One of the things about Second Life that has always appealed to me is its ability to inspire the arts and creativity. Whole new art forms have sprung up around the virtual world, and new people have found their way to the arts and their own creativity. Marga J is one of the latter, a new addition to the creative realms of Second Life.
Marga spends a lot of time on very technical work in RL, and was inspired to start exercising the creative side of her brain here in SL. She began to experiment with landscape photography and Windlight settings in world a few months ago, exploring Sims trying different settings and scenes, taking photo after photo… “until my eyes and inner soul are in tune and say. ‘that’s it, this is the one that speaks back to me”. She believes that a good photograph affects the person who sees it, resonates with the person’s feelings at the first sight.
Presented in this exhibit, which Marga calls “Time to Think”, is a collection of some of her first experiments as a photographer, successfully reflecting the sense of a moment in time, or a pause for thought or meditation. I am pleased to share this collection at Tricia Aferdita Gallery.
Please join us on Friday, March 14th from 7 to 9pm SLT, as DJ Geoff Giordano helps us celebrate both the opening of Marga’s exhibit and the reopening of Tricia Aferdita Gallery, which took a brief hiatus while the Sims of Avalon Town were resettled. Marga’s photos will be for sale, and Marga has generously offered a portion of the evening’s proceeds to benefit Relay for Life of Second Life via the Avalon Town Relay Team, Knights of Avalon.
We hope to see you there!
