Aurora and I hope you will enjoy it.  Remember you can find this gown in “The Sabra Thirteen” vendor at my gallery at The Rose until it has moved out.  For Sabra Style members, the gown is 50% off until it is removed from The Sabra Thirteen vendor and moves to Marketplace.

A Rose Retrospective 2014

As the Avi Choice Awards voting period draws to a close (February 23rd), I want to take this opportunity to look back at just a few of the things that have taken place at Angel Manor.

As of January 1, 2014, Angel Manor consisted of seven sims: The Theatre, the family home, four rental properties and one private estate. by the close of 2014, Angel Manor grew to nine sims with the addition of the Garden and Retreat sims. It’s been a busy time of growth and we are very happy with our current holdings.

We do not anticipate the addition of additional properties in 2015 (but never say never). Rather, we plan to focus on increased activities across the family’s vast holdings. With that goal in mind, we seek to add two staff members. The first is an Events Coordinator who will manage both the procurement of musical artists and create and manage events for both the Angel Manor community and for the public. The second position is that of the Curator to replace Kylie Sabra Angel. Kylie will take on the role of Public Relations. While continuing to pursue her design career, she has now joined the ranks of SL’s musical talents as a blues/jazz singer.


 INTRODUCING LISA VALENTINO


The past year brought a new addition to our family; Lisa Valentino, who has taken on the role of Angel Manor Charities support coordinator. As Charity Support Coordinator, Lisa manages our charity events to support real-world, non-profit charity organizations and Second Life charity organizations that are working directly and with the public participation. Charity work has been an integral part of her real life and has naturally factored into her Second Life here at Angel Manor as well. As a result, Lisa’s focus is global, with a mission to engage with charities and raise funds to help these organizations build a better world. In a few words, her beliefs are passionately quoted as, “Charity is based on relating to all needs and seeks to promote international harmony with a cohesive spirit of giving, so all may have equal opportunities in life.”

In addition to her work in charity, Lisa also manages the numerous and ongoing venue requests that Angel Manor and The Rose Theatre receive for private parties (such as weddings, receptions, rez day parties, anniversary celebrations,) and use of the space for a wide range of other events.

Watch for more details on Lisa’s role as an Angel Family member on the weeks and months to come.


 

As mentioned in a previous post, Angel Manor is up for several Avi Choice awards for 2014.

Aurora Mycano – The Black & White of the Matter

Aurora in black in white is still a colorful adventure. Her fractals are elegant in their detail and composition and lend themselves well to this “Fifty Shades of Gray” rendering. The styles range from ethereal to stark and each is beautiful in its own way. I love fractals. They remind me of kaleidoscopes, which have fascinated me since I was a young child. These ever-changing patterns are present in Aurora’s work and I never get tired of visiting this exhibition.

Don’t mis the reception honoring this talented artist.

Aurora Mycano’s Biography

Aurora Mycano, designer and creator of “The Dragonfly – Artwork” focuses her art mainly on digital, fractal, modern and abstract art.

She got introduced to the universe of digital fractal art in autumn/winter 2012. Since then she is fascinated by this unique technique and enjoys creating these universal patterns in different variations and styles.

For her fractal art, she uses the program JWildFire, with which she won the first RL JWildFire fractal art contest in spring 2013. Other used fractal softwares are: Apophysis and UltraFractal. Her fractals are mainly raw fractals without any post-work/manipulations in photoshop or other editor programs.

In her newest exhibition for The Rose Gallery, she shows fractal art combined with digital art effects. A very modern and abstract collection of solely black & white images.

“I am very passionate about my art and expressing myself with it. You will find a little part of my soul and heart in each of my pieces, as they all reflect a certain moment in my life, which inspired me to create it.”

Beside creating wall art, with her fractals or SL photography she enjoys producing sculptures and interior decoration.

Deesselle Destiny Brings Her Signature Nudes to Play at The Rose

It’s been a couple of years since The Rose has hosted a show of nudes– the memorable exhibition by Anna Anton of male nudes.  Well ladies, it’s our turn and Deesselle does not disappoint. Beautiful women beautifully portrayed against a sensual and beautiful backdrop.

The exhibition is divided into four viewing areas from small, intimate to grandiose. Each area is set as a backdrop for various types of work. The first room is a classic boudoir, lovingly prepared for a clandestine assignation. This room features four of Deesselle’s close-up works.

Enjoy these works in person at The Rose Art Gallery Grand Exhibition Hall in Second Life.

Boudoir

The second room takes us to the bath and the sensuality of water.

The Bath

The third room is suggestive of bondage and voyeurism. Suggestive. There is nothing blatant about Deesselle’s work. She tickles the imagination. It is reminiscent of a gentlemen’s lounge in a fine members-only establishment, complete with wine and cigars. The single chair waits for whom?

The Submissive

The exhibition is on two floors. The top floor houses the remainder of Deesselle’s exhibition and are a varied mixture of nudes. This great expanse invites you to walk about and take in each picture as a single art piece, competing with nothing. Soft draperies waft in the breeze and bring some separation and warmth to this massive space. This will be where Deesselle’s reception will be held.  Watch for information.

Deesselle Destiny ,

C’est avant tout une aventure incroyable. Débarquée sur secondlife il y a 7 ans et déjà passionnée de photos en réel, j’ai découvert assez vite que ce support qu’est ce monde virtuel pouvait m’apporter la possibilité de faire découvrir mon univers.

L’apprentissage de photoshop n’a pas été sans soucis au départ mais grace à l’aide d’un ami et en suivant plusieurs tuto et articles je suis vite devenue addict à ce logiciel. Commencé alors mon expérience photographique avec ma première photo en 2008 pour mon plaisir.

De bouche à oreille, les premiers clients m’ont contactés, des particuliers mais également certains créateurs ..

Créer alors mon propre blog était devenu une évidence. J’aime faire les retouches sur les avatars , créer une histoire, me decharger de certaines emotions suivant les moments de ma vie RL.
Les photos sont devenues une sorte de défouloir pour moi, un moment qui m’appartient je ne pense a rien juste à la musique que j’écoute et qui me guide dans ma creation. J’espère pouvoir continuer longtemps à me faire plaisir et surtout faire plaisir grace à mes photos et d’autres projets en cours comme développer ma collection de shapes et poses.

Loose translation via Google (let me reiterate “loose”)


It is above all an incredible adventure. I landed in
Second Life seven years ago. I was already 
passionate about real life photography. I found out 
pretty quickly that this virtual world could help me 
to discover myself.

Learning Photoshop has not been without problems at 
the start, but thanks to the help of a friend and 
following several tutorial articles and I quickly 
became addicted to this software. Then began my 
photographic experience with my first photo in 
2008.

At first customers contacted me individually, then 
designers began to show interest in my work. After 
that, word-of-mouth marketing grew my business.

I created e my own blog. I like to do touch up 
avatars, create a story. I draw on   emotions from 
my real life to influence my work. The pictures 
became an outlet for me. I disappear into my own 
world and listen to music. The music becomes 
my guide, my muse. 

I hope to go on. It makes me happy, especially 
pleasing thanks to my photos and other ongoing 
projects like developing my collection of shapes 
and poses.

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.

Kylie Addison Sabra, Curator


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 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.
