Art in Second Life 2020 (36) Michiel Bechir’s Art Gallery in June/July exhibitions

I got an invitation for an opening party for a new exhibtion at Michiel Bechir’s Art Gallery for Saturday, June 20th. As I had other activities at night in Second Life, I peeked in already on Thursday, June 18th.

The new exhibtion features the art of Pavel Stransky and Hazel Foxtrot on the ground level and the pictures of Jaz (Jessamine2108) on the 2nd floor.

Right at the entrance you see Michiel Bechir’s on work. Michiel has started his long virtual journey into Second Life as a photographer in 2009. Michiel enjoys seeing new places, meeting new people from all over the world and expierencing the creativity in Second Life (just like I do!). Michiel discovered the possiblities of different tools to improve his pictures. By editing them he also tries to add a personal touch and feeling. Experiments with the effect of colors are often done, and more recently he is trying to show the details by working with high resolution photos.

Michiel Bechir’s Gallery in June/July – Michiel Bechir’s own pictures

To the right from the entrance is the room with the pictures of Pavel Stransky, who joined Second Life almost 13 years ago. Pavel Stransky’s motivation to visit sims in Second Life are quite the same as Michiel’s and like Michiel he takes pictures inworld and as far as I could see, Pavel also processes his pictures. But his style is quite comparable with Michiel’s – at least from what I saw. Pavel Stransky has also a flickr account.

To the left from the entrance is the room with the pictures of Hazel Foxtrot, who is active in Second Live since 2008 and she shares the passion of taking pictures. Her motives are a bit different to those of Michiel and Pavel. 3 of her pictures reminded me of Melusina Parkin’s Roadside pictures (read here), an exhibition that I visited in May. Other picture capture the atmosphere of towns. Hazel has also a flickr account.

Michiel Bechir’s Gallery in June/July – Hazel Foxtrot

All three Michiel, Pavel and Hazel make pictures while traveling through Second Life. They find great motives and the right viewing angle to creat their art.

The exhibtion on the 2nd floor of Michiel Bechir’s Art Gallery, named Balance, is different. It combines pictures from Jaz (Jessamine2108) with poems from Zoe Ocelot. Balance is an exhibtion about the current pandemic and its effect on humans and animals as well as on nature due to the lack of pollution and cleaner air and water.
Before you enter the room you’re asked to wear a face mask, which is provided, The exhibtion has two parts, that are divided by a fence. One side shows pictures and texts from the physcial world. Very impressive is a picture from India showing the vers same place before and during the lockdown and how the air got clean. A 3D model of the earth is in the center of the room and circled by dark polluted clouds as well as be clean clouds.
On the other side of the fence you see pictures from Jaz, taken in Second Life but clearly referring to the corona pandemic.

Michiel Bechir’s Gallery in June/July – Balance by Jaz and Zoetrope Ocelot

Jaz has been doing photography in SL since 2018: “It would be more than appropriate to say that Milla (Ladmilla) introduced me to the nuances in the art. While I still have much to learn, I am enjoying every minute of it. Special thanks to Eta (Etamae Resident) for making me look at the amazing possibilities of SL and to Harry Cover (impossibleisnotfrench Resident) for giving me an opportunity and courage to branch out on my own and to be able to collaborate and experiment with mesh with him.
Jaz exhibits some of her work at her homeplace Third Eye and has an own little gallery Bohemian Imaginarium@ – two places to add to my list.

Thank you Michiel for enabling this joined exhibition, thanks to the artists for their work. I enjoyed my visit!

Art in Second Life 2020 (29) SUBCUTAN Art Gallery and Multimedia Centre

Following my visit at Eta’s Extempore Gallery and Lounge (read here) where I saw Sophie Marie Sinclair (perpetua1010)’s exhibition “Inspiration in Red”, I visited the SUBCUTAN Art Gallery and Multimedia Centre, which is Spohie’s own gallery.

