Art Sanctuary Update - Sept. 19 - 07


>>> KrystalEpic & Art Sanctuary Poetry and Short Story Competition
>> ------ Deadline* ------ <<

>>> Poems and Stories presented visually at Art Sanctuary

>>> VOTE 'Best Poem' - 'Best Story'

>>> Prize Giving Events

>>> Raspirit Heron's Paintings at Angel Dorei Museum

>>> Muse Isle Gallery and Art Walk

>>> Upcoming Exhibition at S & S Galleries


To celebrate the Grand Opening of the Art Sanctuary (see the previous story) Raspirit Heron and WieBenIk Beaumont announced a Poem and Story Contest, organized together with Enniv Zarf of Krystal Epic.
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).

All authors select a spot to place their poem at the Art Sanctuary. Raspirit Heron and WieBenIk Beaumont will create a poster giving a notecard with your poem to the visitor. Touch the poster and the poem will be read. The authors are also invited to use voice chat to read their poem during the prize giving event.

All Sl-Newspaper readers are invited to vote ..

The Art Sanctuary invites all SL-Newspaper readers to vote for the best poem or story. An overview of the poems can be found at the contest website (http://ke-asPoetryAndShortStoryCompet.blogspot.com/).
To vote you send a mail or a notecard to Raspirit Heron and mention the winners (the name of the poem and the author). Your vote is as important as each jury vote, you’re the jury!

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
