Gallery Mirror Amsterdam in Second Life®
The Gallery Mirror Amsterdam owned by Arete of Cyrene is a beautiful artistic exhibition that gives ample space to artists very different from each other both for their style and their technique.
The structure that hosts the artistic works was the first aspect that caught my attention. I think that in Second Life® there are not many buildings really suitable for hosting art, but this construction of Gully River (Aethis Creation) is ideally suited to the purpose.
The exhibiting artists are Gitu Aura (2D Art), Mistero Hifeng (3D Art), Ciottolina Xue (3D Art), Cate Ansaldo (2D Art), Miles Cantelou (2D Art), Arete of Cyrene (2D Art), Millo Copperfield ( 2D Art), Vallys Baxter (2D Art).
The structure is divided into 3 exhibition floors, so I recommend visiting the gallery traditionally, moving the avatar and not the camera and climbing the stairs.
The reason for this advice is that, in my experience, there was a bit of lag, so moving around with the camera or the flycam was daunting enough.
It was much more pleasant and relaxing to walk the corridors and spaces moving the avatar.
I also really appreciated the style of furniture, perfectly adapted to exhibitor artists to highlight their work.
Each room hosts a 2D artist, while the Mistero and Ciottolina’s sculptures furnish the gallery almost everywhere.
Finally, I think that the Gallery Mirror Amsterdam is a significant step in the SL® art world to visit periodically to admire new exhibitions.
