The legendary Starax, a famous SL sculptor....
...and Lightwaves.... the work is on show in another brilliant show, curated by White Lebed at Angelgate, at their new location... here
"On Thursday, September 10, 2009 at 3:30 pm PDT/SLT, AngelGate Gallery launches the first in planned series of events entitled, "The History of SL Arts". At the inaugural event AngelGate proudly presents "Starax: The Legend". This exhibition features one hundred and forty sculptures of Starax and Light Wave, from the collection of second life resident Jeri Rahja. The series and this first event was organized by White Lebed, AngelGate Gallery Curator, working in conjunction with Ms Rahja. As part of the event, there will be an auction for several pieces with a portion of the proceeds raised going to support the gallery.
We hope you can join us for the event. If not, the sculpture will remain on display for one full week allowing second life residents to view the remarkable work of the legendary artist."
...and, it's worth a visit..... whether you like the very classic style of the work or not, the craftsmanship has to be admired. They are often talked about, and, its worth seeing what the fuss is all about.
...and....because the sponsors don't always get enough mention in these things, I'm including here the blurb from Angelgate.....
