I’m pleased to announce that Ranadeep will be taking on the role of The Rose Galleries Curator. I’ve been searching for a competent addition to the Rose Gallery team since I started my new business, Sabra Style, in February. Managing the galleries properly is no small task and I needed someone who not only possessed a passion for art in Second Life and was himself an artist, but someone with exceptional technical and organization skills. Gee. I don’t ask for much do I?
I met Ranadeep a few months back and was immediately impressed with his passion, his thoughtfulness and his work ethic as seen in his own gallery, Aakriti Arts. I made the offer and he graciously accepted and is The Rose Gallery Curator effective May 15, 2014.
So where do I fit in? The galleries are Angel-family owned and operated, so I am still very much a part of the gallery. I will take on the title Rose Gallery Designer and will continue to build the galleries and exhibitions. Brittney Lynne serves as Personal Assistant to the team and is responsible for Facebook and in-world marketing. As well, she supports the marketing efforts of Sabra Style.
To be clear, Ranadeep is in all ways the Curator. He will find and nurture talent, both new and established; maintain calendars; plan, host and schedule events. I have given him free rein. He has my utmost trust and I have his back. I can’t wait to see what he has up his sleeves. It’s almost as if you can see the hamster running on that wheel in his head.
Welcome to The Rose, Ranadeep.
A Word from Our New Curator
“It is an absolute honor to be offered to curate for the prestigious Rose Theatre Art Galleries – one of the most popular and widely acknowledged art galleries of Second Life. As the Curator, one of my priorities will be to keep the exhibitions in the galleries fresh and new as well as interesting, unique and exclusive as much as possible. I would like to see The Rose Galleries not only as a hub for grand exhibitions, but also a community where new talents are motivated and promoted. Hence I plan to exhibit new and talented artists along with well-established and popular ones.
“In addition to the Rose Galleries and the artists, I feel responsible toward the visitors and patrons as well. It is their love and acknowledgement that has always contributed to our success. I would aim to ensure that the visitors’ response to the exhibitions is enjoyable and inspiring. The Rose Theatre Art Galleries has won the Avi Choice Award twice in a row – I have big shoes to fill indeed – and I definitely intend to continue the legacy.”
