Art Sanctuary writes for SLEnquirer

A New Look …


Do you know that there are more than 500 galleries in Second Life?
In Second Life art and culture flourish more then ever before. Each day there are new exhibitions opening, new cultural events organized, and it is difficult for you to decide which galleries or events to visit. SLEnquirer asked Art Sanctuary, Raspirit Heron and WieBenIk Beaumont, to write a weekly art and culture page to help you in your selection. We are very proud to start this week with this page.
We don't want to give a list of all events happening next weekend, in a subjective way we select only the ones we hope will give you a nice time by visiting the artists or the events.
The Art Sanctuary wants to promote art which uses Second Life opportunities as much as possible and we will focus on events which combine different art expressions, such as music, story, poems, paintings, building.
Raspirit and I are very subjective in our selections, it is not an evaluation of the artist or event.
Each week we will have three important topics;
We will report on a past event (a pity you weren’t there - you missed it!)
Events happening next weekend
Featured article or interview, focus on an important person, event, SL site

Next weekend events

The SLEnquirer and the Art Sanctuary want to publish an overview of the next weekend events, excluding repeating events. It is not an ordinary event calendar! We only include the events the newspaper reader wants to experience, because it’s new, it’s appealing and the reader looks for quality time. If you organize an art or cultural event then please send an IM to Raspirit Heron or WieBenIk Beaumont or a mail to SLArtSanctuary@hotmail.com. Please include in your message the date and time (we only use SL time!) and the type of event. Please add also an appealing short description (maximal 50 words), convincing the reader. You can also add a small picture or logo (jpeg, maximal 250 on 250). We expect your event description not later than on Monday evening. We prepare the publishing on Tuesday morning.

The Art Sanctuary (http://slurl.com/secondlife/Art%20Sanctuary/179/89/22) is a 'fairy-tale-kind-of-place'. It is made of dreams and secret longings, love. It features happy encounters with magic and wonderment. It's a painter's dream and a poetic sanctuary. The Art Sanctuary as the muse of poets and story tellers, this is the theme of the contest.

The Krystal Epic Shopping centre (http://slurl.com/secondlife/Seranil/95/168/21) features a brand new line of Krystal Spheres. Taking advantage of the power of Second Life, these unique spheres create each a “Total Environmental Experience". They are individually themed with matching furniture.

And there are nice prizes to win!
The Best poem and short story receive each 1500 L. Krystal Epic adds also a discount of 50% on all products bought at the Krystal Epic Shopping Centre. For the king and the queen in the dream, the Art Sanctuary gives the king-size, romantic Dreamers bed. It is based on the "Dreamers" painting made by Raspirit Heron.The runner up Poem and Story receives each 500 L.
It’s a very easy and simple contest, no difficult rules. Let the emotions, the feelings, or perhaps a romantic encounter inspire you. Write a short or a longer poem or story, send your creation to Raspirit Heron by mail (RaspiritHeron@hotmail.com) or use an in-world notecard.

All the creations are published on the Art Sanctuary (http://art-sanctuary.blogspot.com/) and the Krystal Epic website (http://story.krystalepic.com/). We ask to submit before Thursday 20/Sep/2007 (CET).

Magical Evening


I've been trying to find words....
and I know that there are many many... '
wonderful', and 'very special',
'super', 'grand' - 'incredible!'

They're there, like red and shiny apples
ready for the picking
And I pick them -

one by one I put them in my basket

Apples last a long time I don't have to eat them now
I can even paint them if I want to in a still life

And paint will turn to sunny fruity smells
I think
as I am reaching for the golden apple all the way on top

That's the one!

That's the word!

The word is 'Magical'!
(Raspirit)

We want to thank everyone who came and made this official opening of the Art Sanctuary a truly memorable evening:
- Chelle, who voiced us through the program and gave us all the sweet music to dance to;
- Enniv Zarf, whose most beautiful piano music put a real sparkle on the whole event!
- And most of all, we thank all of you, friends and new aquaintances, who took the time to come and celebrate with us!
- And our regrets about SL limitations that prevented so many more who expressed their wishes to come.

