New Exhibition: Trisha Rose

And for our monthly gallery feature, another coup we are so proud of. Join us today, May 11th, at 8 PM SLT, to celebrate another oh-so-new display, all original and never-seen-before photos from an artist with a graceful touch that brings pure visual poetry  back from her explorations and adventures. We are talking about Trisha Rose, for an exhibition she called “A Taste of Erotic”.

We had our first lenghty chat with Trish at one of our openings, in fact at the last party at our previous incarnation. We connected right away and she has been so supportive of our work as gallery curators and of our sim as we just started. Beautiful Trish is an accomplished artist with a following on flickr, she is no stranger to have her photography on display, but somehow, she has not quite put ‘herself’ on display, not fully, not like you will see her today. We are always thrilled when we manage to offer something new to our visitors, and push an artist to live the gallery experience as such: an experience, a journey, motivated by an idea, a purpose. We deeply thank Trish for this, and we invite you to participate, as these pics will show her under a light you have not seen her before on a canvas, and may not see her again. In fact, let us encourage her to do it again!

Join us tonight, 8 PM SLT. The tunes will be provided by our ever sensual, – and incumbent artist for just a few hours so RUSH to see her show if you haven’t in the past 2 months! – DJ HaileyMarie Redrose. See you there!

Movie Party @ Gemini : His !

We are once more very happy to help promote on our sim a cinematic effort, and this time it will be from one creative duo who many of you know and always wanted them to make an appearance at Gemini. We are talking about Laura Richards & Severina, the minds (and legs!) behind the notorious Debauche dance troupe. And together, they are Wowtastic for their first full feature lenght movie, His ! The premiere will beging tomorrow Saturday April 27th at 8 AM SLT.

As keen as we are on photography displayed in world and believe in the importance to experience the art in a proper space and meet and celebrate the artist, we feel even more strongly about the -necessity- of movie premieres, especially when they cap such impressive undertakings. “His” is a movie with an XXX content but filmed with such a love for a stage-like setup and filmaking in its nuances (and for its subject, in a way!): the deliberate pacing makes for stunning images, in a very inspired photography that switches meaningfully between color and B&W (which we all know is a specialty of mrs. Richards). I’m exploring a little more of the movie in an interview published tomorrow on The Sexiest blog, but you’ll get an even better feel of it by coming to the premiere!

Remember, 8 AM SLT. Our dj for the event will be Geordie Richards, a natural choice for this big day.

New Exhibition: Ayela

We are happy to celebrate Easter with you with a delicious treat which made for a wonderful surprise also: today April 20th at 6 PM SLT (yes, a little earlier than our usual slot) we debut a new artist in an all new (and almost all nude)  exhibition : our featured artist just turned one year old in SL and it’s Ayela!

I have courted this delightful redhead for ages, and yet she is so young in SL! Fun and quite approachable as she is, this girl is one of those overthinking artists you are never sure they are going to believe their own hype juuust as long as it takes for them to take that spotlight they deserve. Sometimes I wish that organizing exhibitions with people (and people we know are appreciative of our work on the sim) were as easy as simply telling them “We love your pictures, let’s do this!”. An exhibition is part of a personal journey and you need the right circumstances and timing. The timing was finally right, and this exhibition spurred her to put her crystaline talent to good use on a  project she meticolously planned (…for the most part!), which ended up involving 22 models for 22 previously unseen photos.

We are thrilled to see this sort of effort and inspiration!

And we’ll be delighted if you join us tonight, 6 PM SLT. A little earlier, for a party a little different than usual : our dj for the night will be a personal friend of Ayela (and of many of you, because, oh she’s friendly!) and certainly a big motivator and inspirational figure to many , especially if with a pervy mind and/or with a cute butt. Sparklebottom Lasertits ! Join us for a Happy Easter!

New Gallery: Stacia’s Stories!

Today, our announcement has something a little different from usual! We do have a new exhibition on the sim, but it is more than that. It is a longer term project, and it is something we have flirted with for a long time. Join us today March 30th on the sim at 7 PM , for a great time listening to one of the djs with the most dynamic mixes on the scene, the wonderful Zoey Winsmore. The occasion? The inauguration of Stacia Reinoir‘s newest gallery.

And when I say ‘gallery’, I am not synecdoching (it is a word now), using the name of a building to indicate the exhibition hosted in there. Nu-uh, not this time! I am actually meaning the building itself too, as our sim is going to be the home for Stacia’s Stories, the gallery home for Stacia Reinoir’s works and artistic vision.

