Gallery Freenote Relocating to InWorldz

Hello Dear Friends! In two weeks, I am closing my Second LifeGallery.  I am creating all my works over in InWorldz now and have huge space to both create and to show my work, and its very expensive in SL. It seems ridiculous to keep maintaining such an expensive space when all my creative energy is being funneled on another grid for much less expense and much more creative freedom.  So if you want one last visit to Gallery Freenote in SL, now is the time.

Please visit Gallery Freenote in InWorldz and my sculpture garden SIM (yes a whole sim) Dreamsinger Sculpture Isle in the InWorldz grid. Its an exciting place for artists, and an exciting time there as the grid will come out of beta around the first of the year.

I will continue to exhibit in other festivals and galleries in SL, but my main location will now be InWorldz. I have an exhibiton coming in March 2013 at Mathilde Vhargon's Two Shores Gallery in SL.

Thank you all for your support, kind words, and patronage. Much love to you all.

Sculpture 49: "Remembrance"

The holiday I'm Dreaming Art Fest is on in InWorldz. We were asked to do something on a holiday theme. When all one's immediate family has passed away, there is a sadness at the holidays about that. With this work, the white box can stand alone as a piece, and that part will be available for sale.

Grand Opening - Dreamsinger Sculpture Isle

My summer project is coming to fuition :) Announcing:
Dreamsinger Sculpture Isle is a new, sim-sized natural setting featuring the virtual sculptures of Teal Freenote. Teal has been creating art in virtual worlds for five years. She began with Gallery Freenote in Second Life® in 2008 and extended and added to that with Gallery Freenote in InWorldz™ in 2010. She has created all of her sculptures in InWorldz™ since that time.

The Grand Opening will take place on October 21, 2012, from noon to 2 pm PDT/virtual time at Gallery Freenote in InWorldz™ with live music by Ichie Kamachi and Ganjo Mokeev. This event is part of the Intergrid Metaverse Arts Biennial art festival.

Teal Freenote's virtual sculpture derives primarily from dream and symbolic imagery around emotional and spiritual feelings, and lately is branching out to include more abstract explorations of philosphical and aesthetic principles. The central installation is "Gift of the Goddess", is a large meditation on creativity and the feminine. Dreamsinger Isle provides a setting to wander, explore, and contemplate the art in a beautiful, natural environment. It will remain  open on an ongoing basis to visitors, with new sculptures added in the future.

And I have 5 more sculptures on the third floor cafe deck..

Sculpture 46: "Mono no aware"

The meaning of the Japanese phrase "mono no aware" basically refers to a “pathos” (aware) of “things” (mono), deriving from their transience. The acceptance and celebration of impermanence goes beyond all morbidity, and enables full enjoyment of life.

This work has been created for an exhibition at the renovated Vista Hermosa Art Center (VHAC) in SL called "Sketches of Spain". It will be on display there beginning June 2012 for several months.

It was also featured near the main stage on the InWorldz Grid at the InWorldz Dance On- Dance Off Event mid-June to early July 2012. Now moved to the second level of Gallery Freenote InWorldz.

Psst - it moves - its two 2D images and a kinetic sculpture.

Sculpture 43: "Kintsugi" by Teal Freenote

"Kintsugi" (Japanese for golden joinery) is the Japanese art of fixing broken pottery with a lacquer resin sprinkled with powdered gold.

"When the Japanese mend broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold. They believe that when something's suffered damage and has a history, it becomes more beautiful."
~Barbara Bloom
