When Girls were Boys and Boys were Girls

Interesting title, huh? Check out the new show opening on Friday, April 19 and running through April 10, 2010. The exhibition is displayed in the windows of Leslie/Lohman so you can only see it from the street. The opening reception is 7-9pm at the gallery.

When Girls Were Boys and Boys Were Girls is an exhibition of paintings and drawings by Grace Moon and Jen P. Harris, respectively. Focusing on portraiture, the artists use the media of oil, ink and pencil to explore themes of romance, androgyny and homosexuality in queer pop culture.

The show is curated by Cora Lambert who is on the Board of Directors of Leslie+Lohman. Each artist has four pieces in the show.

Of course it is best viewed after sundown.

Drawn Together

Well, finally I have started a blog for Leslie+Lohman. I will try to keep it up-to-date to let you know of events and shows at the gallery. I'm also anxious to see your comments...don't be us.
See our website at Leslie+Lohman Gay Art Foundation.


An exciting new show will open next week at the Leslie+Lohman Gallery in SoHo. The show is titled Drawn Together: Works on Paper and features nearly 80 artists with 140+ works hanging on the walls plus work displayed in portfolios and a whole wall of smaller drawings that are priced at $60 to $100+. Certainly affordable enough -- great bargains for good art. You don't find that true many places these days.

Rob Rosen, the curator of this show has been working day and night to make this show a success. He says he expects a large opening. So be forewarned that it will be a packed evening. Come early to avoid the crowd.

The opening reception is Tuesday, February 16, 2010, 6 - 8pm.

See you there.
