Two Art Galleries at Chilbo

By Marcel Mosswood

Chilbo is one of the oldest places in Second Life and was the place where I first interact with other Second Life residents in 2010. In the past, Chilbo was dedicated as a place for educators in real life to own a house in Second Life for their avatars. This time, educators in Second Life are still trying to maintain the uniqueness of Chilbo so that the educational atmosphere in this sim can still be felt.

Earlier this year I returned to Chilbo and managed to get a land that has a good position and hilly landscape, it is on the edge of the main road that connects the sims. I build an art gallery there to display and sell my and my son's paintings (my real-life son). I named this gallery "Marcel and Sebastian's Art Gallery" (visit:

The cozy place of Marcel & Sebastian's Art Gallery
I am quite satisfied with this place, many visitors every day and some also shop for our art so we have a good profit and many people know us in Second Life. The concept of Marcel and Sebastian’s Art Gallery is a cozy place to hang out in a calm atmosphere. It’s not a club, but a hilly cozy-calm place surrounds with artworks.

Shortly afterward I heard that there were some lands leased around my gallery. I decided to rent one of the lands that I found interesting to build a public gallery. I worked with a friend, Avianty, to help me with the administration in this gallery. The use of the gallery that I named Art2048 is free, we only rely on donations and every Linden we have to pay land rent.

We are happy to help 2D artists in Second Life to introduce their work through the Art2048 (visit:, especially artists who are just exploring Second Life to introduce their paintings, drawings, and photographs to the world. I know how hard it is to sell artworks, I've experienced it. That’s why I like to help the new artists in Second Life.

Here in the Art2048 new artist can exhibit their artworks for four months for free! That’s why I mention that this is the most wonderful time of the year when the artist helps each other.

If you are interested in joining Art2048, please contact me (Marcel Mosswood) or Avianty Resident.