SUBCUTAN Art Gallery and Multimedia Centre consists of several buildings that are arranged around a broad and wide court in the center: The Main Gallery and Multimedia Centre, 3 gallery buildings and a party and event building (cube). In the center is a meeting point and across that is an inforamtion centre under a tent where you can also get a freebie (for joining the group)

The whole setting is ultra modern and the buildings have a modern architecture with a lot of glass for natural light. You find enough areas to party, to meet or for celebrations. I started my visit at the information centre which offers the above mentioned freebie (a handbag with a Lagerfeld likeness) and information about what is shown in the different buildings.

SUBCUTAN Art Gallery and Multimedia Centre – Information Centre

“Sophie Marie Sinclair is a RL painter and book author. She mainly paints nude from models and abstract art. She loves to experiment with different kind of paint and lithography. She has made several book illustrations and was for many years political cartoonist for a well known satire magazine. She lived and worked in the Unites States, Australia, Rome and Monaco.”
(taken from the notcard I got at the Extempore Gallery and Lounge)

Gallery 1 showns Sophie Marie Sinclair’s art with the title “Emotions in Black and White”. Sophie’s art is not explicit, you always need to look longer and more detailed at them to get the gist, to see the emotion and thus her art has a particular effect on the viewer.

SUBCUTAN Art Gallery and Multimedia Centre – Gallery 1: “Emotions in Black and White”

Gallery 2 shows Sophie Marie Sinclair’s art with the title “Red Expressions”, which I saw at Eta’s Extempore Gallery and Lounge under the title “Inspiration in Red”, powerful paintings in red with a fantastic 3D-effect.

SUBCUTAN Art Gallery and Multimedia Centre – Gallery 2: “Red Expressions”

Gallery 3 is was not occupied with an exhibtion on the time of my visit (May 2nd).

The cube is a great place to party and celebrate. Again the space has an ultramodern setting. I had fun looking at the details and in these times the flamingo sign “corona” conjured a smile in my face.

SUBCUTAN Art Gallery and Multimedia Centre – Cube

I ended my visit at the Main Gallery and Multimedia Centre. In front of it are two sculptures: “Sisters” by Cherry Manga and “Apple Fall ‘Strength’ Fragment” by Apple Pancake. Both sculptures can develop their expressional strength standing alone with the modern environment as backround.

SUBCUTAN Art Gallery and Multimedia Centre – Main Building with sculptures in front of it, lower right shows “granite art” exhibited around the staircase

Inside of the building is a presentation hall where you can watch movies or other performance art. At the time of my visit, I could watch a video about the “SUBCUTAN Art Gallery and Multimedia Centre“.

In the Main Gallery and Mulitmedia Centre you find more of Sophie’s art. On the ground floor the exhibtion titled “Yellow Nude Expressions”, which picks up the theme of “Emotions in Black and White”, just in yellow. Again you have to look twice to see persons and emotions, the pictures are a bit more explicit though.

SUBCUTAN Art Gallery and Multimedia Centre – Main Gallery: “Yellow Nude Expressions”

Around the staircase to the 2nd floor of the Main Gallery and Mulitmedia Centre you find some picture that look like granite, like patterns engraved in granite. On the 2nd floor is again a large corner for events or celebrations in front of a picture titled “Akt Blau liegend” and another exhibition of Spohie’s art with quite erotic, colourful and expressive bodies and faces. I found no title for this part.

SUBCUTAN Art Gallery and Multimedia Centre – Main Gallery: art on the 2nd floor

SUBCUTAN Art Gallery and Multimedia Centre is worth a visit and if it is just for the architecture. Sophie Marie Sinclair (perpetua1010)’s art covers several styles yet most of her pictures do express strong emotions and they develop their effect on the viewer who takes a second and third look at them. This effect is also expressed in the name of the gallery centre: subcutan – because the art gets under your skin.

It might have not been my last vist. Thank you Sophie for your art and for creating the SUBCUTAN Art Gallery and Multimedia Centre. I look forward to seeing more exhibtions.

