New Exhibition: Carter Holloway

On this last week of summer (at least that’s what the calendar says!) we have another very special display for you. Our new artist for September brings us a whole gallery’s worth of original, exclusive photos part of a concept exhibition. Come to Gemini tonight September 19th at 8 PM SLT and witness the light and the darkness in Carter Holloway‘s art!

Ever since his debut in the world of pornography, involving mostly ovine co-stars, Carter has built a reputation based on the complete lack of morals, an ego inversely proportional to his penis size (the camera adds about 10 pounds and 6 inches) and most notably his questionable personal hygiene, something that might explain ( but not justify) the fact that most people appearing in his pictures have to undergo deep sedation during the procedure . We could go on for hours narrating stories about Carter, especially those already featured on Dateline, but we’d rather  keep going at it during the party later tonight, so you really don’t wanna miss this one!

Okay, in all  seriousness: Carter is one of the funniest people you can have the pleasure to work with, with his constant taste for banter and unique brand of self-deprecating humor that just begs to be fed, knowing fully well that since his positive qualities are so many, it’s less boring to make up some rather silly bad ones. We are truly honored that he chose to bring his work to the gallery committing to a full display of originals, which he started creating based on the concept of duality: about half of the artwork he created shows his good, ‘light’ side – as good as this naughty boy can be at least! – while in the other half he gets to show an edge in several unique ways, through some rather dark imagery.

Join us tonight at 8 PM SLT: meeting artists at these opening is always fun, but I suspect this is gonna be quite a ball. The roast, I mean, the exhibition will be dj’d by our lovely Zuby Gloom. Don’t miss out!

New Exhibition: Katya Ansia

After our very busy July, we are taking a break in August…NOT, of course. We have a new artist debuting with an exhibition, and her work is surely worth it . We are proud to announce for today August 15th at 8 PM SLT the opening of a gallery show featuring Katya Ansia.

When we talked to Katya in late Spring for a solo exhibition – she previously only contributed with her exquisite photography to collective efforts – she came up with an idea ridiculously simple and yet quite stimulating. We have been always happy to blend new exclusive creations with a showcase of their established body of work but, as you know, numerous photographers feel compelled to put on the walls exclusively original photos. It has everything to do with inspiration and an organic artistic vision, and sometimes the love for a challenge. Or we’ve just been extra lucky, who knows! The drawback -for them- is that it is time consuming, which forces the artist to go ‘silent’ on Flickr for weeks sometimes. Katya’s intuition was brilliant: she has been working for this gallery all along these past weeks, but you did not notice it. She created photos with the exhibition in mind, published some…but what you have seen on Flickr, was just the beginning of several photosets. Ta-dah!

Join us today at 8 PM SLT to experience what you saw just a hint of on flickr: photos you may already have seen and fave’d reach a whole new dimension of sensuality and eroticism with the sets they were were always meant to be part of. Our Sexiest® DJ-ane Zuby Gloom will bring her tunes for another gallery show that hopefully will stimulate you in more ways than one.

As for now, knocking on wood, we have a full line-up of artists for the year, but we have several other art-related initiatives – and things in SL keep being very fluid, so we are always open to your suggestions and art related proposals. Well, other type of proposals too, wink wink?

Movie Party @ Gemini : Quarantena

It’s been a while since we had the pleasure to host one of these: a Movie Premiere party! Today, Saturday July 18th, join us around 7:15 PM SLT for the first ever screening of the awesome new movie by Mitzy Broadway, “Quarantena”. A Filthy Penny Production (gee Mitzy and Max, wash that penny sometime), this adult movie shot in SL and featuring the professional voicework from Rysan Fall (and several very professional sounding assorted moans) is set in the testing times we live in: Quarantena in italian means exactly what you’d expect, “quarantine”, and it deals with relationships – of the physical kind you’d expect in a p0rn, but not just! – with the confinement dictated by the sanitary rules.

 

Vicki and I were especially thrilled to get a full tour of the African wilderness for it. In fact, we didn’t get to see much past our bungalow, but we made our sojourn as wild as possible. DJ Zuby will begin playing her tunes at 8 PM as usual, but we’ll start welcoming guests at 7:15 PM for the premiere – the movie is 40 minutes long and we want to give you the chance to follow it.

 

Don’t worry about the rules: at the Quarantena Resort every intimate contact is safe and in fact recommended!

New Exhibition: Isla Grace

July will be a month hot in every way here at Gemini! It is shaping up to be one of the busiest months in the life of the sim, with many exciting events. Speaking of shapely and exciting, join us today July 11th at 9 PM (yes that is one hour later than usual) for the opening show of our newest artist Isla Grace.

