Leslie/Lohman Gay Art Foundation presents Pink & Bent, an exhibition of international artwork by queer women. The goal of this art show is to present audiences with an artistic experience that depicts the many threads that sew us together as a community. It is extremely important to note that the term "community" references a group of individuals who share many common characteristics, but come from different backgrounds and are each beautiful and powerful in their own unique way.

Pink & Bent hopes to enlighten audiences about the different aspects of being a queer woman within the context of artistic expression and freedom. We look to art with the goal of defining terms such as "queer" through the mediums of photography, painting, and sculpture to describe visually what is too complicated to define through the confines and perimeters of language.

Pink & Bent explores topics of masculine/feminine, gender roles, self-identity, and self-representation by depicting ourselves, friends, and lovers. We seek to celebrate the diversity and visibility of queer women artists.

The Leslie/Lohman Gay Art Foundation, established in 1990, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to furthering the awareness and appreciation of GLBTQ art that may not be exhibited due to prejudice and ignorance. Since its inception the Foundation’s gallery has presented over 200 exhibitions including hundreds of gay and lesbian artists whose work represents the fundamental view that “gay art” does exist and that the “gay/lesbian” artist has contributed immeasurably to our visual culture from prehistoric to ancient Greece to the contemporary era.

The Foundation has a considerable permanent collection of art, including, Andy Warhol, Duncan Grant, Delmas Howe, Jean Cocteau, Deni Ponty, Sonia Melara, Cassandra, Marsden Hartley, Horst, Bastille, Blade, Tom of Finland, Michael Kirwan, and many more.

MATTERS OF SIZE
“Cock size doesn’t matter to me. I didn’t start doing those gigantic cocks until the censors let the magazines publish full frontal nudity. I had to come up with something you couldn’t get in a photograph. So those big cocks are all for the other guys — I’m an ass man myself.” — Tom of Finland
