The Art at the Park series resumes at Holly Kai Park on Saturday, September 24th, with a new exhibition by four top artists and photographers … and me.
Running through until Sunday, October 23rd, Art at the Park features the work of:
- Anibrm Jung – award-winning photographer
- John Brianna – physical world and virtual world photographer and artist
- Giovanna Cerise – renowned physical world and virtual world artist
- Wildstar Beaumont – popular and well-regarded Second Life photographer.
I’ll be bringing-up the rear to make up the numbers 🙂 .
You can find out more about the artists on the Holly Kai blog.
To mark the new exhibition, we’re having a formal opening at 2:00pm SLT, featuring the music of our good friends and supporters of the Park, Erin68 Frog and Satin. They’ll be performing for our dancing pleasure at the new art events area, which is also located on the top of the art hill.
As is usual for our openings, we as that guests are formally dressed. Also, in keeping with our policy, the venue won’t be taking tips – but we hope that if you do come along – and we home you will – that you’ll consider donating to our adopted charity Stand Up To Cancer, which, this month is the focus of SL Concerts to Benefit Stand Up to Cancer.
Stories at the Park – Sunday, October 19th, 15:00 SLT
Coinciding with the exhibition, we will once again be hosting Stories at the Park in association with Seanchai Library.
Each month, story writers and poets from Seanchai Library and beyond are invited to visit Holly Kai Park and view the 2D and 3D art on display, and then to write a 100 word story (a “drabble”) on the art piece or pieces that inspires them – or, if they prefer, to write a poem of up to 100 words.
At Stories at the Park, the submitted stories and poems are read in a live voice session in the Storyteller’s Garden. Authors can either read their own works, or if they prefer, have one of the Seanchai Library staff read them. Submitted stories are also published on the Holly Kai Park blog.
If you would like to submit pieces for Stories at the Park, and either read them yourself, or have them read on your behalf, then visit the Art at the Park exhibition at Holly Kai Park, and write about the picture(s) or 3D art which inspire you. Stories must be exactly 100 words long, and poems, in any form – blank verse, iambic pentameter, haiku, sonnet, etc.), can be up to 100 words in length. Finished works should be submitted via note card to either Caledonia Skytower or myself no later than Wednesday, October 12th, 2016.
So – welcome to a new season at Holly Kai Park, and we look forward to you visiting!
