Just as in RL, Second Life has a very busy and diverse art community. There are a lot of galleries in SL which cater to every ones taste of contemporary to modern art. Here are just a few I have found and feel are worth visiting.
Dreamscapes Art Gallery
This is not only an Art Gallery but also a Home & Garden Designs store all created by Carlotta Ceawlin. All the artwork is original and can be found dotted all around the store which is also a house. Art work can also be found outside. Each piece can be purchased for yourself or as a gift. I feel this is a cool way to showcase art. You can also find her work on SL Marketplace.
Art & Gallery at Studio 33
This gallery states, “No photography of created works is allowed”
Which I would think would go for any gallery you attend in SL. This gallery is spread out across the sim and to see each different pieces of artwork there is a TP station. Simply click on it and a menu pops up listing all the areas of artwork which is exhibiting at the gallery. A good place to start would be the main gallery. This section exhibited beautiful art. The main gallery is not a large section but I feel is a perfect point to start.
Art Gallery Route 7
The Art Gallery Route 7 is set on four floors. All artwork displayed is done by RL artists. The current artists being featured are; Ronin1 Shippe ,Instincta van Helsinki, John Bleriot,Aurora, Mycano , Masako, Safi Farspire, Uleria Caramel, Ohsolemio , Angyel , Taddeus Adagio , Jon Chen , Okwaho Euler , Judy Lynn India . Kisla Arkright. , Sisi Biedermann, Leaf Quar , Roxie Warwillow , Freya Merryman, SkyBlue Earthboy , Fae Varriale, Lenz Bavarro , Vangogh Rembranch , Littleone Aries , ArtWolf Eternal, Fleur Augur Landar , Moondrifth Tomorrow and Stem van Helsinki.
At the moment they are concentrating on digital art but also have pieces with mixed media, acrylics, oils, water color, inks, etc.
They also use a simple camera, no special lenses, tricks or speeds, to capture such amazing images. The gallery cannot be viewed in just one day so it is worth taking your time and exploring.
