Prepare your senses, and your heart, for a steamy collection of the suggestively quirky and the salaciously spicy. Like a sip of red wine on satin sheets, Light Grey Art Lab’s February exhibition promises to be a perfect event for a romantic rendezvous or self-love celebration. Concepts of love, the body, and art have always coexisted - with great emotion comes great art, and naturally, creators frequently work to find unique ways to express these complex and beautiful facets of being a human.
The delicate curves of a body emerge through the settling dust of chalk pastel. The artist peers over their drawing board at a trusted model, reclining elegantly on their vintage lounge sofa. Their masterpiece is complete… An exploration capturing the inherent beauty of the human form. The Tasteful Nudes Exhibition includes 50+ creatives and is a celebration of the sensual, the subtle, and the sensory aspects of the human form. From sexy self-portraits and boudoir-esque paintings, to romantic reclining poses, to suggestive silhouettes, 'Tasteful' is the key word! Works include original drawings and digital illustrations.

Innuendo Exhibition: a tongue and cheek(s) exhibition
Innuendo is a collaborative exhibition of artwork and goods featuring playful allusions to the lewd and salacious. The 80 featured artists have come together for Light Grey Art Lab’s yearly swap event, in which each artist creates enough of their chosen artwork or object to share with their fellow exhibitors. Participants have created a range of limited edition art objects including pins, postcards, stickers, zines, patches and more that dance around taboo subjects with humorous imagery. Limited quantities of each item will also be available during the opening reception and on Light Grey Art Lab’s online store.

Online Project + Exhibition celebrating creative singles!
This February, we want to put a spotlight on the beautiful and unique singles that make up the creative community. Creatives have a unique way of looking at the world and themselves, and we want to celebrate what makes them great partners. Participants in the #LOVESONA project draw a portrait of themselves or a creative friend, write a bio about their/their friends’ deepest passions and interests, and then post it with the hashtag #lovesona! Along with these profiles, we’ll also be creating interactive content and activities on the Lovesona instagram, to help people dive deeper into what makes their Lovesona unique. Go to the instagram for more details on how to participate, take quizzes, and see the community!
