Sin City Gallery raised eyebrows last February with its inaugural international erotic art juried exhibit, 12 Inches of Sin. Creatives as far as Mexico and the U.K. submitted their works, with the sole requirement that pieces be no larger than 12 square inches.

With his depictions of miniature figurines scaling and sauntering over parts of the human body (both intimate and otherwise), Florida-based artist Allan Teger took the exhibit’s Best in Show award. And part of the winning photographer’s prize was his own solo show at Sin City, which opened in early January and fittingly continues through the most romantic day of the year.

Fans of Teger’s work from last year’s show can look forward to Bodyscapes, an exhibit focused on the artist’s provocative, anatomical landscapes. After viewing belly buttons doubling as swimming pools, attendees might never look at themselves in the mirror quite the same way again.
