"Dorian Deconstructed #1" by Molly Crabapple.  Pen, ink and guache.  30" x 40"

In the 19th century, the term "Demimonde" referred to the world of the theatre, of bohemia and of high-end sex-work: where style was traded for money and class transgression was possible- though often at great personal cost.  As the American safety net falls apart, we're once again turning to the Demimonde for consolation.

Molly Crabapple's "Demimonde" explores this half-world of sex, ambition and artifice.  It also marks the debut of her new series o flarge scale works.

Held at the sumptuous Arena Studios, with free champagne and free Dr. Sketchy's burlesque drawing in the back room.  Bring your sketchpads.

About the Artist:  Molly Crabapple is an award-winning artist, author, and the founder of Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School, a chain of burlesque drawing classes with 50 branches around the world.  She's best known for her sexy, sarcastic Victoriana.  She works in pen, ink and watercolour, and lives in Brooklyn.
