"CITY WINDOWS" Photography Exhibit by Walt Ireton, OZLAND ART GALLERY - October 2014

Walt Ireton has been a professional photographer since 2005 and lives in Germany.  His passion is nature, street, travel and macro photography.  The photographs for his "City Windows" exhibit were shot on the streets of Enschede, Netherlands.  Shop windows have a special kind of virtual reality for Walt.  Professionally designed eye catchers, that use any kind of psychological tricks to attract your attention – but most of us just walk by without noticing.

Walt is exclusively exhibiting in Second Life. This virtual reality with its avatars is a perfect place to present this show, because the mannequins in these photos almost take the place of universal avatars, coming to life by interacting with the real world in the reflection of the window in front of them. The parallels between their artificial reality and second life are amazingly obvious.

Come visit the OZLAND ART GALLERY the month of October and view these wonderful pieces of art.  Make sure you take home the FREE Gift that Walt has made specially for visitors to the exhibit.

Sonoma Sandalwood's "Fencing in Beauty" Macro Photography - April 2014

Ms. Sandalwood works out of her private home studio in Texas. She is currently pursuing her MFA in Fine Art Photography. She is inspired by the abstract works of photographers Minor White and Eliot Porter, as well as the works of Imogen Cunningham, Edward Weston, and others. She tends to look for the small points of beauty hidden all around us.

As a fine art photographer, her current focus is macro abstract photography - or capturing those small points of beauty most never notice. From the wonderful patterns in nature, to a crack in the wall which unexpectedly turns out to be more than what meets the eye, beautiful abstracts are everywhere.

Visit Sonoma's Macro Fence Photography exhibit at the OZLAND Art Gallery for the month of April and make sure you take home the free gift that she has for guests who visit this exhibit!

Van Caerndow's "World Traveler" Paintings on Glass at the OZLAND Art Gallery - March 2014

"I paint on glass as a window to the worlds in my imagination"

Van Caerndow has developed a style of painting on glass using a French water based craft paint called Pebeo, which is designed for glass and ceramics. After painting is done he bakes the glass for 20 minutes at 325 degrees. From these finished works he signs, and numbers Giclee prints at up to 400% of the actual size.

In Second Life, Van is best known as a painter of portraits of fellow avatars on glass and he brings scanned versions in world. In rl Van is Phil Strang and as much as he loves doing SL portraits and SL scenes, he does so much more. Still lifes, westerns, sports, landscapes and real life portraits as well. In this exhibit you will see a selection of Van's travels in SL and in RL.

Visit the OZLAND Art Gallery for the month of March and make sure you take home the free gift that Van has made specially for guests who visit this exhibit!