Art in Second Life 2020 (27) Extempore Gallery and Lounge

After my blogpost about the April exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli (read here) I had contact with one of the artists who were featured in this exhibition – Etamae.
Etamae is from the UK and began taking photographs and then turning those photographs into digital art in 2018.
Her first passion was erotic art and I had come across Etamae in 2019 the first time when I visited her exhibtion “Dominance and Submission” at Elevate Femdom (see here).

And more of etamae’s erotic art can be seen at Eta’s Feed Your Fetish Gallery which is “a little edgy, somewhat sensual centered about the erotic and the BDSM lifestyle” and hence does fit to my personal passion. On Monday, April 27th, I visited Eta’s Feed Your Fetish Gallery (see my blogpost here).

Besides owning Eta’s Feed Your Fetish Gallery Etamae owns two other galleries and I visited one of them on Thursday April 30th: The Extempore Gallery and Lounge.

Extempore Gallery and Lounge – impressions of etamae’s own art

At the Extempore Gallery and Lounge Etamae showcases pictures taken in Second Life and manipulated in particular by recolouring and adding light effects to them as well as some animated permantently changing pictures. Etamae is not defined by just one style or area of art, she plays with different patterns and tries herself out in a broader spectrum of art.

At the Extempore Gallery and Lounge Etamae not only showcases her own art but provides the space also to other artists. At the time of my visit the gallery featured also the art from: CybeleMoon (hana.hoobinoo), Patrick Moya, Sophie Marie Sinclair (perpetua1010), Aneli Abeyante, Jipe Loon, Patrick Ireland (PatrickofIreland), Harry Cover (impossibleisnotfrench) and Safar Fiertze.

Extempore Gallery and Lounge – impressions of Patrick Moya’s art

I saw already some of Patrick Moya (moja janus)’s art. I came across him in 2017 when I visited his Moya Land (read Simploring 2017 (56) Moya).
Patrick Moya (born 1955 in Troyes, France), is a French artist. He is a part of the artistic movement “Ecole de Nice”. Moya has been at the forefront since the 1970s of straddling the latest forms of media and technology to benefit art rather than rendering it extinct.
(excerpt from wikipedia).
He is an early pioneer of video art and is active with his art in Second Life since 2007 in addition to his work in the physical world. The barriers between the two worlds do blur in his artistic work. Moya Patrick (moya janus) has also a website http://moyapatrick.com/ with tons of information about his work and about Moya in Second Life. Unfortunately it is in French only.
At the Extempore Gallery and Lounge we see examples and drafts of at Moya label in many different variations. I’m not sure, but somehow it felt familiar, I might have seen some ot the exhibits already before

Extempore Gallery and Lounge – impressions of CybeleMoon (hana.hoobinoo)’s art

I also came across CybeleMoon or Hana Hoobinoo already a few times, the last time when I visited “The Itakos Project and Art Gallery“ (read here). Cybele’s picture always have a fantasy background and often show portraits or people in a peaceful, mostly hazy fantasy world. Her pictures seem to tell a story, that you have to make up yourself.

Extempore Gallery and Lounge – impressions of Sophie Marie Sinclair (perpetua1010)’s art

Sophie Marie Sinclair is a RL painter and book author. She mainly paints nude from models and abstract art. She loves to experiment with different kind of paint and lithography. She has made several book illustrations and was for many years political cartoonist for a well known satire magazine. She lived and worked in the Unites States, Australia, Rome and Monaco.
At Extempore Gallery and Lounge you can see some of her “Inpirations in Red”, powerful paintings in red with a fantastic 3D-effect.

Extempore Gallery and Lounge – impressions of Aneli Abeyante and Jipe Loon’s art

Aneli Abeyante, who runs La Maison d’Aneli, creates objects in 2D and 3D, colourful, steadily moving, and with particular light effects. Aneli writes about herself:
I love geometry and mathematics. So after much practice, I managed to clear structures and shapes. In reality I practice painting, I do not have precise style but I always seek harmonization.”
Some of the Aneli’s work exhibited at Extempore Gallery and Lounge was already shown at La Maison d’Aneli in January/February 2020 (see my blogpost here). You see geometrical shapes with one dominating colour. Most of the displays as constantly changing.

