Simploring 2019 (62) Deva Westland’s Galerie Des Beaux-Arts

I picked a landmark from scoop.it SL Destinations for my simploring tour on Tuesday, May28th – Deva Westland’s Galerie Des Beaux-Arts.

“Flights of Fantasy” at Deva Westland’s Galerie Des Beaux-Arts

Deva Westland’s Galerie Des Beaux-Arts (or shorter Deva’s GdBA) is located in a full region on mainland named Gerstle. It is housed in a large manor that looks like a museum. The rooms ar quite large. On the first floor there’re several rooms, the second floor is just one big room, that is used also for events and dancing.

It features 22 pictures from 19 different artists: Leo Beverly (Leonorah Beverly), Razor Cure, SeleneLily Galicia, Gidgy (Gidgette Adagio), AmandaSue Hallison, Jaz (Jessamine2108), Wynn Klaar, Broderick Logan (brodericklogan), Ena Logan (enaroane), Tralala Loordes, Skye McLeod Fairywren (Skye Fairywren), Saz Ninetails, Doyle Slen (beastmcstien), Ulf Winterwolf (ulfnir winterwolf), Liz Winterstorm (tinliz), Petrushka Petrov, Rya Santana (smalldoll), Clive Yardley and Deva Westland herself.

Welcome to Second Life … where you can grow wings and fly, where your legs can disappear in place of a tail. This is the place you can let your fantasies run, of fly free! This is the place where our only limitation is our imagination!” … is written on one wall of the the first room when you enter Deva’s GdBA and the current exhibition “Flights of Fantasy”

Of course all exhibited pictures are about fantasy. Each picture is presented with enough room, so you can step back and fully look at it. Next to each picture is a plate with the artitst name that contains a notecard with information about the artist, the exhibited picture and related links like flickr streams. Mainly Deva has written these notecards herself, some are written by the artists.

I didn’t come across any of these artists, maybe because I follow different passions in my Second Life. Nonetheless Deva succeeded to pull me a bit into fantasy worlds and to enjoy the different worlds. In the pictures itself and in the texts about them and about the artists I could feel the passion for fantasy of Deva and the other artists.

Close to the entrance are some slideshows titled Winter 2017 or Warmth 2018. I assume these sildeshows show the pictures of former exhibtions at Deva’s GdBA.

I enjoyed my visit to “Flights of Fantasy”, some pictures warmed my heart. Thank you Deva for curating the Galerie Des Beaux-Arts and for collecting all the information. I strongly recommend to read the notecards while looking at the the pictures as they provide the background or the intentions of the artists. And they provide the related links if you want to see more.
