Palais Orleans Artist Park

"I sought to create something reminiscent of Jackson Square in New Orleans. A beautiful park with the perimeter adorned with works of art. A casual atmosphere where people could stroll and enjoy the sights and sounds" madison Arnahan

Presently at the Square we have the duo of Zolar Merlin and Lifer Bloobury, award winning photographer Cat Boccaccio. Also we are introducing a new artist, Naija Avro. Van Caerndow presents astonishing images created in real life using oil paints on glass.

Alaex Aeon took this wonderful picture of the park. If you are an artist and would like to exhibit here please contact madison Arnahan.

"Body of a Woman" New Exhibit at Palais Orleans

Body of a Woman

The images in this exhibit flow from my fascination with light, shadow and contour.  While landscapes and still lifes allow me to play with those elements, they lend themselves best to  images of the avatar, especially in its feminine form.

Light and shadow allow me to capture mood and feeling, even emotion - here in a place where so many will tell you the 'cartoons' cannot display such things.

The images here are a blend of old and new, and some challenge the traditional notion of what the body of a woman looks like. I hope you enjoy them.

Callipygian Christensen has been creating photographic art, using images shot in Second Life, for over 4 years. Her images have won both juried and fan-favorite competitions, and have been shown in numerous galleries and special exhibitions.  Specializing in portraits, landscapes, and sepia period images, Calli  views SL through the lens of her SL camera, and records her view of the world to share in her art.

Our Grand Opening for Calli's exhibit is Monday, July 26 at 7:00 PM SL Time.