We hosted exhibitions by stars of flickr who rack up more faves and views than she does, but Stacia’s exhibition drew the most intriguing comments (I swear, we didn’t pay those people to leave that kind of comment!). Amongst parallels with giants of art and photography I feel frankly shy quoting, but that picked up on beautiful qualities intrinsic to her composition, the comment I hold dearest came from an acclaimed SL photographer who just opened an exhibitionist at an history SL gallery a few days ago. She called it ‘a feminist nudity, affirmation of strenght’, which is the perfect sum of her greatest appeal.

We also got lovely reviews from a  few visitors who got a sneak peek of the new gallery building, but again, I wouldn’t want to praise our own choices here! We do think that it complements well color and light choices of several of her studio pictures, without overwhelming those who take a more naturalistic (and not just naturist :p) direction. We believe it plays to the strenghts of the hopeless camera flirt that she is. But of course we want your opinion! So join us at 7 PM SLT with Stacia herself, to dance to Zoey’s music and have fun !

Stacia’s is not the only project of this nature set to happen in the next months, and we already in fact announced one in front of one of our biggest attendances a week ago, involving Rachel Avro. We enjoy so much building new venues and trying to imagine different ways to display art, study different approaches to the concept of presenting images in SL, both linked to specific artistists and to collective works.  If you have ideas for a collaboration, do contact Katina Cazalet and/or Vicki Concertina. Do it at the party tonight!

Movie Party @ Gemini : Wicked Summer !

We love movie parties! We can’t have enough of them – seriously, if you do a video in SL, we know how big of a task that is, throw a party for it ! We can help , so contact us! Anyway, we do, and we are thrilled that our good friend Isabelle Cheviot of Dog Star Productions asked us to help with a celebration of her latest directorial effort – Wicked Summer !

I couldn’t talk about this movie without mentioning the impressive cast! Starting with the leads: the gorgeous Ayela, who we all appreciate as photographer and model, has quite the star role in this, matching blow for blow – pun intended – a veteran (I did not just call you old, Isa!) like Isabelle Cheviot.

The movie is a LOT of fun. So many different sex scenes for every taste, and in many different combinations, including some of the best group scenes I ever had the pleasure to see.  Over 30 people have on screen time in this, and they got their share of the titillating beauties on the poster. So a big thank you to Larry Vinaver, Ivan Yerkinov, Heathpantyboy Miggins, Daxie, Britney Lexenstar, Maximus Morningstar, Talisker Braveheart, Arcangelo Hellman, Isla Grace, Holly Manx, Celith Wendt, KayDee Sommers, Salathiell, Monique LeFry, Tessa Hale, Jessika, Della Morta, Ali Fox, Curty Dovgal, Stephanie, Tammy Jones-Pinedo, Annie, Saulo, liddlebit, Carter Holloway, Mark Steiner, Logan O’Leary, Nuur, Cykes, Petrova.

We party celebrating Isa,Ayela and the full cast today at 7 AM SLT , with our friend Zuby Gloom-Redrose as dj.

New Exhibition: HaileyMarie Redrose

New month, new artist at Gemini. And what a special one for us! Today March 9th, join us at 8 PM SLT for a party celebrating the photography of a name familiar to those who have been following us: it’s HaileyMarie Redrose!

Who, the DJ? Oh yes. Hailey has been our go-to maestro since a long time now, but she is an individual with mercurial talents. A RL videographer who dabbled in the discipline in SL as well, Hailey is responsible for the design of The Minx Den, an unforgettable speck of the 80s in our sim. The eclectic and colourful retrowave style is an undeniable part of her aesthetics, but she has an eye for a classic sensuality as well. What made us decide to do an exhibition with her now, is that she has been doing a series of pictures called Boudoir Dreams, making ample use of our sim. The least we could do with such a lovely display of different corners of Gemini was…having an exhibition at Gemini, of course! But you will see much more than that tonight, when several exclusive photos will be unveiled. They are some of the most impressive original work done for the gallery since its inception, and truly make the best example about her skills as photo editor, originality as artist, and are quite frankly just so sexy and fun!

Enough building this up, you gotta come over and see it all. Please, join our ranks at 8 PM SLT  today, with Zuby Gloom-Redrose as DJ.

Movie Party @ Gemini : Tattoo The Pink Rose!

Right between Valentine’s day and International Women’s Day, we have an all-girls film to introduce to the world (and do it at 7:15 PM SLT today February 22nd) ! It’s the highly imaginative, visually stylish and unsurprisingly surprising new movie from Mitzy Broadway. It’s called Tattoo the Pink Rose!

