2014 Angel Manor Christmas Ball – A Picture Postcard Christmas

It’s that wonderful time of year again, when we gather and the beautiful Grand Ballroom comes to life–a golden fantasy. And our wonderful entertainment are the beauties, Sultry Sonata and Tamara Hayden.

This is a formal (tux and gown) event. We look forward to sharing our Christmas with you.

The ballroom is decorated. Feel free to enjoy it during these days preceding the ball.

Annual Angel Manor Christmas Market is in Full Swing

With a beautiful Christmas tree at its center and Santa watching over all, the Annual Angel Manor Christmas Market is open for your enjoyment from now through January 1st. The market sits adjacent to the main entrance to The Rose Theatre, so it is very easy to find.

Thank you Kaya for the wonderful build!  If you have any questions on the market, you may contact Kylie Sabra or Lisa Valentino.

Molly Bloom’s “Depth Perception” Leaves an Indelible Mark Upon The Rose Galleries

Reminiscent of paintings found on the walls of the venerable Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Bloom’s art literally springs to life– leaping from their canvases. Bloom, never one to be constrained, has found ultimate release in this creative blend of 2D and 3D art and elements.

I chose a nearly black-out gallery to lend to the sense of the surreal that these works evoke. Each piece is larger than life and hangs as close to the floor a possible inviting you to “step in” to the pieces. The sheer scope of this exhibition is housed in what is normally four and one-half galleries within the Rose Art Galleries.

Come and lose yourself in this decadent exhibition in Galleries 1 – 4 of The Rose Theatre & Art Galleries.

Depth Perception Invite


IN THE ARTIST’S OWN WORDS

Depth Perception is an unusual series. A marriage of 2d art with 3d elements, using chiaroscuro lighting. The pictures defy the imagination as elements and figures jump at the viewer. As usual, Molly has an eclectic mix of images, from whimsical and funny, often with social commentary to classical forms.

This event is supported by LUMIPro, the most amazing lighting device on the grid. Without Lumipro, developing these works of art would have taken a great deal more effort.

Many thanks go to Rez Magazine as well, who kindly ran my ad for the event.


ARTIST BIO

Molly Bloom is a Second Life artist that intentionally uses the resources of Second Life exclusively, meaning all her sets are built in Second Life, or using Second Life scenery. Her avatars models pose in real time. Nothing is added in post production by Photoshop, and most pictures are minimally altered. She prides herself on being a purist as a Second Life artist, where part of the challenge of making good art is the joy of building and problem solving.

Molly Bloom is a Real Life artist, and has worked in a number of mediums, but is mostly known for her extensive work with glass. Classical training in many art forms, and a degree in Art History, have given her a firm foundation in the exploration of color and contrast. She has worked in Real Life with clay, wood, metal, multimedia, and painting, among other forms, and her award winning glasswork has been exhibited in a number of San Francisco area galleries.

For any questions, please contact Molly in-world under Mollybloom100, or visit her on her Flickr page.

The artist herself, Ms. Molly Bloom, greets you at the opening of the gallery.

 About the Designer

Before I can appreciate where I am, I have to look back at where I started. I have been the Curator of The Rose Theatre and Art Galleries since February, 2011. I think the stars were well-aligned the day I stepped into Mr. Kaya Angel’s office to interview him for Radar Magazine. I began pursuing art and writing opportunities within a few short weeks of entering Second Life. This world gave me wings to fly and outlets for my creative nature, whether it be art, decoration, building or writing. Just a few months after that first interview I exhibited at the Rose and I count that as…

Layachi Ihnen’s “Ephemeral Visions” Light Up Gallery Eight

Layachi Ihnen returns to The Rose in Gallery 8 after a nearly two-year absence and the walls are screaming his praises in brilliant, living color. Enter the gallery from the main lobby, second floor, and you’ll be warmed by the rich reds and golds that greet you. The show, Ephemeral Visions, is aptly named. whimsical surrealism, meets Realism, meets a touch of Cubism.  His work encompasses both oil painting and digital creations.

