PRE BIDDING INSTRUCTIONS
After visiting the gallery you might want to purchase a unique and only copy of the exhibited artworks or to purchase a private session for a custom work with some of the SL best fashion photographers.
Next to the entrance of the Art Gallery, there is a bid board with little images of each artwork on the vendors.
To play a pre-bid, pay the vendor. For example, if one bids 250L, the vendor will accept the payment which becomes the high bid unless someone else pays more later. If someone outbids, the earlier bid is returned in full to the bidder.
The bid board and auction will be ended manually on 23 November.
November 25th, according to the United Nations, is the “International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women“. Since 2010 this event has been celebrated in Second Life with a great show lasting about one week (approximately November 18th to November 25th), organized by the committee “2Lei in Second Life“, an artistically minded compassionate group of citizens they are (about us: secondlife2lei.blogspot.it/p/blog-page_24.html). And now is the time, we need you to throw in too because 2Lei is calling out to resident artists and designers to celebrate with us as we raise awareness of these often silent victims of abuse.
We are going to have a one of a kind, unique, or unique color, single quantity auction item provided by generous designers, worn by Second Life models in our SIM The SaliMar Luxury District and an auctioned showing of your artwork in our sister SIM VIOLATOR with the proceeds from the actions donated to the United Nations Foundation Fund for UN Women to do our part to help the United Nations reach these battered women. It doesn’t take a lot to help. As an example, just 10 USD helps 6 women survivors of violence receive psychosocial counseling in countries across Africa and Asia.