I have as usually written a little more in detail about the artistic aspects of  the movie in the Sexiest Pornstars blog – the movie is very much XXX rated, in case you are not familiar with Mitzy  – and therefore you missed our previous parties we proudly threw for her.

That would mean that today is a good chance for you to drop by and get aquainted with one of the most intriguing and unique personalities on the grid: a lot about ‘porn movies’ in real life bears the stigma of something made simply for a very narrow purpose. Nothing could be any more distant from the truth when it comes to Mitzy’s artistic creations: they obviously present exciting and so very explicit scenes , but they are truly the product of a dedicated and passionate cinematographer with a vision and that creates truly original scenarios.

Come and experience the movie magic, and all the glam and entertainment that the world of ‘showbiz’ brings, for a time of celebration, chats and fun. And of course, MUSIC! With Zuby and Hailey‘s tunes. The party will start after the movie screening, which will begin at 7:15 PM SLT today. Do not miss this!

New Exhibition: Cheryl Reddevil

February might be the shortest month, but it’s especially crowded with events here at Gemini! Tonight it’s time to have an all new artist at the gallery, debuting with a party today Saturday 16th at 8 PM SLT. It’s the firecracker we call Cheryl Reddevil !

My fascination with Cheryl Reddevil is no secret! She has a way to flirt with the camera that is uncanny. Shameless and yet so whimsical, she is one of those photographers who instantly make you think “I want to meet this person”. She’s just so enticing. She provided in record time a series of never seen before pictures who truly express the essence of her eroticism and that we’ll be so proud to unveil at the opening. We want to have this time memorable for her – she truly deserves it. She is pretty good at making memories herself, mind you. I remember her at the Fellatio Friday party we organized (she is one of the best in the discipline…photographically speaking of course!) and oh she livened it up quite a bit! But I digress…

We hope to see you all tonight at 8 PM ! HaileyMarie Redrose will start the dances, and we’ll all have fun together. We. All. Do not miss it!

Double Trouble: Rachel Avro @ Gemini round II !

Today, February 8th, our regular party schedule (8 PM SLT featuring Zuby and Hailey‘s music) also gives us a chance to celebrate something a little special someone who did something VERY special for us! Enough with the something something, let’s name names: we are talking about round II of Rachel Avro‘s exhibition.

A whole new building’s worth of pictures from Rache will be unveiled, and in a singularity in our exhibition schedule, she takes over both our galleries! For a week at least, as next Saturday we’ll unveil a new artist phasing out the first round of Rachel’s photos. As you know, we like to have at all times 2 artists on the sim, providing extra variety and a bit of osmotic reciprocal exposure , but we were looking forward to display Rachel’s monumental effort in all its glory, also due to the organic nature of it, the entirety of the photos being black and white.

Over 40 different models appear in this display, the majority of which consisting of original photos made expressely for this gallery. We are beyond thrilled, and we hope you will come and join us to celebrate Rache’s talent. She also will have some special announcement to make…but so do we, so, we’ll see you there! Remember , 8 PM SLT, all new exhibition and photos !

 

New Exhibition: Rachel Avro

We have already welcomed the new year at Gemini with two of our weekly parties – if you have not visited, you are missing out! – but today it is the time to officially kick off the 2019 program with one of our biggest exhibitions to this day. Today at 8 PM SLT we debut with an exquisite display from someone who truly had a great impact on the adult arts world. Rachel Avro!

As a model and actress in SL, Rachel has always had a taste for the classic, timeless look Hollywood was built on in its golden age – everyone agrees on the beauty and class her avatar exhudes. This sensitivity translated so well in her search for identity as an artist, and it is not a coincidence that some of the most memorable and successful of her countless endeavours in the arts are projects that bring that sort of quality. This had to be a black&white exhibition!

True to her desire and to her natural inclinations she involved as many individuals as possible, planning ahead and working hard during the holidays to make this event on par with its ambition. With over a dozen different models in previously unseen photos, this gallery is a tribute to female beauty that shows how far along she came as photographer. We are truly proud to have on display at the gallery what is a labour of love, in more ways that one, since Rachel is living one of the happiest phases of her Second life and at every step she wants to remind us that  such an undertaking would have not been possible without the support and love of her quick handed partner Stacey.

Join us at 8 PM SLT for this event, which will have also a phase 2 in the near future that is very much integral to the project. Do not miss it! DJ HaileyMarie Redrose will provide the music.
