Some 25 artists offered their interpretations of this year’s “sexy beast” theme in Gallery 1448’s annual erotic art exhibit. And plenty of art lovers turned out to see those depictions for the show’s opening reception.
“Packed house” quite accurately described the scene, as guests filled the rowhouse gallery, and spilled out onto the sidewalk. Folks could mingle while checking out the wide range of artwork… …and even enjoy a little private contemplation.
