Betty's art is coming out of storage after 50 years. Her work was definitely before its time.
The All Woman Orgy is one of my favorites. One of our users, PoignantPefume, had this to say:
"Absolutely love this! I'd been looking for some real, honest, lesbian artwork. Usually, I can't find anything but de Lempicka's... but here I found Betty Dodson... as a student of both art and sexuality studies, I'd love to make a living like she has here! What outstanding work!"
I can't wait for our exhibition.
This is one of Betty's drawings from her Love Picture Exhibition - and that's Betty. She and her boyfriend rigged up their polaroid camera and took pics of themselves in the throws of passion.
She drew sex from her own sex life. Love this one.

This is my favorite self portrait of Betty. She painted it in in the 1950s. I love her perky breasts, long hair - she still has the same ass.
I wonder if she knew then that she was going to be the greatest sex positive feminist of all time.

Betty's art is finally up on the site. It was a total labor of love - I had to scan slides, photoshop imperfections, upload each image individually, and add a description. There are over 400 images. I probably have about 60 hours in on this project.
While I was scanning some of Betty's sketchbook drawings, I came across this image. Immediately, I saw myself. The face, the breasts, the labia - there I was in the goddess pose struggling to achieve balance.
