The Erotic Blender Art Exhibit - a free admission multi-media art exhibit with contributions from over 60 artists; featuring Kathy Slamen's Art Photography, curated by Chris Ablett and Leanne Gillard.
Begining on February 5 the Festival comes to a close on Sunday February 10th.
The opening art exhibit reception I attended was held upstairs at the Gladstone Hotel (1214 Queen St. W) where Montréal Photographer Kathy Slamen sold some of her artistically erotic self portraits. (www.kathyslamen.com - "its a cruel world - look good in it.")

The Festival's Artwork was both thought-provoking and provocative. Some invited guests expressed that the artwork was explicitly homoerotic and that perhaps it focused too much on same-sex love and self love. However, once those stereotypes were stripped away, the only thing left was beautiful erotically expressive artwork.
The after party entitled the "Festival Meltdown" (9pm - 2am) was a community fundraiser party featuring erotic performances and short movie clip installations.
There is still time to catch the back end of the Festival's erotic current. Although the Festival officially ended here in Toronto on Sunday February 10th, it will continue across North America.
It was the perfect start to Valentine's Day week!
The creators also invite you to Come As You Are (701 Queen Street West) the world’s only democratically run, worker owned and operated sex toy store.