Our first exposure to Isla’s gorgeous photography was years ago on SL Unplugged, the premiere quarterly adult magazine on the grid. Isla has been a driving force behind it for a long time (check the July issue!), and her contributions are not the kind you easily forget even at first sight. Displaying with no prudery well made sexual photos has always been a mission statement for our choices as gallery curators, and Isla shows the carnality of the act with unique…grace if you will.  Isla is charming in every way – as the many visitors of her successful sim Mature Doggers will tell you- and excels at capturing the beauty of a natural woman, through her words in the magazine articles, her craft as shapemaker and of course her pictures. This exhibition will feature different sides of her photography through work that is either all new and exclusive to Gemini – including several of her raunchiest work with some rather hot guys – or has been picked for display at Isla’s own art gallery. You will find some of her more stylized work she experimented there, along with the patented cheeky pin-ups that make her so relatable and fun.

Join us tonight at 9 PM (remember, that’s one hour later than our norm!) for a fun time with Isla herself, the sexy, curvy and multitalented DJ Zuby Gloom, and prepare for much more to come this month!

 

New Exhibition: Salathiell

What’s in store for the month of June? A new exhibition of course! And of the kind that thrills us  the most: someone debuting and that honored our gallery with a show of all-new, never seen before photos, made especially for the occasion. Let’s gather tonight June 20th at 8 PM SLT for a show by Salathiell!

Sala has been a regular partygoer at our Gemini events and others from the Sexiest group. In our book she always stood out for her look and physicality, which she tends to underplay – never as much as she underplays her talents though! Sala has a very humble attitude, and does not carry herself like the artist we knew she is. We had chances before to admire her aptitude for posemaking, just to name one of her skills: in a way SL limits her, considering that she has an extensive experience with tools useful in digital art that can’t be ported directly due to SL’s way to handle (or not handle at all!) industry standards.  We ended up getting in touch with many more of her talents and quirks – such as the role shadows play! – these past months once she agreed to put herself on display. In this exhibition, with a couple dozen original shots, she shows her range with a variety of approaches, angles and formats – size matters in every position, I tell you! – featuring different models and herself in many sexual, sexy and just plain fun scenes, most of them taken at our own sim.

We’re so happy and flattered to preset another fully original show. We consider it a dedication to the community and hope to continue to present artwork to you in the best possible way, enriching the enjoyment you’d have simply scrolling through shots on Flickr. Join us tonight at 8 PM with Sala, her models and naturally the DJ with the widest smile on the scene, the lovely Zuby Gloom, and let’s have a great party together!

New Exhibition: Cody Takeda

Another thrilling artist joins our lineup this week! We’re so elated about it, the title says it all: don’t miss Saturday May 9th at 8 PM SLT the opening of “Heaven on High”, a new exhibition by Cody Takeda!

The Artist Formerly Known as Aethmorot…nah, not really, he’s always been Cody to everyone, but point is, he’s got a fancy new name from the Labs, he’s expanded on his already jaw-dropping looks, and it was just about time we’d throw an exhibition for him, celebrating one of the most luscious photographers on the scene. A master of colourful atmospheres and sensual monochrome, soft glow and expressive contrast alike, Cody has been working with a broad range of other Flickrites of all genders and genres, and in this new exhibition he’s gonna spring up some surprises alongside some familiar faces (and bodies!) who have been inspiring him throughout his career.

It’s gonna be a wonderful show if we may say so ourselves – gorgeous pictures, and a real parterre de rois of an audience, with DJ Zuby Gloom providing the music: you have to join the show, at 8 PM SLT. Don’t miss out!

New Exhibition: Evangeline Ling

Last time around, I mentioned the unique nature of the current exhibition, Space Opera. Today Saturday April 18th, here we present you another epic tail, I mean tale, but also tail, actually: it is the tale of the Bellisseria squirrel and our photographer for this month Evangeline Ling! Get ready for the party at 8 PM SLT for a rather nutty experience!

These days spending time at home is definitely en vogue, and SL-wise, there’s no place to have a home like Bellisseria! Eva is a happy resident of the newest continent from Linden Labs, the one with all the fancy homes every Premium user wants. Bellisseria is a vibrant community now, not just somewhere with little boxes made out of ticky tacky to log in safely at. It is a gorgeous location with so many proud inhabitants and so much to do and going on!  You can learn a bit more through this link, but you will find that link amongst a few other extra features today at the exhibition – Eva will tour you through the various shooting location with a fun write-up going with each pic. We credit Eva with the idea of this set in full : she pointed out how the opening of the gallery would coincide with the celebration for the first anniversary of the continent, and had the crazy idea to shoot a whimsical adventure with a very simple premise and hilarious consequences as she shows off the beauty of Bellisseria.

So, join us tonight at 8 PM SLT! Both the photographer and the lead model will be there, and our ever wonderful dj Zuby Gloom will provide the tunes for another fun party, and probably one of the craziest and most elaborate exhibitions to set up to date. Boy, the next one will be easier, right?

 

New Exhibition: ‘Space Opera’ by Morgan Talbot!

It’s time for a fun and sexy social gathering – the kind that seems possible now only on Second Life! We’re going to jump into the future tonight at 8 PM SLT, and I can already see it: we’ll be partying with Zuby’s tunes to celebrate the newest exhibition at our sim! The man of the moment? Morgan Talbot, together with the whole colorful crew  of his Space Opera. If that does not ring a bell, stat by taking a look on the album with the previous parts of the saga, here! And check this out…!

