Call for Artists : Raglan Shire ArtWalk 2021

The 16th edition of the Raglan Shire ArtWalk, an extremely popular event among artists and art lovers alike, has been announced and will take place between May 16th and June 20th, 2021. This event sees the participation of more than 100 artists every year in both 2D and 3D art. The Art Walk is conducted at the Raglan Shire Sim Cluster where the 2D art work is displayed on hedges along the path while 3D art has its own assigned space.

The walk is a fascinating display of creativity by SL artists inworld. If you are an artist or photographer in SL, this is a great platform to extend the reach of your work to a large audience. The organizers have issued a Call for Artists to participate in the ArtWalk.
