Opening Event for Hilaire Beaumont This Sunday Feb. 27 at Noon!

Come by The Lost Unicorn Gallery this Sunday, 2/27 and travel through time with Hilaire Beaumont! When I first discovered Hilaire’s work a while back I was awestruck by his depiction of periods from the past, specifically his 18th to 19th century scenes. Once a major roleplayer for many years, Hilaire has managed to encompass the roleplaying aspect into most all his pieces. Every picture tells a story and most people can either relate to the scene, are familiar with it or just purely enjoy it. The poses and costumes he uses as well as overall composition, lighting and color all come into play when Hilaire creates one of his amazing scenes. He has made several new, never posted works especially for the show! Come dressed as a character from the past (or future!) and stop by this must see event!

Master Lysios (ML) will be singing some classic rock tunes for us during the event! ML’s whole life has been dedicated to music. He’s always been a fan of Classic Rock, and especially fond of Pink Floyd. While he enjoyed singing day to day, it wasn’t until he met his lady Rhesa that it was discovered he really had an incredible talent. With her encouragement and guidance, he began singing live on Second Life. This opened up a whole new world to ML, and his passion for performing grew more with each performance. Today, ML is a dynamic performer who interacts and includes his audience with each one of his performances. Personalizing his performance to suit the venue and his listeners. He’s unique in the way he can zero in on someone and set a fire to the audiences he performs for. ML specializes in classic rock, ie: Billy Idol, ZZ-Top, The Doors, AC/DC, Metallica, The Golden Earring, and Fleetwood Mac. His favorite to perform though, is Pink Floyd.

Enter Enchantment’s The Iliad and The Odyssey Photo Contest!

The Iliad and The Odyssey by Homer are the earliest works of Western literature and are the wellspring for much of Western culture. Both stories are considered Epic literature due to the scope in size of the events taking place within the story. It is believed that “Homer” was not one person but multiple people who wrote these epic tales.

The Iliad focuses on some of the significant events of the final weeks of the Trojan War and the Greek siege of the city of Troy. The Odyssey takes the fall of the city of Troy (the end of the Iliad) as its starting point and crafts a new epic around the struggle of one of those Greek warriors, the hero Odysseus.

Exhibition Honoring the Memory of Amber Wild This Saturday, 1/15 at 12 noon!

I think most of us here in Flickr were touched in some way by Amber Wild. She had an amazing stream of beautiful, imaginative pictures with her focus on headshots and portraits. More than her gorgeous artwork, she had a heart as big as life and loved supporting others in their creative endeavors. From all new artists to well established, Amber always took the time to comment and encourage others with their artwork. She was an amazing presence and supporter of the arts and will never be forgotten.

Serina and Aziza Rose recently approached me about honoring Amber’s memory with an exhibition of her pictures. Of course I was touched and honored to be a part of such a wonderful project!

Please stop in for our Opening on Saturday 1/15 at noon and view a beautiful collection of Amber’s artwork in honor of her memory. DJ Toya will be playing music for the event.
