August 1st was opening day for the *one and only* Edwardston Station Gallery. Yes, there’s no other gallery by that name anymore. Actually, never was, and always remember that blog readers. So let’s just take a brief tour of the small gallery, shall we?
I won’t relate the whole story of how I found this gallery, or how I met and then befriended the owner, Zimmy Zuhal. But it’s a fascinating mall area, with lots of tunnels and secret passages. I can think of two right off that are in direct conjunction with my gallery, one I’ll get to in a moment.
The below I feel gives the best possible view of the gallery, from the top of the ramp leading inward. The entrance is quite small but the interior is perhaps 20 meters long and 10 meters wide, approximately. Not too bad for the price for sure, and seemingly perfect for what I needed a SL gallery to be at this point in time.
There are two notecards where I provide information about the gallery, one at the front giving general information, and then this one you produce when touching the back sign of the gallery giving more detail about the featured art, which is all about what I call the “10×10”. I’ll just give the text of the notecards in full to end this particular post.
Currently in the gallery there are 23 collages of the approximately 100 collage “10×10” hung on the various walls. Also offered for sale are these boxed sets of collages, one for each individual series of the 10×10 that I explain in more detail in the 10×10 related notecard.
Then a view around the only corner of the gallery. Small, as I said, but not too much so I don’t feel. Just right.
But the “gallery” really doesn’t end there and continues through the phantom wall I constructed here into one of those tunnels I mentioned. Passing between the two corner collages here…
…brings us quickly into the tunnel itself. That wooden floor below the entrance ramp is also technically part of the gallery, although I have few prims left to do anything with it, and also I would assume there’s really no traffic here anyway. But the possibility remains of opening the gallery wall at this point to give a little more space if/when needed.
A look down toward the south end of the tunnel. I’ll save a tour of the tunnels, though, for a future post. It’s worth a study in itself.
GALLERY NOTECARD RE GENERAL INFO AT THE ENTRANCE
Edwardston Station Gallery was established in August 2008 by me, Baker Bloch. The gallery is presently featuring the various collage series from my long term project somewhat mysteriously termed the “10×10”.
Click on the sign in the back of the gallery for more about the “10×10,” including information concerning current showings.
Photography by Edna Blinker (rl: wife) and Klutzy Kamper (rl :co-worker) will also be on display in the gallery at some point.
IM me if you wish about my larger but private, non-commercial gallery in Gliese. Included in this private colllection are some world art, a permanent exhibit of the Hidalgo Collage Series, several rooms devoted to the photography of Edna and Klutzy, and the original Edwardston Station.
Thanks for your interest,
Owner, Edwardston Station Gallery
