Pictures from the ArtSpace Gallery Opening: Gitu Aura & nessuno Myoo

We thank Laoin Xaris for sharing pictures taken during the opening on Monday, October 10, with us. On that day, 71 visitors came to see the art crated by Gitu Aura and nessuno Myoo.  As is the case with each new exhibit, the already beautiful gallery became a spectacular space again. Come and see for yourself.

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).

What a fantastic opening!

The new ArtSpace gallery opening could not have been better! The art is amazing, the musical entertainment was perfect, and the stream of visitors lasted long beyond the actual opening.

If you have not yet seen the exhibit, please do. The artists, Bryn Oh, Eupalinos Ugajin, Igor Ballyhoo, In Inaka, and Rebeca Bashly, created pieces that each speak for themselves, and that give the visitor a sense of what could be viewed as different genres of SL Art. The musical entertainment, provided by d-o-o-b, aka Eifachfilm Vacirca, kept visitors dancing into the night.

Check out some of the images from the opening on this blog (click on the Image Gallery tab above), and on our Flickr page (sidebar, top).

UTSA's New ArtSpace

We are back! 

Since we lost our full art sim due to financial constraints, we were hoping to find a way to continue our involvement in the SL arts. Now we have a new gallery, our new ArtSpace, on the original virtual campus sim, TejanoTech, and are excited to invite you to the grand opening on June 5, 2016, at noon SLT.

The line-up of participating artists celebrates the creative spirit that makes the SL arts such a unique experience. They are, in alphabetical order: Bryn Oh, Eupalinos Ugajin, Igor Ballyhoo, In Inaka, and Rebeca Bashly. Musical entertainment will be provided by d-o-o-b, aka Eifachfilm Vacirca.