The 3D figures that are showcase in the area of the staircase were created by Jipe Loon, erotic figures, truely exaggerated yet intriguing. Jipe is in Second Life for more than 12 years and he sells his creations on the marketplace. I came across some of his figures already before in the frame of my simploring tours, but I never saw more than one, yet at Extempore Gallery and Lounge you see a few of them.

Extempore Gallery and Lounge – impressions of Patrick Ireland (PatrickofIreland)’s art

When I visited “The Itakos Project and Art Gallery“ (read here) I saw an exhibition of Partick Ireland’s art but I couldn’t find any information about him. Patrick’s art, surrealism pure, is shown also at Extempore Gallery and Lounge, but there was a notecard with a bit more information, including his SL name PatrickofIreland:
Originally in SL in 2008 and recently back after a hiatus of many years, Patrick found his passion for SL photography a little more than a year ago. In this short time, he has become a prolific SL photographer known for his detailed sets and desire to share the joy of his many interests, including surreal subjects, Asian art and philosophy, civic issues and, of course, love.

Extempore Gallery and Lounge – impressions of Harry Cover (impossibleisnotfrench) and Safar Fiertze’s art

Harry Cover, also known as Impossibleisnotfrench, is from France. He started his second life by playing with prims, then sculpties and finally mesh (Blender). He’s passionate about photos and  graphic designer in RL (among others). One of his objects – Statue vis ecrou all inone – can also be found at my home *winks*. Harry also works with Serene Footman, who creates sims after real places, you’d usually never come across exploring the world as a tourist. He creates landmark buildings for Serene and I mentioned him several times already when I wrote about Serene Footman’s weired outstanding places.

Safar Fiertze has two installations at Extempore Gallery and Lounge. She’s in SL for almost 12 years and writes about herself: “I love labyrinths and labyrinthian minds. I like the artistic and innovative juxtaposition of words. I’ve discovered the joys of juxtaposing prims
Baletka is an interactive story experience at Extempore Gallery and Lounge loosely inspired by an R.D. Laing case study. You can walk through the story and see Safar’s 3D art.
There’s a second installation of Safar Fiertze “Mechanical Apparition of Emergent Dream” where you can interact with bouncing balls, which reproduce themselves – intriguing.

My spontaneous visit to Extempore Gallery and Lounge became longer than I thought. I had fun seeing it and I enjoyed the art from artists who I came across before again. Thank you etamae for providing and curating your Gallery. I had only one more gallery from etamae to visit “Etamae’s gallery at Absolute Bliss” and I tried Saturday, May 2nd .. but it is gone or the Landmark I had was invalid,

Art in Second Life 2020 (26) Eta’s Feed Your Fetish Gallery

After my blogpost about the April exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli (read here) I had contact with one of the artists who were featured in this exhibition – Etamae.

Etamae is from the UK and began taking photographs and then turning those photographs into digital art in 2018.
Her first passion was erotic art and I had come across Etamae in 2019 the first time when I visited her exhibtion “Dominance and Submission” at Elevate Femdom (see here).

And more of etamae’s erotic art can be seen at Eta’s Feed Your Fetish Gallery which is “a little edgy, somewhat sensual centered about the erotic and the BDSM lifestyle” and hence does fit to my personal passion. On Monday, April 27th, I visited Eta’s Feed Your Fetish Gallery.

Eta’s Feed Your Fetish Gallery (2)

etamae uses the pictures she took at Second Life and processes them to create her artwork. Some of the poses look familiar to me, yet etamae perfectionized the pictures and added more erotic touch by light and shadow and at least for some of her pictures by adding a word or a thought. Her pictures touched me and made me shiver, just at is should be with this kind of art. My pictures taken at Eta’s Feed Your Fetish Gallery tell more than words could do.

Eta’s Feed Your Fetish Gallery (3)

As seen at the April exibition at La Maison d’Aneli etamae’s artistic sprectrum has broadened but I suspect that she still has a passion for erotic art. Etamae has also another gallery to showcase her art, the Extempore Gallery and Lounge, another gallery I might visit soon.

