Castle Valeriya Artist Gallery ... redone!
The Gallery has been redone. After the SL5B exhibit I was determined to recreate my Darkness theme at the gallery. I had to wait till the land behind my gallery went up for sale. Wow, just when I needed it, it did just that. All eight 512's became available all at the same time. One was priced very affordable and the other 7 were a bit over the top for my budget. I decided to make an offer for all 7 and then a few days later the owner counter offered me a nice reduction and I purchased all 8 for my new 8192 plot.
The Castle was moved back and to one side so that Cagney's club next door could enjoy the setting and walk way to the gallery grounds. I never put up the red tape no entry stuff, I think thats kind of silly. I removed all the stairs and closed the openings to each floor, allowing the use of the floor shield teleports. the main lobby has the open ceiling and now my balcony office ... well we can call it that cant we :p lol. For reference to my growing understanding of the progression in my art/photoshop work on SL screenshot/photos, I placed three portraits in the office. Its good to see the differences.
Yayyy ... We now have the open grounds for the larger dark art displayed out as in the Darkness exhibit. The new added feature is the DJ riser. This is where we will hold our Masquerades and future events. Our last masquerade gave out over 30,000 in prize L$.
The Grand Opening will be held the second week of August 2008, exact date, time and details to be announced in the Cienega Soon Artistry group. Please join for the VIP extras as well, or IM me and I will invite you to join.
I am looking forward to the next guest exhibitor. A place out on the grounds as well as one of the floors in the gallery will be open to a new unnoticed SL photo artist. to be announced at the Grand Re-Opening of the Gallery.
