New Exhibit comming for the Community Library

The Community Library on Sendalonde is having an International Folklore Tales art exhibition.

It will open with a Warming Party on: Saturday, September 19, 12 noon – 2:00pm IWT
with the fabulous DJ G-Winz!

It will be up for approximately six months.

This theme opens a lot of opportunities, just dive into your childhood and remember the fairy or other tales you liked best.
I have a few, but will pick one that suits me better as an adult :-) used it in my group profile for serveral years…
Its more of a moral  type one, but are those fairy-tales not having them all ? Learn your children well ?
But now adays, most parents stick a tablet in their hands and on they surf on the internet or play games…no need or time for reading stories to them anymore…times change

more  Exhibits to come…

Golden Touch Theatre

InWorldz has a few performing company’s like the Golden Touch Theatre, bringing mostly dance shows !

It was the first time I attended one because it was early enought for me, about 8AM IWT last night.

The company did a great job and many raised and applauded for their fantastic work! Yes, I know how hard it is to make animations/dances, costumes, decor and scripting…but they do it with a lot of fun and companionship :-)

Express yourself, not that easy !

Oh my !!! Even when I’m older and having much information on the internet now, wandering on peoples talent, only speaking of Virtual Art or Expression , I feel immerged in their world and thinking Oh my ! they make such wonderful things, even better than some Real Life exhibits ! Deep sign… I feel happy to be part of their world but at the same time feeling very insignificant and not so Artistic at all !
This is frustrating because I would love to Express more, but you also need the skills in Virtual Reality (internet) to make things happen.  I’ll try do my best but it never equals what I had in mind… It is like reading a book, you make your own scenary but when someone makes a movie of the book it is never THAT GOOD … it is not YOUR imagination…very ennoying !
I can’t draw properly and  having little computer skills and learning every day and that is what I like…only the progress is slow :-) but never giving up even if I try to do it over and over a dozen times !
So yes, sometimes I envy peoples ease to express themselves without any struggle :-) they just do it ! I am more of the hesitant type, thinking how to manage this ?, is this good enough ?
I hear you say, don’t do this, you are blocking yourself ! Be happy with what you can do… hm… but that is not me… sorry ! making it difficult for myself but at the same time I do learn and progress, but slowly.
Jealous ? NO , Frustrated ? YES ! Not enough brains ? YES ! Too old? YES !!!

but I keep trying, perseverance is the name and confidence will grow…NotasMy desperate chaotic notes :-)

If you love art and like to enter peoples world of Virtual imagination and talent ,  just take a look at the DRAX FILES in Second Life

Express Yourself Artfest 2015 Paper Mache

Carnival is an old tradition, for sure in Central Europe.
Each year we have a parade even in small towns with floats.

Sometimes political statements are made in a humorous way.
The figures are mostly made out of paper and glue, we call it Papier-Mâché,(French) or in English Paper Mache.

This project I had in mind for a long time already and now it was appropriate to make something with it.

Express yourself papier mache collage I love RL photography and made several pictures of the parades over the years, so I have a huge collection by now.
The most striking things about the floats are the (deformed) figures, the colors, the creativity and the humor.
For me they are very suited for this exhibit, crazy, wacky, overdone and expressive :-)

I hope you enjoy it !
Have fun:-)

2015 IWZ D&V EXPRESS YOURSELF ART FEST POSTER 5 FINAL -  JPGThis Art Fest is always fun and has a great succes !  For now there will be 38 artist displaying…the criteria : BE WILD, BE CRAZY…and in that perspectieve I really did my best… :-) more to come later….

My first involvement in the Art section was with the Express Yourself Exhibit in 2011. At that time a big questionmark for me… I was not sure what or if it was Art… But I discovered later by having fun in making things this was more important than the question :-).

IWZ 6th Birthday Art impressions

I’m way far behind with my blogposts, sorry, (I honor my name :-)),  but before the new Exhibit comes along, I’ll like to finish this InWorldz 6th Birthday event with some pictures and what I had made for it…If this is correct all the artworks will stay at the sims till end of April, so if you missed it, just TP over and have fun !

I remember the funny pictures I took in the very beginning of InWorldz and the hic-ups we had, stored in my map ‘ weird things happening’. Playing with some pictures cutting them into pieces, putting on a rotating cube and voilà :-)  this was easy…

I called it “Make over with Idiomatic Style’ and ‘Idiomatic Technicolor Style’. Meaning of Idiomatic : ” appropriate to the style of art or music associated with a particular period, individual, or group”. Not to be confused with IDIOTIC !

IW6 – Celebrating 6 Years Of InWorldz!

My God !!!  Times fly, 6 years already :-)

The preparation work for the celebration is almost done and the SIMS are filled up with lovely content.

As usual there will be an Art Sims as well…but not so much respons of artists this time….

The theme for the celebration is ‘Then and Now’ yes, we pioneers remember the hickups, disappearing textures, or even parts of our avatar, unpredictable and without sorry, or we had lost some attachments, or we were naked without realizing it :-) and sometimes we had our ‘Technicolor moment’ , when textures collapsed and colors all messed up ! It was fun to take pictures of those weird things and I used them now in my art build  , called  ‘Make Over’  (more to come later)

Those days we had fun and were patiently waiting to be fixed again… once upon a time when one of the founders was laying on the bridge and keeping an eye on the family so  when a SIM went offline or crashed, we were all pilled up next to her lol, one day I was making some swimming pictures with an alt for a exhibit, my Male Alt landed naked next to her, oh oh my ! I blushed didn’t say a thing to her and went off as fast as I could…those were the days, my friend …:-) Nostalgia is the name !

no legs and technicolor dreams in the headThis could be a René Magritte painting… titled : These are legs !

EC wrote on the Forum :

This year we will be celebrating with entertainment beginning March 28th through April 2nd. After that we will have contests and other fun activities available throughout April and May. We will be sending more info on the contests so stay tuned for that information.

We will have our grand Birthday bash party on April 1st.

The areas will include 5 full sims, 8-13 water scenics, 17-20 scenics for builds. though some of the water sims and scenics will be vacant in order to help minimize lag.

We would like to focus on community and team builds this year. While we will accept individual submissions for builds we will give priority to collaborations and teams/communities.
