Evolution? Revolution! Yes!
Make a Change ... GET out of that Box! Every Generation Needs A New Revolution.
Create OUT of the Box! Get out of the Box and Create Change...Revolt!
"One Man With Courage Is A Majority" ~Thomas Jefferson
"All Tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain slient" ~Thoman Jefferson
"Don't talk about what you have done or what you are going to do!" ~Thomas Jefferson
"Do you want to know how you are? Don't ask ACT! Action will delineate and define you" ~Thomas Jefferson

After spending time studying some history of our government in the past .... in its beginning ... I found some things that are showing its head now ... again.

People mostly stay complacent, comfortable, unaware, oblivious .... blind to what is really happening around them. Like living in a box. Some boxes larger than others but all the same ... Box.

Some boxes are created out of lack of interest or in some cases a familiar knowing, not likely to venture out into the unknown. Strangely enough fear plays the biggest part of its perimeter.

An artist deals with: Medium Rules and Their Application, Censorship, Pier Pressure, Jealousy, All can be reasons they create in a box. Its like they are told these are your limits, you will suffer the humiliation of critics on a public level. Some artists bow to this pressure, even in the slightest way and backs down or quits.

The human need to create is in us all. Those of us whom choose to create unleash the magic from within and smile with our hearts inside out. Those, whom choose not to create, have tight eyebrows and criticize, thus is where Critics come from. WE don’t listen to them EVER! And you can quote me on this ~Cien “-) Yeah ... SL art is ART

"If we, citizens, do not support our artists, then we sacrifice our imagination on the altar of crude reality and we end up believing in nothing and having worthless dreams." Yann Martel

In RL we have built ourselves some dangerous Boxes... I have collected some Quotes by Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson, Former US Presidents. YOU MUST study the past to see where you stand now, YOU must Study to see where you’re headed. There are some shocking details to be found in our present situation, foretold by the past. GET OUT OF YOUR BOX ... BEGIN A REVOLUTION ... LOOK TO THE FUTURE AND PREPARE! Yes it is Allowed.. You can get out of your boxes. To stay enclosed in a fabricated safe box is ludicrous. CREATE OUT SIDE OF THAT BOX ... YOUR FUTURE DEPENDS ON FREEDOM! EVEN THE FREEDOM TO GROW YOUR OWN FOOD.... FIND OUT ... TALK WITH OTHERS. DONT LET LIES KEEP YOU TRAPPED IN A BOX.

"Take time to deliberate but when the time for action arrives stop thinking and go in" ~Andrew Jackson

CS Gallery Invitational 2009

"Both Sides of The Story"

Sixteen Phenomenal Artists have been invited to create; "Both Sides of The Story". This is NOT a contest, it is a display of a complete thought, and I promise you that these artists will make us think, change our minds or learn something new about emotions, plans, outcome and more.

It was a bit difficult to choose just 16 as the list of great SL photo artists surpasses that number by far.

Their work will be displayed in two places, in the gallery on easels to be sold if they wish, and the best part is the open display of their work on large pirms (10x10 max), out side in the Island landscape. Here is where they will lean, plant or tilt their work with up to 6 additional prims to convey the message a bit further.

Come walk the emotion & understanding when both sides are known. Let the artist show you something different or something you've felt before. The real story is this collection of artists all in one place sharing their soul.

This will be an exciting Show/Exhibit for our minds ... the days will pass fast for the September 1st 2009 Opening.

Exhibit is now located at: Saint Leo University Virtual Campus


"...there will be wings" ... no matter the struggle, no matter the obstacles, the wings appear ... the Hope is real.

The fragile emergence of a butterfly continues. All around it, life throws hardships, some sharp and piercing, some like a fire.

There, just out of sight, looms the possibility of danger ... yet the chrysalis opens. When the wings appear perfectly marked in its planned beauty, they begin to move,
against all odds this being will BE ... and begin ANEW

Its struggles are not seen as an enemy, but its power to be alive ... survival. The first flight is proof that its hope is real.

