2015: ART: Phantasmagoria, by Spiral Silverstar: GIF art. Free galleries for other artists

Phantasmagoria, by Spiral Silverstar.   GIF art.  
Free galleries for other artists 
Three galleries are up for grabs for any artists out there wishing to exhibit/sell their works, absolutely free on my sim, for as long as they wish. -- Spiral Silverstar



  • The number of available galleries may be less than three by the time you read this. 
  • I hear that Fuschia Nightfire is taking one, so there may be only 2 now.
  • To ask about a gallery, contact Spiral Silverstar in Kitely

The free galeries -- Spiral Silverstar

Each gallery is 30 X 25 meters in size with high ceiling. The artist is welcomed to modify his/her space as desired. I will provide a gallery for display, and each area has been parceled off and has it's own sound and media settings (media on a prim) for the artists to use.  Each gallery is 30 X 25 meters in size with high ceiling.

The artists can each have 200 prims for their use. Any form of art is welcomed, with the only rules being:
  • 1. The artist may Sell only their Original works, but may exhibit Any art  
  • 2. The artist is very careful about script usage. Items using scripts which create lag will be returned to the artist.

GIF Art

GIF

The Graphics Interchange Format (better known by its acronym GIF) is a bitmap image format that was introduced by CompuServe in 1987 and has since come into widespread usage on the World Wide Web due to its wide support, portability, and support for animations

The format supports up to
 8 bits per pixel for each image This palette limitation makes the GIF format less suitable for color photographs and other images with continuous color, but it is well-suited for simpler images such as graphics or logos with solid areas of color

How to handle a Hypergrid address 

From any Hypergrid-enabled grid, paste the address into the address bar of Firestorm and press enter. Or paste it into the world map search bar of any viewer, search, and click Teleport when the destination is found. If it doesn't work, don't give up. Try again in couple of minutes.  Sometimes the first try fails (probably times out).  And try again a few hours later. Some hypergrid destinations are offline part of the day.
