The Soleil: Multi-artist Exhibition



The Soleil, a multi-artist exhibition will open on July 11th at 10 am PDT/SLT at the Angelgate Gallery. This exciting exhibition will be presenting thirty six Second Life artists of all possible styles and techniques … from copies of RL paintings to interactive immersive installations. Almost every art work you will see is new and not seen before. Most were created specifically for the show. The artists were asked to make art reflecting all possible interpretations of the theme, "the Soleil". You will see many interesting and unique artworks that this theme has inspired. The level of creativity of the artists is amazing. There are many names you will already know … they have participated in many events around the grid and are regular exhibitors at Angelgate shows. You will also have a chance to discover some new artists making their debut in the SL art scene and some very rare exhibiting artists.

When you arrive using the landmark above you will see the first floor filled with art work. On this floor and above many of the art sculptures are interactive - they react to avatar presence by making sounds or rezzing something as part of the presentation. Consider walking closer - if you just cam around you will give you only part of the effect our artists have created.


After you examine the first floor, please walk up the staircase. Each step has an art work made by the artist whose name you see on the step. Clicking on a step will give you information, bio, and artists' statements.


Once you reach the top of the stairs you will enter our Events area. This is where the Opening Event will be held on July 11th. This is a very unusual event area - the whole room is designed specifically for this show by one of the most acclaimed SL artists, Glyph Graves. He is well known for making beautiful, vibrant, unusual installations. For the Soleil he created not just a room - it is a different world. Again, I strongly suggest walking in as opposed to camming up - you will see how being inside affects your mood and feelings.


To emphasize this effect, during the opening, July 11th, we will enjoy a very special performance by AldoManutio Abruzzo, an amazing professional musician (Dennis Moser in RL) known for his music improvisations. He visited the events area and agreed that this wonderful art installation will inspire him to play something special - his music will be the 37th art piece of the show, only existing for one hour. He is generously donating his performance to AngelGate Arts to support the future of creating art events like the Soleil.


The opening celebration will be continued by another live music performance. Edward Kyomoon sings rock music and love songs ranging from the 60's to the present, covering bands and artists such as the Doors, Pink Floyd, Blue October, Snow Patrol and Nine Inch Nails. He also shares his own original music. He will perform from 11AM till Noon. His concert is another generous donation to support Angelgate non-profit organization art programs.


Don't hesitate to contact me should you require any further information.

Curator.

An update from White Lebed:

Luce Laval made a beautiful interactive art piece called "AngelGate dancing Sun". Due to its size we placed it on the roof - so any bird flying by would know about the ongoing show :)
