The Erotic Heritage Museum is pleased to announce Clare O Hagan as its Summer 2018 Featured Artist. O Hagan’s latest exhibition, 'Embracing Women,' will be exhibited in the EHM’s Lobby Library, now through the end of August.

'Embracing Women' is a series of some fifty drawings and prints created over a period of two decades by artist Clare O Hagan. The prints and drawings celebrate female eroticism, empowerment, and same-sex intimacy. Based on life drawing studies, each piece explores female sexuality through the lens of O Hagan’s personal feminism. They not only explore the female experience but examines notions of sensuality and desire without self-censorship.

Irish-born Clare O Hagan is an award-winning visual artist and filmmaker who lives in London. O Hagan creates and produces art projects, ambitious in scale and concept, utilizing a wide variety of media which include printmaking, drawing, altered art, still photography, film, moving image, and textiles.

Most recently, O Hagan’s printmaking artwork was on exhibit in Japan at the Awagami International Miniature Print Exhibition 2017, where her work received an Honorable Mention, and the UK on an eight-gallery tour in the South of England. In addition to working independently, Clare O Hagan is one half of Wyllie O Hagan, a unique artistic partnership with Denise Wyllie. Wyllie O Hagan’s works have been featured in gallery exhibitions and screened at prestigious film festivals internationally.

In addition to the live exhibition, 'Embracing Women' is also available as an ebook for both Mac and PC, as well as a print edition; for more information, visit http://www.blurb.co.uk/b/8753359-embracing-women.

The Erotic Heritage Museum houses more than 24,000 square feet of permanent and featured exhibits. The museum’s ethos is that sexual pleasure and its depiction are natural aspects of the human experience, and that such celebrations of individual human sexuality – that of pleasure – must be made available to all, regardless of gender, race, or belief.

The Erotic Heritage Museum is located at 3275 Sammy Davis Jr Dr, Las Vegas, NV 89109. For more information, visit https://www.eroticmuseumvegas.com or call 702.794.4000.
