s Journey (UP).

ELO’s “A Ray of Light”

Elorac Paule

Iam so thrilled to see  Lil’ Frenchie elo‘s work at Commune Utopia!

Elo’s work ranges from seductive, mysterious, sensual, sexy, passionate, sad, restrained, bound, hidden, loving, raw and real. Elo evokes feeling with her work it is palatable. You can feel the emotions she portrays in each piece. Her passion comes roaring through as clearly as the random still calm shots do.

Elo always manages to stir feelings and emotions in me with her work.

Come on by and see how her incredibly beautiful talent affects you.

Commune Utopia hosts an opening party Saturday January 21st @ 1pm slt.

Here is your teleport.

“The delicacy of the female beauty captured in “A Ray of Light” belies the strong contrasts that create a sense of something almost too perfect to belong to the real world– thus belonging imminently to SL. “ taken from Yoru’s announcement at CU.

Artificial Sasquatch Diagnosis

Commune Utopia is featuring the artistry of Rocksuriya.

‘Artificial Sasquatch Diagnosis’

“A study in the virtual male form”

Rock tastefully shows off his physique in a erotic sensual way. The Real life look he acquires through his use of lighting and shadow. The way the light plays on the pixels brings to life the still forms, This exhibit is sure to tantalize your senses as it so softly eases the eye into appreciation of the male form.

I really love his play of light and flesh each piece draws your eye in making you imagine what you don’t see. Rock’s work brings a smile to your face and tantalization to your imagination.

Exhibiting at Holly Kai Art Park

 Art in the park series for December 2016 @ Holly Kai.

I am excited to be exhibiting my photos in Holly Kai’s Art in the park series for the month of December.

It was hard to choose photos to exhibit. I thought most of my photos were self indulgent Topless Tuesday shots. There are a lot of those but I was happily surprised.

I do have sim’s  visited and many other photos too.

Two photographers I have admired a long tome and followed on flickr will be there

Caitlin Tobias and Blues Rocker.

Caitlin explained a bit more about her exhibit on her blog

Cait’s World.

I love that her exhibit lets you play with the pose!

Apparently Caitlin Tobias and I were quick at setting up as of this morning no one else had their exhibits up so they will be a surprise.

Kayly Iali and Kody Meyers fill out the 2d exhibitors.

I am unfamiliar with their work and looking forward to seeing it.

The 3d artist for December is Franx Lafavere

In April of 2016 Frankx Lafavere did a Lea Installation called Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor a dark build expressing anxiety, panic disorder. The resulting piece was incredible.

Inara Pey Blogged it here

The Linden Endowment for The Arts blogged it here

I have no idea what Franx Lafavere will share with us at Holly Kai.

He is an incredible Artists and I am sure it will be amazing!

I hope you can join us for the opening Dec 3rd at 12 noon.

This is a formal event so please dress up and be prepared to dance.

Winston Ackland will be performing Live for us !

Winston’s warm heartfelt vibe and wonderful talent is a pleasure in any scene however it is really special to me that he is playing an opening I am part of!
