|"Out" by Alfred Phillips will be on exhibit in The Naughty Show at Broward Art Guild.|
3280 N.E. 32nd St., Fort Lauderdale, 954-537-3370, Browardartguild.com
The Naughty Show, an art show of erotic and naughty work presented by ArtsUnited Inc., will open with a party featuring decadent desserts and an erotic penny auction and may works.
"Out," Alfred Phillips' painting pictured above, took second place in the show. "It was inspired by a picture I took in San Francisco of a straight couple," he says. "I thought at the time how sad it is that gay people can't be as comfortable 'out' in the open sitting in a public place like that. To enhance the 'naughtiness,' I added the hand on the thigh to imply more intimacy."
The show will open 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Sept. 29. Admission is $10. Fetish/fantasy attire is welcomed, they say.
