The works currently on display at Aeonia Arts Showroom West is called Condamnation: A Country between Devastation and Hope. This installation was the result of the powerful effect the images coming out of Haiti after the earthquake had on Park Galleries Artist, Moeuhane Sandalwood. While some of the walls pieces are in Moe's gallery at Park, this is the place to see all of them, as well as his box constructions, which add both literal and figurative depth to the experience of Haiti's suffering.
Please do drop by, experience the exhibit and contribute generously to the Haiti relief effort.

As owner of Park Galleries for the past 2 years I have always focused on the Park Artists through encouragement, publicity, and our participation in 60 Linden Sunday and gallery exchanges. I had a small gallery of my travel "Souvenirs" but that was it.
Then all of a sudden the creative bug bit. And I became to process some of my many travel images into multi-layered photo-montages. Some use multiple images, others just rely on one. I've always wanted to open a gallery in my home sim, Pumori, but never had the time or creative energy. Then, just as quickly as creativity struck, Souvenirs/Park Galleries at Samara's Park came into being.
Please drop by and enjoy the complex and, in many cases, colorful images, as well as the restful courtyard. I will be getting more information up soon about the process and the images involved in each work, but for now just ask me any questions you may have.

Don't miss 21 of Pol's mystically absorbing boxes on display right now at Cushing Island. Be sure to use the poseballs, because many of the boxes reveal their complexity only then. The title of his exhibit is, aptly, "Be the Art."
Also showing is feather Boa and both have works for sale in support of The Children of Haiti.
We're lucky to have one or two of Pol's boxes at Park on a rotating basis, as well as some of his smaller works, but don't miss this chance to see them all!

We are excited to announce that Park Galleries now has a satellite space in the beautiful Copley Square sim. It is a well-run shopping sim with many excellent stores. We're just opposite Jori Watler's Alamood, in fact the slurl will take you to the front of that store. Just cross the street and turn left. We're just before you fall into the water :)
The exhibit will be a rotating selection of Park Artists. Currently Park Galleries at Copley Square is showing works by Rik Zwiers, Artistic Fimicoloud, Finny Yates, alba2 Rossini, Lilith Vanalten, Samara Barzane and Anya Follett.
We also have a special guest, Emme Eales, who is showing a few of her stunning glass marbles. You can see more of her work at her own gallery at Mystic Village.
Please drop by our new Park Galleries at Copley Square as well as the main Park Galleries.

For the month of February Park Galleries is welcoming Luka Dayafter and Demago Gallery to The Commons Gallery at Park. Luka has brought the work of artists from Former Yugoslavia into SL and we are honored to show a wonderful selection of their works at Park Galleries. The artists are Mersad Berber, Sadic Fahrudin and Aparin Sergej. Their styles vary from a bit of surrealism to genre scenes to beautifully antiqued images and collages.
Please come and enjoy this exchange with Demago at Park Galleries. And look for Park Artists to be in an exchange exhibit in March.
