Now open! Best of The Citadel 2009
The *Best of The Citadel* exhibition is now open! Many thanks to all who joined us yesterday at the opening and concert, making it a great event! And again BIG thanks to Cristian Rexie from the Special One Gallery for the support and making it all possible:-)
A while ago Aelin, my dear co-admin of The Citadel had a wonderful idea: A virtual exhibition showing the 20 most outstanding works posted to our group 2009.
About the retrospective
With so many outstanding works published all year long to The Citadel, we eventually had the idea of selecting 20 of the very best works of 2009
and organize an exhibition in Second Life. Thanks to the great support of Cristian Rexie, Special One Gallery was selected to host the event. Notwithstanding the quality of the works presented, the exhibition is also original by mixing Real Life and Second Life art and artists to create an inspiring art experience!
About the artists and works selected
Given the quality of the works featured in The Citadel, the choice was difficult and Carlotta and I had to leave a lot of brilliant works and talented people aside. The artists we eventuallly retained come from all over the world, from Europe to Japan, from US to Brazil. All of them are regular contributors of The Citadel and have their unique style and vision.
