UTSA ArtSpace Exhibit: June - August 2017

Our new exhibit highlights the work of two artists again: 2D artist KissMi (aka. Mi) and 3D artist Romy Nayar. Please join us for the opening on Wednesday, June 21, at 8 am SLT at our beautiful UTSA ArtSpace Gallery (SLURL: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/TejanoTech/189/123/77).

The work of Mi captures what could be called states of being, moments of existence, in haunting imagery. Each picture deserve quiet contemplation and reflection on one's own experiences relative to the art piece. Upon entering the gallery, and turning right, visitors will find a gift by the artist.

Romy's work is accessible through the gallery, through a large door placed in the back. It serves as a teleport to the sky area in which the exhibit "Lamento" is housed. The artist gives us the following quote "I don't want anything at all, everything is lost, always...to live without anything, is to lose nothing." We invite visitors to explore the space through a series of doors. Romy also is sharing a gift with visitors; you will find it after you go through the first door (tp to the sky exhibit area).

Here are two images from the exhibit area:

ArtSpace Gallery: October - December Exhibit

The third exhibit in our beautiful ArtSpace Gallery begins on October 10 . Two artists are showcasing their work, and, as in the last exhibit, one creates 2D and the other 3D virtual art.

We are very proud to present to you Gitu Aura (2D Art) and nessuno Myoo (3D Art). The two artists created pieces that not only speak for, and are cohesive within, themselves, but they also intertwined their respective work in the gallery space into a harmonious overall exhibit.

Gitu Aura is passionate about art and presents "Silent Poetry" in this exhibit. Each of the images captures a pensive moment, and, along with it, an emotion that requires no words to understand. The 3D piece created by nessuno Myoo similarly captures poetry through seemingly halting time. The artist invites us to note the beauty of the frozen moment, highlighting the detail of a dynamic process that still unfolds.

We invite you to come and see for yourself.

Please join us for the grand opening at the ArtSpace Gallery, on Monday, October 10, noon SLT. The SLURL to the gallery is http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/TejanoTech/185/128/77

August, and a New Exhibit

It is hard to believe how fast the summer is passing. Didn't we just celebrate its arrival?

Today, August 3, marks the beginning of the second ArtSpace exhibit on the UTSA Virtual Campus. Two artists show their work here until the beginning of October: Betty Tureaud and Laoin Xaris.

Betty's colorful 3D art is immersive and interactive, with a sense of playfulness. The piece inside the gallery is the teleport to the exhibit in the sky. Laoin's real life photography exhibit showcases abstract imagery that captures the beauty in the everyday objects that surround us. The work of the two artists in some ways are counterpoints to each other, which we invite our visitors to explore on their own terms.

Please join us today, at 1 pm SLT, for the grand opening of the exhibit. Musical entertainment will be provided by d-o-o-b, one of the most sought-after DJs in SL.

Destination Guide Listing

The ArtSpace Gallery is now in the Second Life Destination Guide - Editors' Picks (see https://secondlife.com/destinations/editor). There seems to be a steady stream of visitors and we are thrilled to see the continued interest in the exhibit. As a quick side note: for those who wish to stay connected with the gallery and its events through in-world announcements, there is a group joiner for the ArtSpace gallery at the entry. It is the ArtSpace sign that leans on the right side (not the large poster stand).
