Two events this weekend hosted by Prison Art Gallery are not for the meek!

While TONIGHT's "Eroticon" auction and reception at Busboys & Poets featuring controversial prison art, hosted by Woodhull Freedom Foundation and Prisons Foundation, has hit at least one sour note ... Saturday's free mentoring training workshop at the Prison Art Gallery by ex-prisoner artists and officials from Washington DC area jails and prisons is getting MUCH praise.

A benefit for The Stonewall Community Foundation, the JOHN WATERS' "THIS FILTHY WORLD" one-man show is a “vaudeville” act that celebrates the film career and obsessional tastes of the man William Burroughs once called “The Pope of Trash.” Focusing in on Waters’ early negative artistic influences and his fascination with true crime, exploitation films, fashion lunacy, and the extremes of the contemporary art world, this joyously devious monologue elevates all that is trashy in life into a call to arms to “filth followers” everywhere.

Held at the Concert Hall at The New York Society for Ethical Culture, at 9pm on Thursday, 26 June 2008, general admission at $37.50 iincludes a subscription to Time Out New York. Filthy VIP at $100 includes Meet & Greet with John Waters, autographed DVD and reserved seating.

Vote for Erick Wilund in NYC's Artists Wanted Photography Competition

One of my favorite and certainly most talented and best photographers on flickr, Eric Wilund, is one of the featured artists in the soon to end New American Art Boom Photography Competition at Artists Wanted.

Those who know me know that this is not something that I have ever taken lightly. However, Erick's work deserves such attention.

And, as detailed in the caption of this photo ... please VOTE FOR ERICK WILUND ... and click the 5th (far right) star to vote (below the photos, where it says "Rate this Portfolio"). Clicking any of the other stars will result in a lower rating. You can vote every 24 hours, so if you vote today, you can vote at the same time tomorrow and again on Friday. I know that this is a lot to ask, but voting ends at midnight on Friday and there is a special award for the most votes from the public.

I have little doubt that once you take a glance at his flickr site you're understand why I went out on a limb to ask something that I have ever asked of you before. And may will never ask again.

But, Erick Wilund and his photography is deservant of such attention!
