RATED R: Gallery Show

Hey folks, The Beguiling is sponsoring this provocative art show featuring a number of Toronto-area comic artists and illustrators. Check it out…!

September 18th – Oct 1st, 2009
Opening reception Friday Sept 18, 7pm-11pm
Gladstone Hotel Art Bar, 1214 Queen St. W.
Attendance is Free

The Rated R Show is curated by Eric Kim and Mara Sternberg.

Guaranteed to arouse, disturb and amuse, The Rated R Show is an exciting new outlet for local artists to explore adult subject matter. Sixteen professional illustrators, photographers, fine artists, video game and comic artists have been given the freedom to tackle the taboo.

The artists have all approached the term “Rated R” however they saw fit, whether indulging in juvenile humour, pursuing darker themes, or celebrating sexuality without shame.

The Rated R Show takes over The Art Bar at The Gladstone Hotel for two weeks beginning September 18th and running until October 1st. The September 18th opening reception (7pm-11pm) will take place during The Gladstone’s annual kickoff party for The Queen West Art Crawl. A looping projection of “Maverick”, a documentary on flesh hook suspension by video artist Madison Cawker, will be a part of the exhibit on the opening night alone. Saucy gift bags are available for the first hundred people that attend.

Participating artists: Greg Boychuk, Anthony Brennan, Kelly & Erin Carty, Madison Cawker, Mike Collier, Matt Daley, Jen Ellison, Melanie Gillis, Paul Hillier, Eric Kim, Alex Leitch, Nadine Lessio, Deryk Ouseley, Corey Pierce, Mara Sternberg, Miguel Sternberg, Kyla Vanderklugt.
