The Lost Generation meets ‘Midnight in Paris’ meets ‘Downton Abbey’ meets Second Life

Sneak peak of my new exhibition opening this Saturday May 5th 6-9pm pst in Los Angeles and Second Life ( simultaneously. (Gallery 825 @ 825 N La Cienega Blvd Los Angeles California)

Showcasing a selection from the 1000+ Avatar project, the exhibit will also feature a performance art ‘dinner party’ between people in the physical space of the gallery and people/avatars in the virtual space of Second Life.

(In progress)


Guess who’s coming to dinner???

Wanted to share a few photos of  my preparation for my upcoming show “And one man in his time plays many parts” Opening May 5th in Los Angeles and Second Life simultaneously.

Still need a few items and working on technology, but it’s getting there!! Wooooot!!!!

The photos include a sampling of 116 framed avatar portraits, furniture, the catalog and postcard, a photo of  the gallery where this installation will be created, china for the dinner party and some second life preparations. There is also a photo of the fireplace surround I am dreaming of getting…LOL Cross your fingers!! It would  fit perfectly in the show!!

My solo show!!!

Did you know I have a solo show coming up in May? It’s opening May 5th in Los Angeles and Second Life respectively. I am hosting a mixed reality dinner party between my friends in the virtual world of Second life and the physical world. The gallery is being created in a 1920’s dining room inspired by Gertrude Stein’s home and salon in Paris. I finished the 40 page catalog…


I have bought some chairs for the space…


Found some great items that will fit perfectly in the space too.


I have bought 107 frames which I am framing with avatar portraits and will be hung on the walls in a salon style.


Some of the larger prints for the show…


I have so much more to do…

I am thinking of the video/audio technology for the show, what to have for dinner, a dress, hair and make-up and paint for  the walls. I am still looking for a dining table and chairs and rug as well as more chairs and tables to sit in the space.

Hmmm I know there is more but can’t think now… I’m on my 3rd glass of sparking white zin…LOL

Keep an eye on the blog and I’ll try to post more pics and keep you updated on the show!! It’s coming along!!!

Less than a month to go!!!

15 hours to go!!!! Woooot!!!!!

Exhibition catalog cover…

Check out my indiegogo site for info on my upcoming show in May.

I’m getting closer to my goal!! Every little bit helps. It is an important show about equality, diversity and being free to be whoever you want to be.

Thank you all so much for your support!!!

Guess who’s coming to dinner???

Just got the postcards for my upcoming show!!! Woooot!!!!

I still need your help. I have 4 days left on my indiegogo site to help raise money for the installation/performance involving second life avatars. It is going to be such a great show and will  help bring the importance of virtual art even more into the real art world.

When I joined the virtual world of Second Life over 5 years ago, I was a painter showing digital copies of my work in virtual galleries. I immediately saw the potential of this online digital environment for artists, writers and musicians. I have met so many amazing and talented people from all over the world. I have often compared the art community in Second Life to Paris of the 1920s which attracted a similar group of artists, writers, poets and musicians who sought inspiration and an exchange of ideas.

Please check out the indiegogo  site and become a patron. Every little bit helps!! Check out the great perks you will receive for donating.


Thank you all so much for your support and friendship!! You guys rock!!!


What’s next, you ask???

Hi there… So yep, I am continuing the 1000+ Avatar project by bringing it even further into RL…YAY!!!

Right now I am working on a mixed reality show that will take place in Los Angeles and Second Life opening May 5th. I started an indiegogo site to help support the project. If you could share the site with your friends, that would be wonderful!!!
