Woodsorrel Garden Gallery
The Woodsorrel Garden Gallery sits in the centre of the formal garden on Woodsorrel, my Animal Crossing island. I use this space to host exhibitions of installation art.
The most recent exhibition, O Joy, can be visited via Dream Suite at DA- 1947-1429-2561. You can find the exhibition guide here.
Anyone is welcome to visit the Gallery. The most recent exhibition can be visited via the Dream Suite at
The Garden Gallery came about when my partner decided to try Animal Crossing on my Switch, played long enough to set up a tent, and then didn’t log in again. Stuck with an uninhabited tent in an inconvenient location, I eventually logged in as them and upgraded the tent to a house so that I could move it out of my new garden and into the woods. After a few weeks of running past a small, empty house full of cockroaches I thought about what I could perhaps do with that space. Second homes aren’t my style, so I decided to upgrade it, move it back into the garden, and turn it into a creative outlet—an art gallery. The Woodsorrel Garden Gallery opened on 23 May 2020.
