Being laced into a corset, can be an exquisitely sensual experience as you are pulled gradually in from the top and bottom towards the middle. The sensation of being embraced tighter and tighter is empowering. Join us while we honor the corset through classic, modern and alternative depictions of an exquisite garment that has been around for 100's of years.



'Cinch- The Art of Corsetry', engages the artists in sculpture, bronze, photography and mixed media to celebrate one of history's sexiest traditions. Wearable art corsets will be created from untraditional materials- corsets made from books for our literary scholars, and metal for those who prefer it a bit more raw.

We invite you to celebrate each artist's interpretation of corsetry: Fakir Musafar, Ehren Reed, Suzanne Forbes, Catherine Murty and Angela Fortain. Join our live corset models at our opening reception on February 7th, 7:00 - 10:00pm. Get cinched up and have your breath taken away by our latest exhibit, 'Cinch - the Art of Corsetry'.
