Many artists throughout the centuries have expressed the exotic and erotic – from the sculptures of Rodin, the drawings of Maillol, the etchings of Degas and Daumier to the erotic paintings of Picasso, Norman Lindsay and Whitely. The Sculptors’ Society Gold Coast now gives local, visiting artists and the viewing public the occasion to contemplate the humourous, the serious, the mundane and the forbidden issues of love, sexuality, romance, desire, passion, pleasure and sensuality with its 13th exhibition of art in all media.
Artists practicing in all media including sculpture, painting, photography, pottery are welcome to enter the exhibition, which has prizes on offer for the winning entries which will be judged by none other than Blank’s own editor and lover of all things erotic and exotic, Samantha Morris. The exhibition opens Friday 17 October at The School House Gallery, Benowa and runs over that weekend. To enter and for more information, visit sculptorsgoldcoast.org.au/News/.
