Sex Positive Art, Thursday, February 11, 7pm.


One of the new elements that Sex Positive Week 2010 has included is Sex Positive Art. It will be a casual display and discussion featuring local artists with work surrounding themes of gender, sexuality, and Sex Positivity.

The Sex Positive Art portion is coordinated in part by Jaguar Press (http://jaguarpress.wordpress.com/), and will feature work from Katie Reinman and Kelly Hamilton's Group Show, "Inflection Points," a multimedia show exploring the metaphysics of the human body and its various states of suspended communication. Kelly Hamilton is presenting a selection of provacative photos from a few series that she has been working on since the original Jaguar Press "Women by Women" photo project. Katie Reinman has taken the same concept of exposing the self through a physical medium and applied it to resin effervescing with definition and fine colors. The artists both utilize fabric as an interpretation of personal/public expression, an attempt to visualize the elusive barrier between full self-awareness and the public gaze.

The Art portion will also feature photography by Elizabeth Bicher, Mariana Velazquez, and Qallective (queer art collective). It will begin with a walk-around display of artwork followed by artist and attendee comments. The event will take place on Thursday, February 11, at 7pm in the Soroptimist House.
