The art isn’t the only thing that will be well hung at La Petite Mort gallery if owner Guy Berube has his way. If this sounds out of character for one of my blog posts, don’t blame me. That’s how the Sun newspaper article begins.
And this isn’t a story about sexy art. The gallery, struggling to pay its bills, is renting its space to a gay porn filmmaker.
Not that this gallery would rent to just anybody. Other adult filmmakers have approached the gallery’s ower about using his sexy space. Those deals fell through because “they weren’t the right fit,” he told the Sun.
And I just did a Google image search to find a thumbnail for this post. Wowser. Looks like this gallery isn’t afraid of controversy. I’m playing it safe with my thumbnail selection.
Of course, when you work for the local paper, as I do, you’re tempted to find a story elsewhere and pose the question: “Could this happen here?”
I’ll leave that to others to answer.
