Join Capricorn Studios as we host The Art of KINK! at Tampa Fetish Con! For five years now The Art of KINK! has been FetCon's hottest alternative art installation, where you can find original pieces by the country's most talented and edgy artists! Come see what these incredible artists have created for this year's show. Themes range from fetish to bondage to zombie and everything in between (and some that defy description!) You might find that perfect piece you've always wanted for your home or studio right here! Many of our artists will be in attendance, giving you the opportunity to connect with these amazing creators personally! We will also have music from local musicians and DJ's playing during gallery hours, and CD's will be available to take home with you if you love the music as much as the art.

The Art of KINK! is located on the second floor of the hotel, and is outside of the Convention area. So you don't need to purchase a Con badge if you want to come by and check us out. We encourage both Con attendees and interested outsiders to pay us a visit. You never know what you might find...or find out about yourself. Capricorn Studios specializes in edgy, dark, alternative art. And we want you all to join us as we explore the true meaning of “Art that’s not afraid of the dark!”

We are excited to have Marilyn joining us in our shop for art walk. Marilyn has been reading the leaves and tarot cards for over 30 years. Over that time she has developed as a medium and medical intuitive as well as a counselor to help clients begin to resolve any problems or blockages they may be encountering in their lives, whether emotional, physical or spiritual in nature. She is known to have a high degree of accuracy and an entertaining and cheerful reading style. You're almost sure to have a good laugh and a good cry during your reading as well as a sense of breakthrough and moving on with your life. She can also spark your intuition and teach you to read the tea leaves. Readings are $1 a minute and readings usually last between 10 to 20 minutes. Let Marilyn know before hand how long you would like the reading.

Show on view Aug 1-31. Opening coincides with St. Pete's 2nd Saturday ArtWalk on Aug. 9th. Come say hello to Rocky and see his new body of work! Tarpon Springs mixed media artist Rocky Bridges is taking the work "off the wall" for a new series of sculptures.
