Hotshoe Blog welcomes news on all genres of photography so thanks to photographer Thomas Hodges, who has work in the show, for pointing out this event opening tonight with the Private View.
With a tag line: “Appreciating erotic art for a worthy cause” the inaugural Art Erotica exhibition opens tomorrow and runs until 27 January at The Gallery in Cork Street. Proceeds will go to the sexual health charity FPA.
There will be talks and discussions throughout the ten-day show, including tomorrow’s breakfast event with exhibition organiser Kathryn Roberts who will life the lid on the behind-the-scenes goings on and the selection process.
PR about the event: “Art Erotica is a new event in the London art calendar that will present a long-overdue, high-profile opportunity to exhibit for artists producing work in the erotic genre. Brought to you by the organizers of the Cork Street Open Exhibition – a respected international event, founded four years ago – Art Erotica will benefit a selected charity and will be juried, with submitted work carefully and rigorously chosen for exhibition by a panel drawn from leading figures in the UK art world.
“Most mediums, including painting, photography, digital art, sculpture, drawing/graphic art, mixed media/construction and original prints are eligible for entry.”
