Raglan Shire ArtWalk 2011 Opens May 8th


RAGLAN SHIRE SIM CLUSTER, May 8, 2011 -- The Raglan Shire ArtWalk 2011 opens, displaying the works of 120 artists over twosims in an outdoor setting. The show runs from May 8th through May 29th.

Artists gridwide have converged 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."

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. A special Director's Show is located in the Raglan Tree Gallery. TP kiosks to the display locations are on 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 Organizer, 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, Betty Rogan, Carly Frequency, StarZ33 McCullough, Tia Macbain, Nessuno Myoo, Teal Freenote, Shoji Kumaki, Special Jewell, Nicci WInsmore, 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.
