BEHIND THE AVATAR by Paola Mills


We are very pleased to announce the opening of our new art exhibition. Please join us on Thursday, September 13, at 1 pm SLT for the opening of Paola Mill's BEHIND THE AVATAR installation at our ArtSpace Gallery (click here for SLURL to ArtSpace; or copy/paste this link into your browser: https://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/TejanoTech/189/123/77).

Paola's photography captures images that take us beyond the avatar to the human soul. The following is in the artist's own words:

Second Life has allowed me to develop without the need for powerful means my emotionalism, take the moment of one feeling into simple shots that stop a moment of my time. … I hope that my photographs can be a stimulus of irony, emotions and feelings, that these photographs go beyond a simple observation of the photograph itself.

ADCREDO by Marina Münter

Please join us on Saturday, April 14, at 1 pm SLT for the opening of Marina Münter's ADCREDO installation at our ArtSpace Gallery (SLURL: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/TejanoTech/189/123/77).

DJ Chichi will provide entertainment at the opening, and Marina's work invites you to step into the scene she created. The following is in the artist's own words:

Adcredo is the latin word for "trust" and also my third solo exhibition in Second Life.

For this installation I took a snapshot of 44 blindfolded and shirtless avatars (myself included) and displayed them on the dinner table, highly inspired by the Tropicalia, a cultural movement that occurred in Brazil in the 60's.

In my work I like to explore the possibilities of developing a context to display digital images and hope you will enjoy the time spent here.

UTSA ArtSpace Exhibit: August - October 2017

We are excited to announce our new exhibit, highlighting the work of  3D artist Haveit Neox. Please join us for the opening on Friday, August 25, 1 pm SLT at our beautiful UTSA ArtSpace Gallery (SLURL: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/TejanoTech/189/123/77).

In this exhibit, titled The Elastic Garage, Haveit shares with us a very personal memory. 
"Sometimes magic is elusive. In the dark, in a large crowded storage space with one hanging light bulb: the realm of shadows and highlights, everything is sculpted of wonder. ... This was the garage of my childhood, where my visits were frequent in search of all manner of treasures to furnish the little cities I was building in the garden. Whatever I built from the material felt real, and authentic...."
(excerpt from the note card available at the exhibit).
Please come and join us for the grand opening (see details above), or visit the gallery at any other time of your liking. You may find the exhibit triggers a memory of one of your own childhood places.

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:
