The multi-artist exhibit Imagine opens today, Sunday, April 24, 2016, at 12 PM SLT at the DaphneArts Gallery with music by DJ ferdy. The 17 photographers participating are Angelika Corral, Anouk A., Bay Addens, Burk Bode, Good Cross, Hills, Io Bechir, Isa Messioptra, Jammie Hill, Joslyn Benson, Maloe Vansant, miu miu, miu, MM (Mysterr), Paola Mills, Senna Coronet, tutsy Navarathna and Zib Scaggs. This exhibit is really wonderful and I loved most of the photographs by this group of extremely talented artists. I liked the wide open space of the gallery also, it greatly contributes to the overall feel of this show. Curators Angelika Corall and Sheldon BR state about the exhibit that Imagine is a show that uses art, focused on promoting a peaceful communication, bringing together some great SL photographers from around the world. The metaverse Second Life is a community that, in its own unique way, resembles the “dream” which was eloquently presented by the English songwriter and performer John Lennon in his song “Imagine”, (1971). By this, Lennon, shared his dream of a world without border lines, where people could live in a brotherhood of man, with noting to live or to die for. The participating artists were invited to create an image using the song “Imagine” as inspiration. They shared their vision as dreamers, via their artistic images. The exhibit will be open until the end of May, make sure not to miss it!
