Opening on Saturday, September 17th at 12:00 noon SLT is the DiXmiX Gallery, a new venue for 2D and 3D art and for music in Second Life.Designed by Megan Prumier (famous for Crimarizon and Deadpool) and curated by Dixmix Source, the gallery offers a large foyer area and three halls for art displays – the Black and the White Gallery Halls, which are apparently to be dedicated to monochrome art, with the Grey Gallery linking them. Art in these halls may be split over two levels, the ground floor and a mezzanine area, while a music venue, The Atom, completes the major facilities.
For the inaugural exhibitions, the gallery presents a series of striking images by Ariel Brearly (directly above) on display in the spacious entrance foyer, together with a selection from Megan’s personal collection of 3D art by Mistero Hifeng.The Black Gallery and the White Gallery offer exhibitions of avatar studies by Grazia Horowitz and Dixmix Source respectively. The images by Grazia are drawn from Dixmix’s personal collection, marking the first time her art has been formally exhibited in Second Life. Dixmix notes he hopes to have her exhibiting in person at the gallery at a future date. I confess to finding Grazia’s work hauntingly beautiful, with Aditi (seen as the banner image to this piece) in particular captivating me….