Eta’s Feed Your Fetish Gallery (4)

Thank you for your “Feed Your Fetisch Gallery“. I really enjoyed my visit there, etamae

Art in Second Life 2020 (17) La Maison d’Aneli April 2020

On Wednesday, April 8th, the April exhibtion at La Maison d’Aneli was opened to the public. This time it features the art of Agleo Runningbear, Eifachfilm Vacirca, Etamae, FionaFei, Tralala Loordes, Xirana Oximoxi and Kalyca McCallen. I peeked into the exhibtion already on Sunday, April 5th.

I started my visit with the room presenting the art of Etamae.
Etamae is from the UK and began transforming her pictures from  the things she has seen and loved in Second Life into something else, in digital art in 2018. I came across Etamae in 2019 when I visited her exhibtion “Dominance and Submission” at Elevate Femdom (see here). Today Etamae has also an own gallery to showcase her art, the Extempore Gallery and Lounge, another gallery I might visit soon. At La Maison d’Aneli Etamae works with animated pictures that change permanently either with fading in and out different perspectives of the same picture or with zooming in and out. Two of these pictures are on twisted surfaces thus increasing the animation effect. We see heads and bodies or broken bits of them, the walls are covered by webs of barb wire, faces watch us… you can let your mind wander in the complexity of thoughts and impressions.

La Maison d’Aneli – April 2020 – Etamae

Kalyca McCallen and Proton d-oo-b (Eifachfilm Vacirca) formed Alchemelic, a Zurich-based music and art project with cinematographic background, mixed media, and 3D modeling. Proton d-oo-b (Eifachfilm Vacirca) is from Switzerland and looks back on decades of experience in different media businesses. His music style ranges from traditional to experimental. Kalyca McCallen is a multi-media artist from California and loves experimenting with texture and color. They aspire to spark our imagination and elevate our mood with their unique blend of visual art and original music. Kalyca McCallen and Proton d-oo-b (Eifachfilm Vacirca)’s installation at La Maison d’Aneli is titeled “The Space Between”. In their room you see three large 3D heads on both long sides of their room leading you to a door that brings you to platform with the core installation. You enter the space … planets and stars around you between 2 even larger 3D heads, a strange world, a fantasy, science fiction in your mind. Imagine that with experimental music!
Unfortunately I had no music from Alcemelic during my visit though but I had a look at their youtube channel, where you find many long and short clips of their music and their 3D art. The provided notecard at La Maison d’Aneli provides much more information and many more links.

La Maison d’Aneli – April 2020 – Kalyca McCallen and Proton d-oo-b (Eifachfilm Vacirca)

April Louise Turner (Agleo Runningbear) is an artisan shaman with native American, Romanian, German and Irish roots (wow). She makes perfomances, poems and paintings. Her art is also featured at ArtCare Gallery, another place to be added on my list of places to visit. At La Maison d’Aneli we see portraits in different techniques, mainly pencil drawings. At the time of my visit, her room was not yet finished and the pictures weren’t yet aligned perfectly, but the pictures itself were already there and the longer you look at them, the more they impress.

La Maison d’Aneli – April 2020 – April Louise Turner (Agleo Runningbear)

Tralala Loordes is in Second Life since SL 2009 and devoted to everything post-apocalyptic. But she’s also tempted by LODE headpieces. To her “they’re so much like Renaissance flower paintings. Flowers also have stories, myths, lore”. I never heard about LODE headpieces nor did I find a definition. In her room at La Maision d’Aneli you can see them: fantasy portraits with huge headpieces made of flowers and other elements. The pictures are presented in a fantasy environment, each picture held by a hand, a few pigeons on the floor and flying around and 2 large trees at the entrance so that you enter a different world.