I think this epic poster here sums up better than anything how exciting the prospect of this opening is to us! After nearly 3 years of continued activity, the creativity of different artists still provides new challenges for us on how to adequately present the material in-world. Morgan’ Space Opera is truly an epic space saga, a tale about space witches intended for adults, that will tickle your inner nerd with an involving story while titillates your senses with quality eye-candy. In the gallery, we needed to present each panel of the story as the glorious, perfectly composed and dynamic artwork it is, but also with a fixed order , and showing also the rich narrative that comes with it. Given the non-linear layout of the building, we had to reinvent the way the space is normally used. We also always wanted to make use of the possibilities the SL interactive environment offers, so the storyline can be viewed in world with each chapter close by the single tableau, but also as pop-up to check out in your browser clicking the image.

So, remember : today at 8 PM SLT, join us to celebrate the closing of a trilogy (not every space opera can do that right these days!) with new and exciting events to be announced! We don’t set a particular dress code for the events as we know that a lot of you are into sci-fi  cosplay, others love to don the gown and tux for formal events, and we have plenty casual visitors as well who did not plan either. It’ll be fun to see what you come up with, rest assured that you won’t look out of place any way you choose to go with this! See you at 8.

New ExhibitionS: Anne & Jaquelyne

Here’s some updates from the sim on how this 2020 has been so far!

We have been enjoying our Friday parties, now often going in excess of one hour overtime – Zuby is having such a blast with her music that it just happens, and we are glad to have always new visitors and old friends coming over and staying for a nightcap. Just yesterday we had a wonderful Valentine’s Day party with some swing that got everyone’s feet tapping. Amongst other tapping I will be discreet about.

After an exceptional 2019, we gave our regular gallery rotation a break. resting during the holidays, and as planned we begin with a fresh start, featuring two artists closely related to one another – in fact they have been partners for years, and they truly blossomed into their artistic endeavours relatively recently – with amazing results. So their exhibitions open simultaneously, today at 8 PM SLT. We are talking about Jaquelyne Desmoulins and her partner Anne.

I instantly fell in love with Anne Quan’s pictures. She may appear the quiet one of the duo, but when you compare her pics and Jaqui’s in one of the not infrequent times when they collaborate on a project shooting the same subject, you’d think she’s the -really- naughty one! Her “Diary of a cuckquean” and “The good wife’s lessons” series have some of my favourite erotica shots of the past year, going both for classic shots with a vintage allure, and clever, explicit yet subtly arousing twists. And, she created in such a short time a wonderful new reality with a modeling group featuring some of the most beautiful girls of SL!

Jaquelyne on the other hand has been a flickrite for the longer time, but only recently she truly committed to it and got more in the spotlight. The driving force of her household, she is inexhaustible energy on and off camera, and of course I am referring to her constant support to other artists on the platform, were you thinking of something sexual?  Tsk tsk! Jaqui thought that before you anyway and chances are she enacted it! Jaqui brought to this exhibition a lot of sensuality on top of the raw sexual energy that inspires the other beautiful artists around her, and we had to exercise restraint to limit the appearances of her post-Sunday Gleeful Glutes. But it was not hard (ahem) to pick other favourites too, because she’s got the right eye for sizzlin’ hot!

Join us tonight, February 15th at 8PM to meet the artists and celebrate their talent. And the way we choose to celebrate, ça va sans dire, is with a wild party Gemini-style with our wonderful dj Zuby Gloom. Tm. Join us and let’s have a blast! Oh! I haven’t even mentioned the other projects we have going on right now but…stay tuned, right? A leap year gives us one extra day to be purrrty wicked!

 

New Exhibition: Stifler

Time flies, and it’s already our last exhibition for this year. How to cap an extraordinary 2019? I’d say, with an extraordinary party for an extraordinary artist! We’ll do that tonight December 14 at our very ordinary 8 PM SLT timeslot, with Mr. Stifler himself!

Oh dear, both artists on the sim are guys. It’s almost an event in and of itself. Fine representatives of the category, with Stifler even being the SX Awards winner last year as designated beefcake (okay it was not the official name of the category, but ‘Male model’ makes me think Zoolander too much). Stifler’s main artistic focus though is not his own avi – which still does make the occasional appearance, ladies! – but, you guessed it, women!

The womanly figure is the absolute protagonist of this gallery show, with erotic views very pleasing to the senses, but what is unique in Stifler’s style is how the model is part of dream-like fantasy scenarios with echoes of pure surrealism. We feel that Stifler is doing a great job balancing eroticism and a deliberate artistry in the paint-like composition, which makes us very proud to display a selection of his work here, with new beautiful pictures to unveil for this show.

And the unveiling will happen today at 8 PM SLT! Haileymarie Redrose will bring us the tunes for this last show. It’s like Christmas coming one week early! We hope you will gift us with your presence here – join us and let’s have some fun!
