Vordun Museum and Gallery

I visited the Vordun Museum and Gallery, last evening. I haven’t been here since their ‘Floating World’ exhibition, some time last year, or possibly even the year before. The Vordun is a very elegant gallery, very much like an RL ‘High Art’ gallery. The only thing I don’t like about it is the fact they force a HUD on you, as you enter… there’s no request, it’s just forced on you, and I find this gross lack of etiquette to be strangely at odds with the otherwise very sophisticated environment. I find it so invasive and irritating that I instantly remove it and anything it may have had to offer me, so, in that respect, it’s totally counterproductive of them to force it on me in the first place. Ok, I just needed to say that…

… the gallery is beautifully designed, the spaces are mostly quite intimate, and wonderfully visual…

… by which I mean the spaces themselves are visual, not just the art works that are in them…

… the works are displayed on various, perfectly coloured walls, with excellent lighting…

… the works are all old masters. You can buy many of them in the gallery shop, so I’m assuming they are all in the ‘Creative Commons’, otherwise selling them would be copyright infringement… I’ve seen plenty of that, as far as selling ‘Art’ goes, in SL, but would assume a gallery as obviously dedicated to a ‘High Art’ aesthetic as the Vordun, wouldn’t be selling work it shouldn’t be selling…

… the art works themselves are gorgeous reproductions, with deep, rich colours…

… there is a wide variety of mediums, from oils, to woodblock and etching…

… and even paired themes, like above, where there is a display of works depicting people playing instruments, alongside a beautiful display of classical and Renaissance instruments.
