The Palais Orleans Gallery 2 has an amazing new exhibit . It is called Unified Heart 2013. The owner and curator Morgana Nagorski of the galleries told me, “In Jan 2012 we had a phenomenally successful exhibition - Unified Heart - where 20 artists interpreted the words of a Leonard Cohen song of their choice. Now we are doing it again! Thirteen of the artists from last time and eight additional ones are participating in Unified Heart 2013. A homage to the beauty and genius of this iconic Singer songwriter who has been a part of many lives for many years.”
The words of the song, or poem, are next to each piece on the wall. You can view the picture , read the song words, then view the piece again and, perhaps , understand the artist’s interpretation. All the scenes are lovely and so interesting in their different styles Each artist was free to chose their own songs as they were inspired and it was interesting that only 2 artists chose the same words.
All of the artists photos are on the inside walls so you can see who participated in the exhibit: Aelin Quan, Acacia Merlin, Amona Savira, Burk Bode, Callipygian Christensen, Cat Boccaccio, Corinne Helendale, Dantelicia Ethaniel, Dixmix Source, Harbor Galaxy, Jessica Belmer, Kato Salyut, Kira Westland, Lily Laufer, Maloe Vansant, Meilo Minotaur, Morgana Nagorski, Petra Messioptra, Ronda Saunders, Sare Ethaniel, Skip Staheli.
The gallery will host the exhibit from January 26 through April 21 so you will have a while to visit and view. You can also visit the other two galleries and those exhibits. . There will be opening parties to which you are invited on Saturday, January 26 from 6:00-8:00pm SL time or Sunday January 27 from 10:00am to noon . http://maps.secondlife.com/
