Intricate rope bondage through the evocative lens of artist Noble Manqué
The December 1st show brings us an intimate look into the artistic and emotional aspects of intricate rope bondage through the evocative lens of artist Noble Manqué
The photographer Noble Manqué has been exploring his fascination with consensual Dominant/submissive hierarchies and erotic rope bondage for over three decades. Noble creates erotic photographs and teaches workshops in his home town of Portland, Oregon. He established Noble Rope Arts in 2008 to encourage other open-minded people to learn how to safely explore rope bondage and other forms of BDSM play as a powerful means of connecting deeply with their play partners, lovers, and themselves. He was a featured presenter at Erosfest 2009, teaching workshops on erotic rope bondage and sensual flogging. A selection of Noble's bondage photographs will be shown at Fotofest 2012 in Houston as part of the invitational Art of Contemporary Shibari Exhibition. He is the co-author of the upcoming book “Lightning Bolt Rope Bondage” and is presently working on a photo book on using bamboo poles in rope bondage.
There will be complimentary champagne and appetizers. Previous attendance range from 50 - 150+ including art enthusiasts, critics, media, artists, reps, friends and more.
Gallery Sesso is a community-building art and social space for adults.

Generally, Club Sesso is a members-only private club. However, every first Thursday, Club Sesso is open to the public for a non-sexual event from 6pm-8pm FREE of CHARGE to view a changing array of erotic artwork. If you have been curious about the club, this is a great opportunity to check it out in a non-sexual environment.
