RAGLAN SHIRE SIM CLUSTER, May, 2017 -- The Raglan Shire ArtWalk 2017 opens Sunday May 14th, displaying the works of over 150 artists over four sims in an outdoor setting. The show runs from May 15th through June 18th. Artists gridwide converge to exhibit their RL photography and art and SL photography and sculpture in this annual arts festival, hosted by the tiny community of the Raglan Shire sim cluster.
"When I first opened these sims for tinies, I started ArtWalk in 2007, inspired by the ArtWalk of Seattle, Washington," said Zayn Till, Magistrate of Raglan Shire. "We want to give artists a fabulous opportunity to exhibit both RL and SL works. Over the years it has grown into one of the biggest art festivals in SL."
2D art of all kinds is exhibited along the hedgerows in the central area of Raglan Shire sim. SL sculptural works are exhibited among the trees and along the shores of the western half of Heron Forest in Heron Shire sim, in the parks on Morning Shire and Athens Shire sim. TP kiosks to the display locations are throughout the grounds of the festival.
"It is always exciting to see so much talent and art as exhibited by artists of Second Life," said Karmagirl Avro, Artwalk Director, herself one of the exhibiting artists. "Talented artists, both big and small, make May one of my favorite months in Second Life! Nothing better than wandering around the Shires enjoying all the fabulous paintings, sculptures and art!"
Avatars of all shapes and sizes are welcome to visit the show and enjoy wandering these enchanting sims dedicated to tiny avatars.