Greetings from Raspirit Heron and WieBenIk Beaumont

NEW OPENING DATE - SEPTEMBER 2 - 07


We have decided to postpone the official opening until September 2!

For the opening we wanted to have a "Seahorse Chariot" system. It will guide you through the whole Art Sanctuary site, giving the visitor all nice places to see and to visit in detail.
The development and the configuration of the "Seahorse Chariot" takes more time than expected, so we have to postpone the opening with 2 weeks.
The "Seahorse Chariot" is also used as the internal transport system for the Art Sancturay.

Best greetings
from Raspirit Heron and WieBenIk Beaumont

Art Sanctuary Isle

It's official: The Art Sanctuary will be moving - to an island;
Not just yet, but soon! An exciting Stage 2 in the evolution of the Art Sanctuary!

Living at the Art Sanctuary?



Have you ever considered living inside a Sun Flower?
Well, now you can!
For those who may remember the painting 'Waterway' (see enclosed photo) - this is now in the process of becoming an apartment building! Yes, you read right. No, not a big ugly one... a funny and strange one perhaps...and just tall enough to give a very nice view over the Sanctuary and the ocean surrounding the island!
We have started a list of those potentially interested, so if you fancy the idea, don't hesitate!
(IM any questions:))

Tuesday, 12 June 2007

The Art Sanctuary is officially open!












Thanks to all who made the opening of the Art Sanctuary such a special occasion!
To see all the people walking about in this 'painted universe' - meeting and talking with many of you - and to hear what your experience of it is - is just a little bit beyond description:), and fantastic!
This is stage 1; the Sanctuary is evolving - and we hope you come again and again, enjoy and bring friends.
Also want to thank you for the purchases - these enable the continuation of the vision.
Don't hesitate to IM any questions, requests, or comments - we love to hear from you!

The Art Sanctuary Opening June 10th - 07

---> 22:00 CET (13:00 SL): "Mood Dynamic Frame" and "Smart Frame" demo;

At arrival you will receive a free welcome gift.Streaming music is available during the opening and the party.Because avatars are always thirsty and hungry free drinks and foods will be present.During the whole event Raspirit Heron and WieBenIk Beaumont will be available to answer answer any questions and help you.

The "Art Sanctuary" is the SL realization of the RL dreams of Raspirit Heron: Creating a virtual world where her paintings come alive in 3D animated paintings. The site shows her paintings transformed into castles, 3D objects, and animated paintings.
The "Castle of the Golden Apples" and the "Frog Castle" are RL paintings used to build the main exhibitions rooms.


The "Castle of the Golden Apples" is a unique exhibition concept using 8 levels, organized in 3 towers. An internal "Guided Visit" system guides you through the exhibition rooms. At each level you receive a notecard with information about the paintings, the sculptures and the painter.The upper floor gives you an amazing overview of the "Art Sanctuary" site. The "Skywalk", -- a Belgian invention to view the RL Grand Canyon" is the place to be for a nice chat about art or making new friends.
The large, more than 100 m long tree avenue, boarded with the "3D animated Apple trees, connects the "Castle of Golden Apples", "Meeting Place", the artist studios and the "Frog Castle".
The meeting place will be used as party place. A swing allows you to see the whole site from the sky, but don't tell us that it makes you mad or even crazy!
The studios of Raspirit Heron and WieBenik Beaumont can be visited and will give an overview of the "Art Sanctuary" products.
We hope you will explore and enjoy the experience of this evolving vision!
Welcome to the opening, June 10th!


Greetings,
Raspirit Heron and WieBenIk Beaumont

WieBenIk created a fantastic 'display' format for a series of my paintings; It also functions as a 'dynamic 'fresco' - being easily changed to a large format to fill a wall - it changes the painting when you want it to. And there are 32 in all to choose from.

WieBenIk's 3D trees


WieBenIk's wonderful 3D Apple Trees were introduced at the Muse Isle exhibition; 'planted' throughout the isle, and changing colours as they are touched, my painted tree is now truly magical!
