Artist, activist, psychotherapist, and founding member of Women and Their Work, Deborah Vanko has been creating art for more than 45 years. Whether using found materials for sculpture or common scraps of fabric cut in simple, erotic shapes, and repeated patterns, Vanko’s work elevates the subject of eroticism. Leaving exposed wire or frayed edges, she is not trying to make things perfect. If you thought you could escape the subject in the image itself, she throws it back in the viewers face with titles that might make puritans blush. These vulvas are in control. They know what, when and how they want it.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until November 4.
