Raglan Shire Artwalk Opens


One of Second Life's better-known art shows is now up and running: The Raglan Shire Artwalk. It began yesterday, Sunday May 15, and will continue until Sunday June 19.

Raglan Shire's 17th Artwalk will run from May 15th to June 19th, 2022. It is a five week long event that spans five regions with over 100 artists participating from around the world. Everything from RL photos, paintings and drawings, to SL sculptures will be displayed. Artwalk features live music shows as well as regular weekly events. This year’s Artwalk is dedicated to Teal Freenote. 

As the announcement in the Destination Guide points out, the art is spread out over five of the Raglan community's sims. There are both examples of 2D art, paintings, screenshots, photography, and 3D art sculptures. Most of the pictures are on hedgerows, or "On a hedge!" as the locals say. There are dozens of artists involved, including the Newser's Marcel Mosswood. 

While Raglan has a number of events throughout the year, none gets as much attention, or as many participants from outside the community, as the artwalk. Teal Freenote, whom the artwalk this year is dedicated to, was responsible for it's reaching out to artists outside the community of tinies. She passed away last month. 

Opening day started out with more than artwork. There was a live music event with Keeba and the Tiny Maniacs, with the singer herself sporting overalls splattered with paint. The audience included some of the Artwalk's artists.