La Maison d’Aneli – April 2020 – Tralala Loordes

Xirana Oximoxi is a Catalan artist, children’s books writer and illustrator. She works with different mediums, oil, watercolor, acrylic, ink, charcoal and pastel. At La Maison d’Aneli she presents her exhibition “Lost Souls”, which is in some way related to the current situation in all of our real lifes: “During these days of confinement many of us have to reinvent ourselves a bit so we can have a better time locked up at home. Walking around the rooftop I noticed the irregular surface of the walls and they have become a source of inspiration. “Lost Souls” is the title of a series of images I discovered following a small crack or the configuration suggested by the little fragments of rock of the conglomerate. The technique is a mixed media of photography and digital retouch.” It is fun to look at these stone surfaces and to discover faces, it attracts your attention to look more intensively and to abstract. It is not the first time that she is featured at La Maison d’Aneli. I saw her exhibtion “Women Artists XVI-XIX” there in February 2019 (see here)
Xirana has her an own website and an own blog.

La Maison d’Aneli – April 2020 – Xirana Oximoxi

I came across FionaFei’s art already two times this year visiting her Shui Mo Gallery (see here) and visiting her installation Impostor (see here).
Fiona is Chinese by decent but spent the majority of her life in the West: “I have a fascination with Chinese history and culture, but I often feel like I’m viewing my ancestry through a filter of Americanized information and experiences. Furthermore, my artistic background has been in charcoal and oil painting mediums, and I’ve had very little experience in actual ink-brush painting.” For more information look up FionaFei’s own website.
At La Maison d’Aneli we see 6 2D paintings of Fiona arranged at the left and at the right side of her installation. The installation itself is a bit more colourful then what I saw from her so far, held in black, red and green. And again you can walk in and get a part of the installation – and walking in your get different perspectives. Another piece of art, another technique – and I like it.

La Maison d’Aneli – April 2020 – FionaFei

La Maison d’Aneli is owned by Aneli Abeyante. Through her gallery she brings together all forms of creativity in RL and SL and the featured artists come from around the globe. Aneli’s intention is to “put her gallery in the service of artists, so that the world can be better, exchanges and meetings probably contribute even though it seems to be particles.
Thank you for another great joined exhibtion, Aneli. As always I enjoyed my visit and writing about it. It always inspires me.

Simploring 2019 (30) Elevate Femdom Lounge & Spa 2019 – “a trip to india”

On March 5th, I visited “Elevate Femdom“, a landmark I got from Ally (ally259), who recommended a visit. Elevate Femdom, or with it’s full name Elevate Femdom Lounge & Spa 2019 – “a trip to india”, is described in the landmark profile as:
Set in an exquisite Indian themed venue, Elevate Femdom Lounge & Spa offers a truly unique Female Led BDSM experience.” and tagged with “Mistress, sub, slave, Domme, Fetish, Bondage, domination, submission, dancing, live music, Femdom, Spa, Pool, event, fetish club“.
Of course it is an adult place. They host regular events including discussions, workshops, art exhibitions, fetish parties and banquets. Elevate Femdom is owned by mynx (mispixl) and her Mistress wife Eva Burroughs (evangelinaburroughs).

The landing point is in a seperate welcome pavilion, where you can get a notecard with some background information about Elevate Femdom and a notecard with the simrules. I recommend reading the rules, although they are quite simple considering that it is a femdom place and everybody is asked behave accordingly.

Overview – Elevate Femdom Lounge & Spa 2019 – “a trip to india”

At the time I visited, mynx (mispixl) and Eva Burroughs (evangelinaburroughs) and quite some other guests were present, amoung who were the sim manager Lethra Nyx (crazysad1stlady), the house slave Meldoran and the head barman and event host Marcas (marcasalan). Eva Burroughs kindly asked Marcas (marcasalan) to offer me a tour, which Marcas did. He was very kind, led me around everywhere, answered my questions and was just perfectly well-mannered.

