Size Matters @ Sin City Gallery...

She has done it again... Just when you thought Dr. Laura Henkel could not get any edgier she goes and curates the ultimate erotic show. When she shared the title of the show with me last year I could not have blushed any BIGGER. Not that I am a size queen when it comes to big art, but even I have limits. Well kinda...

I have to give it Dr. Laura, not literally of course, that she can put a show together and do it right. With her little gallery that could, she has brought to Downtown the kind of artwork that is expected in the City of Sin. Whether it is a phallus, a vagina or a contemporary rose by any other name, she has it and gives it good. With an amazing line-up of artists this international juried exhibition has something for everyone.

As is stated on the website -
12” of Sin: ‘So Much Art You Can Barely Fit It All In’ is an annual art show exhibiting the finest art by juror-selected artists from around the world. Hosted by Las Vegas’ Sin City Gallery, the exhibition explores the variety of subjects and themes with elegance and modern innovation, through a variety of work no larger than 12” square. This unique exhibition provides art patrons with the opportunity to secure the finest works of art from prestigious and emerging artists who embody both the cutting edge of today’s contemporary art world and the vast breadth of artistic expression.

I could not have said it any better myself, but I can go on an add that this is definitely an exhibition that should not be missed. Thanks to Dr. Laura First Friday in February is gonna be hot hot hot! Oh and there is an after party too!
