“La Femenina ”

Beautifully Wicked Women

With a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design from The American Academy of Art in Chicago, MReyes was ready for a career in freelance design & illustration after 3 years in the field.

Then in 1998, she co-created and became Creative Director of Feitiço Gallery, the midwest’s first commercial exclusively fetish erotica venue. Local reviews in the Chicago Tribune, MetroMix, and Skin Two Magazine(UK) led to Feitiço gaining features on Wild Chicago, Sin Cities(UK), CLTV, and MTV’s “Real World” . Feitiço also helped pioneer a provocative yearly event, “Marche de Sade”, held New Years Eve. The gallery closed its doors in 2002.

Her private involvement in the underground scene coupled with her passion for the visual arts generated her interest in live productions. She performs off-broadway in collaboration with Arena Producions in NYC at several The Black and Blue Ball’s, a major subculture event. She’s also performed in Philadelphia at Diabolique and the Libertine Ball , SMack! NYC, as well as EXIT Chicago, St. Valentine’s Day Massacre(Lab), and various fetish events at Double Door Chicago. Additionally, M.Reyes’ image can be found in “Generation Fetish”(Lee Higgs), “The Beauty of Fetish II”(Steve Diet Goedde), with earlier features in Skin Two Magazine, Fetish Magazine, Cupido(Denmark), On Our Backs, and most recently, Gothic Beauty Magazine#14.

She’s exhibited her graphic illustrations at Feitiço Gallery(Chicago), Mars Gallery(Chicago), China Club – NYC(Arena Productions), group exhibits at Arena Studios(NYC), “Soul of A Woman”-an all Woman art exhibit at the South Shore Cultural Art Center(Chicago-2005), “SUPERGIRL” at The Chambers Studios(Philadelphia-2006) and currently; APHRODITE GALLERY(Philadelphia- 2006).

“Fetish Anyone?

I have been an artist for many years working with pen and ink, paint, ceramics, metal and glass. I have found photography is my favorite way of expressing myself artistically.
My interests in photography started out in front of the camera. I have been a model for various photographers but find being behind the camera more satisfying. I enjoy creating images and evoking emotions & fetish photography is the best way to share my vision.

Oils and Charcoal by Jonathan Blount

Oils and Charcoal by Jonathan Blount

Artist’s Reception- Friday June 9th, 7pm-9pm

“A Celebration of the Male Form: Gay erotic oils and charcoal”

Jonathan Blount is a native Philadelphian. He began to pursue his artistic disposition during high school. At first, Jon decided to develop his creativity by becoming a pastry chef but he soon realized that he needed to change from cake to canvas.

Jon’s early oils were expressions of his inner voice, translating what he was feeling and hearing internally into paint. As Jon matured, he realized that he loved painting and drawing the male form. He describes his approach to artistically rendering the male form as starting with shadow and working into the light.

Intent: what happens when you are just captured by a person? You are so taken by them that you almost panic. It is erotic.

Images by William

Artist’s Reception- Friday March 10th, 7pm–9pm
William specializes in imaginative erotica, artistic nude portraiture, and fantasy imagery, with a BDSM twirl. While the imagery can be rather explicit ranging from sexy and erotic to vivid and overtly striking it is important to note that it is not “pornographic”. William implements state of the art digital photographic equipment and experience to produce the lush images.