Marcas: May I show yoou around, Miss Diomita?
Diomita: yes
Marcas: Miss Eva and Mynx have created a beautiful new place for those of us who call Elevate home. We can start with the main house. Most recently in between sims we had a bar called Elevate Wine bar. To my right we have incorporated it into the larger sim. We host smaller more intimate events here in the bar such as impromptu dances. A big part of this is community and it’s important to have plenty of places where we can congregate in different settings. Up the stairs here is our chat area.
Diomita: The chat area quite spacious
Marcas: Yes, it’s very open, but at the same time Miss Eva, Mynx and I feel like kept it contained to retain a sense of intimacy
We entered the chat area where I was kindly welcomed and introduced to the other guests.
Marcas: This, like I said is our main chat area. A lot of our guests often come here in the mornings and chat as they’re getting ready for work RL. There is also a room to each side of this one for smaller groups or couples for a more intimate setting. This allows people a break when the main area may get more full or “rambunctious” for their mood
Diomita: yes, the booths looks more cosy
Marcas: The whole sim is loosely based on a region of India, I believe called Kemar known for its waterways
Diomita: ah, therefor the subtitle “a trip to India”
Marcas: Also we like to have an area for more formal gatherings and events and every Christmas we have a holiday banquet. Our main dining room is this way.

Elevate Femdom: The landing pavilion (upper left), the bar (upper right), the chat area (lower left) and an intimate booth (lower right)

Diomita: and there is the pool
Marcas: Yes, the pool is down this way. A couple of the peacocks get a little friendly. Although this area is wide open and has plenty of room for large groups it’s also a great place to come when you want some alone time.
Marcas: Obviously this is an adult sim and much of the furniture and accessories allow for that type of entertainment
Diomita: is there also a dungeon?
Marcas: There is no dungeon. They had something like that at the old sim, and Miss Eva and Mynx found that it wasn’t getting much use

Elevate Femdom: The banquet hall (upper left and right), the pool (lower left and right)

Diomita: so what I missed seeing then is the event area, right?
Marcas grins “I was saving that for last, Miss”
Marcas: We’re having an event there that I’ve had the privelage in taking part in the preparations. It’s this way.
Marcas: This is our events area and normally looks like a wooden pavillion. Tomorrow we’re kicking off our new monthly Coffee Shop Art series. Each month we hope to feature one artist with an exhibit event and then display their pieces in the bar for the month
Diomita: So this exhibition ends today?
Marcas: No, it begins tomorrow. We just finished setting it up this morning
Diomita: for how long will it be opened?
Marcas: In here it will just be a day or two, but my hope is to move the pieces into the bar for the next month. All items will be on sale, proceeds of their sale will go to benefit the sim and the artist
Diomita: Eta Goldsmith (etamae) is the artist?
Marcas: Yes
Diomita: Why is it only opened so short … that is unusal for an exhibtion
Marcas: The event in here will be short yes, so we can use the space for other events but the exhibit itself will still be on display in the bar for a month
Diomita: good. I didn’t come across Eta Goldsmith (etamae) so far, but I really like her art.

Dominance and Submission by Eta Goldsmith (etamae) at Elevate Femdom

Diomita: unfortunately I have to run now
Marcas: Well thank you for indulging me in showing off the place
Diomita: thank you for the tour. I really enjoyed it, Marcas
Marcas: It was a pleasure meeting you.
Diomita: is the sim European dominated?
Marcas: Between Europe and England, yes. but there is a growing contingent of us from the US and Canada. I’d say the UK has the highest population here, but that’s also where Miss Eva and Mynx are from
Diomita: I understand. Thank you again … I really have to run now
Marcas: You’re welcome and come back any time

I really enjoyed my visit and the tour. I like the concept, that Mynx (mispixl) and Eva Burroughs (evangelinaburroughs) have realised at Elevate Femdom. I enjoyed my short visit to Eta Goldsmith (etamae)’s Exhibition “Dominance and Submission”.
I was impressed by the hospitality and the politeness of everybody I met. Elevate Femdom is for sure a really nice community for everybody who’s into female domination – and doesn’t have torture and dark dungeons as their primary kink. Thank you Mynx and Eva for providing this place, and thank you for everybody involved.
And last but not least, thank you, Marcas!
