Sunday, July 14th marked the opening of the Kultivate Magazine 4th anniversary art show in Second Life.
Since its inception, the brand has grown to encompass the website, the side-by-side Kultivate AIR and the Windlight galleries, The Edge gallery, specialising in black and white images, and the arts community as a whole through the provisioning of personal art spaces on the Kultiate home region of Water Haven. In addition, Kultivate has provided fund-raising support for Team Diabetes of SL, Rock Your Rack (supporting the National Breast Cancer Foundation – NBCF), and Feed a Smile.
For their fourth anniversary, Kultivate presents a 2D and 3D art exhibition in a steampunk-themed setting. Some 27 artists are participating in the event, which also features a week of entertainment as well.
Obviously, with so many artists participating, the range of art on display is broad, with avatar studies, landscapes, colour images, monochrome, physical world paintings, mixed media, and more. All of the art is displayed in the open air, with the region’s default windlight providing a strong neutral background light to fully appreciate the pieces on display.
I admit to inevitably being drawn to some of my favourite artists – Cybele Moon with her fabulous fable-like images; VictorSavior, who again offers a wonderful mix of art: hand-drawn avatar studies, paintings of historical figures, landscape paintings and the most engaging series of oriental-style wall hanging featuring ink-drawn images and words; Jamee Sandalwood’s wonderful landscape and region studies; and so on. However, all of the art makes this a more than engaging visit.
