|TOM OF FINLAND FOUNDATION|
OVER A QUARTER CENTURY OF DEDICATION TO PROTECTING, PRESERVING AND PROMOTING EROTIC ART.
Marc DeBauch: I look forward to
reconnecting with all the other erotic artists, the ones
that I know, and the new people I'm going to meet. I also
really enjoy meeting the crowd that comes to the Fair,
because they're the ones who make it happen!
Fairy Satisfaction by Marc DeBauch
|Valentine Hooven: I think of the Tom of
Finland Foundation Erotic Art Fair as being the Columbia
River for erotic artists. It's where we have to go to
spawn. It's instinctual.
John Aigner: Although art is being sold at the Fair, for me the event has been first and foremost about getting to know and mingle with my audience and fellow artists.
Gary Felgemaker: I enjoy the people, I enjoy selling. I deal in antique prints, which is kind of unique for the Fair, but people enjoy it and so do I!
Philip Hitchcock: This year I'll be highlighting sculpture from my new book, `DARK IMPRESSIONS,' - so much of the work is on loan to me from my collectors. The uncensored atmosphere of the `Arts weekend' affords me the opportunity to exhibit some of my more aggressively erotic, and dangerous works, which are usually regarded as too controversial for conventional venues.
Donald Hendricks: The most beautiful thing in the world is a naked man; that's the absolute truth. The Erotic Art Fair allows me to honor that truth.
Jeff Palmer: This show is an excellent way to present my work, especially my edgier work, to a very interested audience of collectors. Every year, we look forward to the relaxed atmosphere, the camaraderie of artists, and the opportunities to make contacts and sales. We are always proud to be associated with the Tom of Finland Foundation and its fine reputation. Come see us!
April Shelby: I love the variety of different art experiences at the show. You meet collectors from all over the world with every type of taste in erotic art and that's a wonderful thing!
Thien Tran: The Tom of Finland Erotic Art Festival is a unique celebration of eroticism that brings together erotic art creators and collectors.

TOM ON HIS WORK
"Yes, I consider my work pornography. Pornography means to stimulate peoples' sexual feelings, and I'm always very aware of that. My motive is lower than art." — Tom of Finland from the MSC Finland Website.
