The Art of Man is a fine arts quarterly journal (Annual in 2016) that seeks to bring balance to a genre of art that overwhelmingly favors the female figure. Every edition includes an historical reference, article on the fine art of the male figure, a directory of over 150 artists, and in-depth interviews with five artists that are courageous enough to focus on the male figure as a significant portion of their portfolio. This journal does NOT include erotic imagery, photography, cartoons or digital art but focuses instead on classical images in traditional media like painting, drawing and sculpture.
New York City, 1977 A generation of gay men came of age in the years after Stonewall, exhilarating in the boundless freedoms and temptations of that decade. And then came the 80s. Author Jeffrey Sharlach paints a brilliant picture of life in New York for a gay man at that moment in history. Running in Bed encapsulates the highs and lows of being true to oneself at a time when homosexuality was often considered a disease from which one could be cured. From the New York club scene to summers on Fire Island to the dawn of AIDS, Sharlach writes with humor, poignancy, and charm, presenting characters who are universal in their appeal. Running in Bed’s incomparable, evocative images will resonate with readers, regardless of their personal persuasion.