Talullah Winterwolf Dominates Gallery Seven, by Kylie Sabra

 

The rich colors in the Gallery 7 build were a must when it serves as the backdrop to equally power art. Tallulah’s work can never go unobserved. No on is going to pass from the exhibition hall on their way to Gallery 8 without stopping short. Her work is that powerful.

When you visit. Take the time to study the subtle layers. Talullah says every painting is a story. What will you read in these rich splashes of color and commanding images?

In the Artist’s Words

Since as far back as I remember, it seems I have had a pencil in my hand  marking whatever paper I had available with the strange goings-on in my head.

I have been painting and drawing all my life– but have never exhibited any of my actual “art” before doing so in Second Life. I was trained in art college, in fashion design, and for a while had my own fashion design business. Currently, I am working in photography.

My inspiration comes from many sources, but the common thread in all my creative works–be it fashion, a photograph, or a painting–tells a story in some form or another. Some of the stories are deeply autobiographical; others could be inspired by a chance snippet of conversation, a captured unintended moment caught in a random photograph, a memory, or a line in a song or book…

A lot of my work explores childhood memories, feelings,or dreams and contains much of the surrealism and symbolism found there, but each one contains an emotion I was feeling strongly at the time. I have tried to capture that feeling in the images., and in doing so have realized that the very effect of layering the image and textures is suggestive of the way our memories are layered on top of each other and each whole is the sum of many parts.

I work in a variety of mediums. This exhibition is image layering , which I use as an inspiration for paintings.

I hope you enjoy exploring each piece, and thank you for your appreciation!

The Rose Art Galleries Say Goodbye to Ranadeep & Kala Gable

It is with a profound sense of loss that I say goodbye to Ranadeep and Kala as curators at The Rose Art Gallery–but certainly not as dear friends. Real life has a way of dishing it out from time to time, and has laid its voracious fingers upon both of them. It is my hope and prayer that someday they may return to their roles here at the Rose. I wish them both the very best, and while they may not be working members of the Angel family, they certainly remain beloved members.

Ranadeep did an amazing job as curator. He is one of the most diligent, talented and focused men I know and he has my profound respect and friendship. Kala came in beside Ranadeep as his assistant and more over these past few weeks–filling in for him as he was unable to come in world. Thank you both.

I will be resuming my full duties as curator. If you have any questions about the gallery, please feel free to contact me.

Sabra Style at BOSL’s Couture Boulevard

Why combine art and fashion? I absorbed myself in art immediately upon entering Second Life–building and opening my first art gallery less than a month in world. I’ve not stopped either. To me, fashion design is art, and I’m loving this new medium–passionate about it actually.

The new stores bring fine couture in an environment reminiscent of a beautiful modern art gallery.  The art featured on the outside of the stores is by Ranadeep; talented and renown fractal artist and Curator of the Rose Thearte Art Galleries. I am so thankful he has taken this role as it has freed me to pursue fashion design, while still creating the gallery designs. It’s the best of both worlds.

Cullum Writer at The Rose Galleries

cullum-writer-rose-theatre-art-galleries

Born in Porto Alegre, Brazil, Cullum Writer is a very talented artist who has evolved from her basic inspiration of taking snapshots in SL to creating some really amazing works of art. Being naturally curious, Cullum ventured into trying new techniques – from fractals to collages, developing her graphic art immensely in the process. In her own words, “she found the happiness to capture and perpetuate images that touch her sensibility with the harmony and grace of their forms and colors.”

The Rose Theatre Art Galleries is proud to host the art of Cullum Writer, now in exhibit at Gallery #6. We are pleased to announce a reception party today, 17th September at 5pm SLT. The artist will be there for meet and greet and to answer any queries and DJ Ariana will be spinning some wonderful tunes for two hours. We invite you all to join us for a wonderful evening of art and music.
