I’ve missed a lot in SL the last several months, but I’m baaaaaaack! I hate missing parties and I missed the Victorian Vernissage in Caledon back in November. The vernissage was for Callipygian Christensen’s newest art exhibit: Sunsets Sepias & Other ‘Scapes. Honour was fortunate enough to be there, in proper Victorian dress. I knew I would probably miss the vernissage so Calli invited me over to watch her as she hung the pictures. These photos were all new to me. This exhibit is a collection of images of the Great Wall and the countryside around it. Calli has been experimenting with sepia tones and the results are lovely.
Although the exhibit started back on December 14th, it will be on display until January 30, 2011 at the Kiku Gallery of Amatsu Shima. When I went to visit, the sim had already gone into winter-mode. It is a beautiful sim. I played about with the windlight settings, trying to practice. It takes me awhile, but ultimately I’ll grasp some of the essentials of lighting.
I enjoyed the gallery also. Often I end up in places where I need to figure out how to get from one altitude to another. Yeah, these things are still difficult for me. This building has simple, clean lines. The architecture is not fighting with the art work. In the center of the building is a restful area with benches, open to the sky. Both the exhibit and the building have a serene atmosphere.
