Amazing Art at 30/31 Event

We are about halfway through the current round of Kultivate Magazine’s 30/31 event.  There are some fantastic artists and designers featured, including this fabulous piece:

Aug 3031 Emma

This gorgeous watercolor is by Emmalena Damour.  Titled “Abstract Lilac Watercolor,” this amazing piece was created from a photograph of a lilac branch, and then manipulated in a graphics program to produce the end result.

Simply stunning. I love abstract art, and this piece is definitely going to hang on my wall. 🙂

Priced at $331L, you can get your copy here.  The 30/31 event only runs through August 7, so don’t wait to get yours!

August Round of 30/31 Event

The newest round of the Kultivate Magazine’s 30/31 event is now open.  Kultivate (formerly Windlight Magazine) has some amazing artists and designers participating in this round.

Aug 3031 Brie Dress

One of the items you can purchase is this amazing dress from Prism.   The Brie Urban Leather Dress comes with a color change HUD and the texturing on the dress is stunning.  It’s only $331L and you can pick it up here.  It comes with fitted options for Standard, Hourglass, Slink, TMP, and Maitreya bodies.  I paired it here with a great necklace from Meva and some strappy shoes from R.icielli.

Of course, there is also some fantastic art in this round.

Aug 3031 Journey Art

I love this piece – it speaks to contrasts.  The area looks isolated, with huge rocky mountains looming in the background, but then you have this lovely little area with its well-worn chairs and table, and an unfinished game just waiting for them to return.

I’ve spent many a long hour playing games with family and friends and this picture evokes all those lovely memories. 🙂

Should you desire a copy for your own home, you can find it here.  It is copy-only, but it is a fabulous piece that would add to any home.

Both pieces (the dress and the art) were created by Journey McLaglen.  I took a quick peek at her Flickr, and she is amazing.  After you finish drooling over her photostream, don’t forget to head over and pick up these amazing items – the round only lasts until August 7!

Windlight Magazine’s 30/31 Event

Windlight Magazine has created a new bimonthly event aimed at introducing people to 2D, 3D, and decorative arts in SL.

The inaugural round began at 12am SLT on March 31st (so that means it’s open NOW!).  There are some amazing artists in this round, including pieces from Johannes1977 Resident and Myth.

Johannes1997 Resident (the owner/creator of Windlight Magazine) has some of his own fabulous art available in this round.

3031 Johannes1977 Resident

The stylized watercolor paintings would make a wonderful addition to any art collection.  This round of 30/31 only last until April 7th, so make sure you don’t miss out on some of these fantastic pieces.

You can find the “Medieval Hideaway” at the Epic Chromatic Gallery, and the “Residez Schlossvom Balkonaus” at the Windlight Art Gallery.  Both pieces are available for only $331L.

Myth has two very different items – one is a piece of 3D art, and the other is a decor item.

Myth 3031

The Butterfly Frame 1 is a gorgeous piece of art with 3D butterflies that seem to leap out of the frame.  A steal at only $131L!  So pretty!

Cascade is a piece of wall art, made of interlocking shapes and lit candles.  Also priced at $131L, it would make a fabulous addition to your interior decor.

The Myth mainstore has a lot of great items, so take your time and wander a bit – you never know what you’ll stumble upon!

The inaugural round begins at 12am SLT on March 31st (so that means it’s open NOW!).  There are some amazing artists in this round, including pieces from Artemis’ Corner and BluPrintz.

Artemis’ Corner is a new-to-me creator, and I was impressed with her work.  She creates mesh statues (some of which I will be picking up for use in my sets!) and her piece for 30/31 is fantastic.

Titled ‘Lady in Gown,’ the statue features a woman draped in an elegant red gown.  You can pick up your own copy for $531L during the event.
AC Lady Mar 3031

When you visit the store, be sure to take a look around at her other fabulous items.

This round of 30/31 also features BluPrintz, another new-to-me designer. (I love finding new stores to shop!)

BluPrintz has created a set of art prints in three different designs.  In the ‘Elemental Splash’ series, there are three sets – Earth, Sky, and Heart.
BP Sky Mar 3031

This is the ‘Sky’ version of the prints.  The texture on these is simply amazing, as is the art.

You can check out other BluPrintz items at the mainstore.  While there, pick up your own Elemental Splash art for $131L.  Enjoy!!
