Last year, in an interview with Metro Asheville, I remarked how eager I was to see how my work would be received once I started showing in North Carolina. Well, it looks I’ll get my chance. I am happy to announce that I will be showing a handful of drawings and paintings, both new and old, from my ongoing series Dirty Dirty Love as part of Erotica Asheville, opening February 26th at The Satellite Gallery in downtown Asheville.
Erotica Asheville is the brainchild of Advocacy Through the Arts, who’s mission is to raise funds and awareness for the Western North Carolina AIDS Project (WNCAP) while creating a platform for thoughtful and considerate conversation about sexuality and sexual responsibility. This year’s event showcases work by eight Asheville-area artists and photographers and is hosted by The Satellite Gallery, located at 55 Broadway St., across the street from the Black Mountain College Museum and Arts Center. The opening is Friday, February 26th, from 7-10pm and will remain on view through the weekend. Donations for WNCAP will be accepted at the door.
The Western North Carolina AIDS Project is dedicated to preventing new cases of HIV/AIDS and promoting self-sufficiency in people living with HIV. WNCAP provides HIV-related client support, prevention, education and advocacy activities guided by the belief that all people are entitled to equal access to health care and disease prevention.