•••There is no fear ...
••• It Will Become A Butterfly …
••• ... there will be wings ...

Hope - Trust - Believe - and know a change will come

... three views. The position of thought and expression as portrayed by face or body position.

Three views of expression begin with, "Complex" thus gathering 3 each of; Intricate, Tortuous, Enigmatic and Complicated. Next expression begins with "Regency" thus gathering 3 each of Invincible and Commanding.

All pieces are based on sepia, but with a moment of expressive color defining its view. An interesting collection ... three glances, three views.

Juicy Gallery is proud to present Riona Rimbaud's very first exhibit. "Reflect"

You will find her work eclectic with, as she says; "With out a style of her own". But you will find a similar thread of her in each piece, her simple observation of the moment.

To Riona this is simply fun and if it connects with others then its even nicer.

Come meet this new SL artist as you view her pieces of moments that she chose to reflect her passion, her moments within her art.

Come see these new pieces for this season. The whole sim is seeing some changes as summer begins to heat up. And as some of you may know, I hate the heat of summer so there is a refreshing rain storm to sit under with a cozy conversation spot.

The artistic layout of Misali, Cienega's Juicy, is meant to be photographed. Please enjoy the lush surroundings for your photos. Plus you have a few minutes to rez pose balls for your shots.

The announced guest artist for the month of June will be announced soon, Please check back often.

uqbar. media art culture ~ARENA Exhibit

Opening Today at 1:00 pm SLT
January 31st - Feburary 2nd 2009

ARENA Cienega Soon

Saying emotion and feelings with art is like music to me. There is a flow of sound through out my work. Not sound effects but a beat from within. A little on the dark side and still light enough to find a connection.

Rancor is for me an important piece. It has a message beyond its dark rich color. Its trying to see an end to bitterness and the pain of betrayal. The over reaction of jealousy and the feeling of retaliation.

Here Rancor is a reminder that hate and un-forgiveness causes scars in both directions. The one holding the hate, and the one receiving it both stand bleeding.

Walk through Rancor ... there is a small moment of a break through when you walk into love. If you carry any un-forgiveness I hope you can see a bit better, maybe just release it and feel free for a moment.

Come see my carnival of displays playing to the pieces I've chosen. Some old mixed in with the new.

The complete

Sometimes all the plans you make, make a turn in a direction you weren't expecting, hoping for ... but not expecting.

Juicy is two galleries, the guest artist exhibit gallery, Juicy, and the main Castle Gallery, both now on the sim Misali. What a beautiful place.

Poison water, dark skys and my own home made castle.

A breath of fresh air. No clothing signs in the sky and no slingo shouts flooding the local chat.

Come see the grounds enjoy the mood of juicy. It may storm now and then as rain is always in my forcast. But be forwarned ... dont drink the water no matter how juicy you think it is ... its Poison, yumm my kind of poison. along with the mood music come chill.

You will find teleports throught the grounds to get around. They are somewhat hidden with a fern or two as to not spoil photos should you choose to shoot.

The Castle main Gallery has two floors. The main gallery will feature my newest works and the second floor matains the popular pieces that still please visiting collectors.

At the moment my Juicy Gallery is located on the sim but up at 500m. I am building its new location at ground level this week. Juicy Gallery is now exhibiting sabra Hemingways new works. She will be leaving at the end of the month. I look forward to seeing her work showing up in many galleries and in private collections across the grid.

Juicy Gallery will continue to be a place for New SL Artists to showcase their talents. I will be watching for exciting and intriguing new artists to invite to Juicy each month.

Thank you to all that visited my Castle Valeriya Artist Gallery over the last two years. I promise Juicy will be a place for visits and photos in a dark sort of friendly mood.(still a bit under construction, but open)

Come see... but dont dirnk the pretty water *evil grin*
