Dreams Community Fair, from now until April 28th

Although this isn't an art venue per se, I think many of you might enjoy the events and organizations (resident-run and non-profits) present at the Dreams Island fair.

This grand event happens ever year and it's put together by the wonderful The Sojourner, well-known mentor and founder of the stroke-support group Shockproof. Right now, more than 30 organizations from real-life and SL-born are participating in the fun of the fair. Come take a look around, get some cool freebies, attend meetings, and learn about the various active communities in SL!

While there, I ran into Tayzia, who is also becoming an integral member of Dreams and has helped pull together some of the art groups present here. Great seeing you again, Tay, and great job, as usual :)

Art at the aho-NMC campus

Three very different visual artists have been assembled this month at the aho museum the NMC Campus. Come and experience for yourself their individualist work. The event will be held on Saturday 21st April 4pm SL Time - make a note on your calendar now please !

Cubist Scarborough - Yorkshire - UK. He self proclaims himself to be an Inventor, Educator, Programmer, Designer, & Artist. His work here features 3D portraits that follow you when you move around the art space. Which is slightly UN nerving but done with such style it captivates.

Douglas Story - Wisconsin USA comments “My technique involves the scientific approach of jamming the lens into the flower and tripping the shutter. Oh, alright….a little more than that. I use a good tripod, a camera with a LCD screen that swivels (good for unusual camera positions,) and sometimes diffusers or reflectors – but the light is all natural. The images you see have not been altered with Photoshop; that’s the picture as it came right out of the camera “.

Nebulosus Severine - USA. Neb’s twin divided art space with a static TV presence; evocative with elements of the daily mundane.

In order to view this exhibit, you will need to search for nmc in groups and join the nmc guests group. Aho Museum-NMC Campus (65, 128, 26)

Vudu Sauvage @ Lauks Nest

Enjoy sculpture in an open-air setting - but hurry as I am not sure how long Vudu will keep these sculptures here. The variety and whimsicality make this a memorable show, which is perfectly placed in Laukosargus's former home.
