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:



The show takes place Friday, March 27 through Sunday, March 29 at  127-B Prince Street in Soho, New York City.  The best way to find out more about the event is to visit the Facebook Event page.  You can learn more about the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art by visiting their website.


New items for sale through Etsy

I’ve been busy over the past month preparing items for sale in my Etsy store.  If you haven’t checked out the “ZephyrusArts” store yet, now’s a good time to do it.  I typically offer smaller, more affordable works on paper on Etsy.  Many of my smaller figurative (male nudes, almost invariably) pieces appear here, and are consistently popular.  I’ve added several pieces in recent weeks, including:

"Buff guy" copperplate etching available through Etsy
“Buff guy” copperplate etching available through Etsy


"Seated Man" whiteline block print, available through Etsy
“Seated Man” whiteline block print, available through Etsy

I’m also listing more abstract watercolor landscapes from the same series as the piece recently sold at the VisualAIDS “Postcards from the Edge” benefit.

I also just listed a lovely watercolor rendering of a Phalaenopsis orchid I did way back in 2009.

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.
