For the time-being …

Because you think your time or your being is not truth, you believe that the sixteen-foot golden body is not you. However, your attempts to escape from being the sixteen-foot golden body are nothing but bits and pieces of the time-being.

Upcoming: Dirty Little Drawings at Leslie-Lohman, NYC

I’m participating in an exhibition and sale of erotic works on paper at the Leslie-Lohman Museum’s Prince Street Project Space March 27-29.  In the words of the organizers:

The Dirty Little Drawings exhibit and sale offers viewers the opportunity to become instant art collectors, with a dizzying array of original erotic art works by over fifty artists of the Leslie-Lohman Erotic Drawing Studio.

I’ll have fifteen pieces in the show, all watercolors, depicting the beauty of the male form.  Each will be on sale for just $60!

Here’s a (small) sampling of what I’m contributing:

Postcards from the Edge — this Weekend!

Visual Aids’ 17th Annual Postcards from the Edge Benefit art sale happens this weekend. I’ve donated a postcard-sized watercolor painting to this great cause. I’ll be at the preview party Friday night (they let the artists in at 6pm, but VIP ticket holders can come at 5). The benefit sale is open to the public Saturday, January 31 from 10 to 6 and Sunday, February 1 from 10 to 4. All this happens at Luhring-Augustine Gallery at 531 W. 24th Street. Check out the Visual Aids website for all the details.

The event promises to be quite impressive.  There are over 1600 original works of art, all postcard-sized, in the Exhibit benefit.  Each piece of art is for sale for $85.
