The Leslie/Lohman Gay Art Foundation will have a table at this art fair.

Boasting exceptional style, a lavish decor and an entertaining program flow, The Painted Boy Erotic Art Fair will wow the art loving public. Banners hung in shades of crimson wash the room with a torrent of color, reflecting a healthy, pink blush on the faces of the arriving guests. Gazing up, our visitors are reminded of our community's rich legacy in the visual arts, as they note the boldly scripted names of gay art icons Michelangelo, Jean Cocteau, Georgia O'Keefe, Robert Mapplethorp to name but a few.

With over 50 vendors and more than 5,000 unambiguously gay artworks created by provacative local, national and international artists, our multi-hued community will be represented by captivating emerging artists as well as established gay art legends.

Exhbited art work illustrates the illusive and the mysteriously exciting, that stirs the imagination, appealing to the taste for the unconventional - pushing the collective definition of sexuality to new horizons and offering a glimpse into the future of our evolving erotic infatuations.

Venue:
The LGBT Center

Hours: Saturday 11 AM - 7 PM, Sunday 12 noon - 6 PM

MALE MUSE
"Whenever I was depressed or disgusted, I would feel him, that spirit inside, urging me back to living, back to drawing, I believe there is a lot to the world that can’t be seen or touched, and if you turn away from that — especially if you are an artist — you are avoiding an important part of life, maybe the very heart of it.” — Tom of Finland
