The Galleries of Poseidon’s Abyss

gallery1

“The enemy’s superior power can no longer be held off. The city struggles to save its arts aboard the fleet of living galleons. To protect its valued paintings, music, literature, and all the company of its theater, the ships must sail on the hour if their culture is to survive. But 40 fathoms beneath those waves, Poseidon spies the underbellies of the ships, and readies his own advance for the bounty.” – Haveit Neox, the designer and builder of Poseidon’s Abyss

The Arts & Entertainment sim, Poseidon’s Abyss, is a treasure trove of fantasy art set into a sim-wide installation by Haveit Neox. Within the living story of attempting to save what is most precious — beauty, art and culture — the visitors can find four different art galleries. Two of these are on the surface, two more in the depths of Abyss.

In these galleries there are paintings of fantasy art work from 26 different Second Life fantasy artists that have their work displayed in Flickr. Each of the artists was contacted for permission and only the art that we received the permission for is displayed in the Faire.

The galleries display the art of Alisa Perne, Alisaundra Andel, Caitlin Tobias, Carthalis Rossini, Catchafire Shilova, Cyrus Knight, DevinVaughn, Duchess Flux, Filomena Quinnell, Freyja Nemeth, GiaNikai Juliesse, Hephaesteon, Irina Strazytski, Jikiro Silverblade, Kimbra IridescentKynne Llewellyn, Mikali Giovinazzo, Rainbow Mubble, Roxi Firanelli, Sorchiee, Spyder Silverfall, Sunny George, Tamarind Silverfall, Twerk Caboodle, Ursula Floresby and Zeke Jestyr. Fantasy Faire would like to thank all of them once more: every painting makes the treasures Poseidon vies for more valuable, every piece of art adds to the spirit of beauty to be cherished and saved.

Go join the preservation of beauty and life, go explore Poseidon’s Abyss!

If you have visited the Palace of Tears while hunting, you might have noticed that the Emperor’s palace is fittingly decorated with amazing fantasy art pieces.

These pieces are all from various fantasy groups in Flickr, chosen to represent the multitude of fantastic ways the people of Second Life see, perceive and live fantasy in our shared virtual world.

Each artist has been contacted beforehand and has given their permission to use their art in the Palace. If you edit-inspect a painting you can find out the picture’s title, the artist’s name and the flickr-address. Almost thirty fantasy artists have their art on the walls of the Palace.

The Art Gallery stays available to delight you as long as The Palace of Tears does, until May 18th. While you are hunting within the Palace, take a moment or two to pause and admire the art on the walls, to appreciate the ways how we all can be exactly what we wish in here: dream, be, and share it with others.
