Rune Shamen and Cierra Loxely buildt and ran the Shamen Galleries. They always strived to attract the most amazing artists, but not only that: Using themes, they managed to make exhibits where the works of different artists buildt each other up. I will never forget the Religous themes exhibit for instance:
Now the gallery is no more. Cierra told me the reasons behind the closing, so I know this is not a bitter ending. No complaints about the lab, the lack of visitors or griefers. They have had a great time running the place and working with the amazing artists in SL.
Will I miss the place? That's for sure. But on these occations, it's important to focus on the positive. This couple has spent countless hours giving us amazing art experiences. I am grateful for that, not taking it for granted. Other projects and activites are lining up, and I know it's exciting and important stuff they will fill their lives with.
"Everything that has a beginning, has an end". Now, Cierra and Rune are cleaning the slate a bit, making room for new beginnings. And who knows, some time in the future one of those may bless us in SL again.
So thanks for all you gave us, and best of luck with all your plans!
