The Red Gallery; supporting diabetes research in Second Life

Saturday, September 24th saw the opening of The Red Gallery, operated by Team Diabetes of Second Life, the official Second Life team for the American Diabetes Association (ADA).

The Red Gallery has been established to support Team Diabetes of SL in their work raising funds for ADA. Each exhibition will feature a number of artists displaying their art, with proceeds of sales split between the artist and Team Diabetes of SL. Each exhibition will likely be for a period of two months.

For the inaugural exhibition, the featured artists are Aradia Aridian, John Brianna, Sheba Blitz, Eucalyptus Carroll, Ilyra Chardin, Layachi Inchen, Methisa Kira, Ramsa Luv, Doasilike Resident, Kodymeyers Resident, Timaaj Resident and Tisephone Resident. Between them they present a rich mix of art, ranger from modern “traditional” in-world landscapes and avatar studies, through to more abstract pieces and art generated in the physical world and imported in to Second Life; all of which makes for an engaging and eye-catching exhibition.

For those who prefer to donate directly, Team Diabetes of Second Life donation kiosks are available on the lower level of the gallery.

About the American Diabetes Association

 Established in 1940, the American Diabetes Association is working to both prevent and cure diabetes in all it forms, and to help improve the lives of all those affected by diabetes. It does this by providing objective and credible information and resources about diabetes to communities, and funding research into ways and means of both managing and curing the illness. In addition, the Association gives voice to those denied their rights as a consequence of being affected by diabetes.
