June Featured Artist @ Harmony Cafe

TEXANNA SCHUMANN

For the month of June, SL Artist & Photographer Texanna Schumann created a special exhibit of SL Photography for Harmony Cafe. When we asked her to show her photos in the Cafe, she was inspired by thoughts of June Brides, and with her friends as models she created a beautiful collection of Bridal Photography. An elegant exhibit that pleasantly contrasts the cozy atmosphere of Harmony Cafe. Be sure to stop in and see it, from now until the end of June.

INDIA GARRIGUS

For the month of June, Tricia Aferdita Gallery features the work of artist India Garrigus. Taking photos since she was big enough to hold a camera, India’s collection features an ecclectic assortment; from cats and butterflies, to clocks, dichroic glass and more… some her own craft work. She then takes her unique way of looking at things a step further and transforms them digitally, making fantastic, colorful and sometimes psychadelic works of amazing texture and vision. On exhibit and for sale in Second Life through the end of June.

JOFUS WRIGGLESWORTH

Joseph Perkins (aka: Jofus Wrigglesworth) has been painting seriously for about 5 years. He started in 2003 when we entered the ArT Institute of Philadelphia, in Pennsylvania.
His main focus is in abstract organics as well as abstract expressionism. Some of his major influences from the list of greats are Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, and Piet Mondrian. Much of his work is also influenced by his observation of nature, ranging from a universal to a molecular level of appreciation.

Over the past few years, Joseph has experimented with acrylic, oil, latex, and alkyd paints, as well as numerous approaches to creating different textures. A freeflowing application of these materials gives much of his work the energy found in action painting, with less of an emphasis on the physical actions of the artist and more focus on the natural reactions of the materials. (bio written by Joseph Perkins)

Join Tricia Aferdita Gallery in welcoming Joseph to Second Life and his very first exhibition in SL. The paintings selected for this show represent some of his most colorful, texture filled and expressive works. I am please to have him at my gallery and in Cetus Gallery District.

Alternative Classix w/ DJ Tarsis Korobase

Every Friday night at Harmony Cafe, we welcome DJ Tarsis, who brings to Second Life the live version of his alternative rock podcast, Alternative Classix. Tarsis spins an eclectic mix of classic alternative rock from the 80’s and early 90’s, featuring groups like The Cure, Depeche Mode, Visage, This Mortal Coil, The Misfits, The Dead Kennedys…. need I go on?

If you’re like me, you probably didn’t even realize how much alternative rock you liked back then, or maybe you don’t want to admit you’re old enough to remember listening to music back, as Tarsis puts it, “When you didn’t have to worry about the lead paint on your Dukes of Hazzard lunch pail.”

Either way, the party is fun, the music is great and the people who join us each Friday night are a smart, funny bunch of art & music lovers, many of whom I am pleased to call my friends. We’ve even thrown together an 80’s Trivia game where you could win 500L if you’re not too embarassed to admit you knew the answer!

Look for Tarsis and the gang at Harmony Cafe every Friday Night in Cetus, Second Life!

Featured Artist @ Harmony Cafe

Eidolon Dreamscape

Starting Friday, March 28th Harmony Cafe welcomes Eidolon Dreamscape to Harmony Cafe. His real life photographic works will be featured in the cafe for the next month. Of Eidolon’s considerable collection of photography, I chose the peices we featured in Harmony this month for their color, the bright lights and the general high energy feel of them.

I thought the colorful photographs went well in the warm red and black interior of the cafe, and positive feedback was recieved all night long as we partied with DJ Tarsis and celebrated Eidolon’s opening.

This is Eidolon’s first show in Cetus Gallery District and the first time I have featured one specific photographer in the Cafe. The party was a great time and, I think, an auspicious start to a new feature of the Cafe. Welcome Eidolon to Cetus and stop by the Cafe to check out his work!

Harmony Cafe

HARMONY CAFE
CETUS GALLERY DISTRICT

A popular hangout (if I do say so myself) in the Cetus Gallery District is the Harmony Cafe, located on the Cetus River Walk.

Opened in October 2007, the cafe has become a favorite place to sit and chat in front of the fire, relax at a table and sip espresso or hot cocoa with a friend or spend an evening dancing to live performers and DJs.

Harmony has hosted live music performances from fantastic performers like Louis/Luigi Volare, CraigLyons Writer, Noma Falta, Nance Brody and more.

Every Friday night, join Harmony and DJ Tarsis Korobase for Alternative Classix Live. Tarsis hosts an alternative rock podcast (it can be found at http://www.alternativeclassix.com) and on Fridays he brings it to SL live via the Harmony Cafe. Stop in and dance to alternative rock hits from the 80’s and early 90’s!

Not forgetting that the Cafe is in an art district, I have incorporated artwork into the decor. It started as an eclectic mix of work from artists around SL, but I am currently featuring the art work of Schmonson Dalglish there (along with the work displayed at Tricia Aferdita Gallery). Next month, I will feature Cetus’ own Em Larsson, owner of Gallery M and a few of her fabulous photos.

While you’re in Second Life, take the time to stop in and have a cup of coffee or stay for a while and party with us. Our gatherings are filled with fun and laughter!
